Business Retention & Expansion

Business Retention & Expansion Program

The goal of the Roseville Economic Development Authority (REDA) (formerly the Roseville Housing and Redevelopment Authority) is to retain and attract desirable housing and businesses that lead to employment, investment, and commitment to the community.

To help accomplish this goal and to obtain a better understanding of the local business climate, the REDA adopted a Business Retention and Expansion (BR&E) Visitation Program on August 29, 2016.  The BR&E visits are conducted by REDA staff.

If you are interested in a visit to your business, or if you have questions about the REDA or business programs available in Roseville, please contact the REDA staff at (651) 792-7015 or [email protected].

Business Retention & Expansion Survey

In November and December 2013, a task force (consisting of local organizations and individuals who live and/or work in Roseville) contacted approximately 100 to 150 non-retail businesses, with five or more employees, and invited the businesses to participate in a survey.  Of those contacted, 41 businesses participated in the survey.  The surveys were conducted using a structured survey document.

The University of Minnesota Extension Center for Community Vitality compiled the information and responses gathered from the surveys into a report. The
 report was presented to the task force on February 18, 2014.  The task force then reviewed and ranked the potential projects offered in the report which address the concerns and issues raised in the survey.
