Kowalski's ribbon cutting - November 2016

The mission of the Shoreview Economic Development Authority is to facilitate economic growth by supporting existing businesses, foster reinvestment in residential neighborhoods and commercial areas, and promote the creation of new business, employment and housing opportunities in order to sustain and enhance the economic vitality and quality of life in the community.

Strategic Objectives

  • Maintaining quality neighborhoods
  • Preserving housing stock conditions
  • Providing a variety of housing choices
  • Retaining business and promoting expansion
  • Supporting redevelopment of older commercial areas


The board serves with official powers in the capacity of both the economic development authority and housing and redevelopment authority pursuant to State statutes. However, the city council retains final decision-making authority on all financial and budgetary matters of the EDA.
