For the past several decades the City of Shoreview has benefited from a growing and expanding business base. Attractive to businesses because of its ideal location and easy access to the Interstate systems, plenty of natural resources and available land, Shoreview has become home to a number of quality large and small companies. 

Retention and expansion of key businesses is an important strategy for the City to promote continued economic growth. Shoreview has developed a Business Retention and Expansion Program (BRE) to establish and enhance its relationships with businesses like yours. The BRE is an avenue for the City to gather information about local business activity, anticipate change in a company's status and work to retain businesses that provide the greatest positive economic impact.

The focus of the Business Retention and Expansion program is on building stronger relationships with our key businesses in the community. For the visit, a team of City representatives comprised of a mix of City Council members, Economic Development Commission members and key City staff persons schedule a time where we could visit with you and other members of your management team to learn more about your company's issues, concerns and plans for growth so that the City can be in a position to better assist and help your business continue to succeed in our community.  If you would like to schedule a visit, please contact Tom Simonson at 651.490.4612 or via e-mail here.

In 2013, the City of Shoreview was honored with the Business Retention Project of the Year award by the Economic Development Association of Minnesota (EDAM).  More information on the award can be found here.
