The Safari Way...
Is it possible to be successful and still be happy? Or do we have to choose? Is there a way to have both? Through his career experience and research, Steve “The Safari Dude” Fredlund has uncovered the “Big 5” drivers of success and happiness – and they are the same factors that make an African safari incredible. Join Steve on this epic adventure to approach life, work and leadership at The Safari Way as part of your Annual Meeting on Thurs, Dec 7, 11:30 am, Bunker Hills. $30/member, $40 general public, $250/table sponsorship. You can register HERE.
RSVP by December 1. Don't let the Safari pass you by!

Economic Development Updates
There is a lot of exciting things happening in the development world in the north metro. Ground breakings for new businesses, expansions, and even some major, much needed transportation projects. For all things expansion-related, the Anoka County Regional Economic Development (ACRED) initiative, of which MetroNorth was a founding partner and current executive committee member, is your go-to resource. For an overview of main road projects, visit the Anoka County Highway Department page and/or MnDOT’s Twin Cities Regional Projects page.
We know that one pending transportation project, the reconstruction of Hwy 65 (slated to begin in 2025), will bring a lot of questions. We have developed a specific page on our website to host updates as they become available. Please check back frequently.The 2023 MetroNorth Community Resource Guide Available to All
