Public-private initiative aimed for bringing in tech companies
The Minnesota Technology Corridor, a collaborative public-private initiative to attract technology companies to the north metro that would benefit from an abundant electrical capacity, unlimited fiber optic bandwidth, large parcels of available land, and the talented workforce in the area, won an Association of Minnesota Counties Award at the association’s annual conference on Dec. 11 at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud.
The Minnesota Technology Corridor is a public-private partnership between Anoka County, Washington County Community Development Agency, Connexus Energy, Great River Energy, Xcel Energy, Comcast, CenturyLink, Zayo, Arvig, cable-provider Midco, and the cities of Columbus, Centerville, Lino Lakes, Hugo, and Forest Lake.
