The Dakota County Community Development Agency (CDA) Board of Commissioners approved over $1 million in Redevelopment Incentive Grants to six Dakota County cities this spring. The Redevelopment Incentive Grant Program was established in 2006 to support and assist Dakota County cities with redevelopment goals. To be considered, each city submitted an application containing specific criteria. The following cities will receive funding from this year's Redevelopment Incentive Grant:
- Apple Valley
- West Saint Paul
Construction is well underway and on schedule in Eagan on the CDA's newest Family Townhome Development. A summer 2013 completion is anticipated and multiple families have already committed to units.
