thank you

Many of the photos you see in this yearly resource magazine are from local photographer, Valerie Erickson.

Valerie Erickson has a love for landscapes and nature. Her career as a photographer began with an entry in a photo contest for a nature center, which she won. Her passion for photography evolved over time since then from a hobby into a profession. One of the reasons her clients value her work, they say, is that she has a good eye and compelling vision for how things could look. Valerie has owned and operated her photography business, Valerie Erickson Photography, for four years. She has been taking photos for awards ceremonies, special events and openings, and multiple publications for the River Heights Chamber of Commerce for three years. She has also been a member of the Chamber for eight years. She enjoys getting together with fellow Chamber members and the many events they host each year, especially the Business Card Exchanges. The peaceful and inspiring feelings she gets from taking photos of landscapes and nature are what make her photographs so beautiful. In addition to photography, Valerie’s other company, Ultimate Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning, has won several awards from the local Chamber of Commerce and has been recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

community IS THE KEY

location, convenience & connectivity Located in the heart of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, getting to the River Heights region (Inver Grove Heights and South St. Paul) is simple by car, plane or train. Our communities are conveniently located off Interstate 494 and Hwy. 52, within minutes of the MinneapolisSt. Paul International Airport and only five miles south of downtown Saint Paul. In addition, the South St. Paul municipal airport is in our own back yard at Flemming Field, convenient for your smaller charter flights. Our highway access gives businesses, residents and visitors quick and easy access to the entire metro. Both communities are located along the mighty Mississippi River. Approximately 34,000 residents call the Star-City, Inver Grove Heights, home. As for South St. Paul, an All-American City, more than 20,000 residents enjoy its small-town charm. Experience our rich, ethnic heritage by joining one of our many community celebrations throughout the year – check out the Calendar of Events in this publication. Our region has an active population that brings it outside, celebrating all four seasons in the unique neighborhoods. The housing market is rich with options. Whether you’re looking for a single-family home or an apartment, a fixerupper or a brand new condo, a mature looking neighborhood or a more suburban-scaled community – you can easily find a home and neighborhood that reflects your own personal taste and budget. Our region offers neighborhoods that bring families, singles, couples and retirees together. The region is made up of communities known for an educated and motivated workforce, excellent schools and neighborhoods, and a balance between commercial prosperity and community vitality.

The Missississippi River Valley provides a beautiful, nature setting and year-round recreational activities. Our schools, parks, bike trails, community centers, athletic complexes and golf courses are among the Twin Cities’ best.

inver grove heights Inver Grove Heights offers residents and visitors access to over 25 parks and over 35 miles of trails (paved and natural). Popular amenities at some of our parks include playgrounds, ball fields, tennis courts, fishing and more. Unique amenities in Inver Grove Heights include a world-class disc golf course, a skate park, a recreational pier, a mountain biking course, a golf course, an athletic complex, a community center, and a lacrosse field, just to name a few. The 27-mile Mississippi River Regional Trail stretches through beautiful Kaposia Park in South St. Paul and along the Mississippi River in Inver Grove Heights down to Hastings. Residents walk, bike and commute along the paved trail while enjoying the surrounding scenery and unique riverfront views. On your journey down the trail, you will want to make a stop at the restored and redesigned Rock Island Swing Bridge Pier. The historical double-decker bridge was taken over by the City of Inver Grove Heights and was restored to a 670’ pier using some pieces of the original bridge. Take a break, have a snack and take in the beautiful view from this unique and great City amenity. Looking to hit the links in Inver Grove Heights?

South St. Paul offers Community Gardens for residents to rent each spring/summer. The Gardens are conveniently located near the City’s Compost Site adjacent to the DNR Boat Launch.

South St. Paul’s Mississippi River Regional Trail travels along the shoreline for 5.8 miles. This paved trail was built on top of the river levee, providing relatively flat terrain and excellent scenery and views of river activity and wildlife. Five trail access points, most with off-street parking, makes the trail accessible for all ages and abilities.

south st. paul The Wakota Civic Arena in South St. Paul hosts two ice rinks, the largest of which seats 1,200 people, and is now better than ever having recently gone through a substantial remodel and upgrade. Central Square Community Center in South St. Paul serves as a very active Senior Center for those ages 55 and over. The Senior Center features ongoing activities, wellness programs, trips and tours for active older adults in the area. The Kaposia Park Disc Golf Course now features attractive professional signage at each hole’s tee-box, guiding players through the course and enhancing the disc golf playing experience. This popular disc golf course challenges thousands of players each year, both amateurs and disc golf elites.

Kaposia Landing Off-Leash Dog Park, located off of Concord Street North and Bryant Avenue in South St. Paul, is a “hot spot” for local dog owners. This park offers owners an opportunity to let their dogs run off-leash “legally” on 6.3 acres of open space. We know that choosing a location for building a business or raising a family is not always easy. Many have found the quality of life here in Inver Grove Heights and South St. Paul to be exactly what they are looking for. The River Heights region has a supportive and progressive business community which ranges from home-based businesses to fortune 500 companies. The residential community is equally attractive, with close-knit neighborhoods and endless family-oriented activities.

terest gap financing to businesses that are trying to relocate to South St. Paul or expand in South St. Paul,” explains Chris Lehmann, President of South St. Paul Future.

Progress Plus, an economic development initiative of the River Heights Chamber of Commerce, City of South St. Paul and City of Inver Grove Heights, brings local businesses together to promote the interests of the South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights business communities. Progress Plus works with government officials, loan providers, real estate professionals and small business owners to facilitate development by supporting the start-up or expansion of businesses.

Businesses can use the loan for any kind of expansion or improvement, Lehmann notes, whether that’s relocating, purchasing new equipment or giving the business a facelift.

One of the most important services they provide is information. “We serve as the conduit of information,” says Progress Plus President, Jennifer Gale. “We point clients in the right direction based on their needs.” Progress Plus connects clients with local resources they can utilize for economic growth and success, including programs like Open to Business, South St. Paul Future and the South St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority. Open to Business provides entrepreneurs and small business owners in South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights with business counseling and access to capital. The program helps clients develop a business plan, learn proper tax procedures, prepare loan applications and make other plans to secure funding. “Anybody who is either a resident or does business in our community can get assistance for free from the program,” Gale explains. And when small businesses need small loans to expand or develop, Progress Plus connects them with South St. Paul Future. South St. Paul Future is a private development corporation that provides low interest loans to businesses looking to develop in South St. Paul. “We provide low in-

A third agency, the South St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority, works closely with Progress Plus to find locations for businesses in South St. Paul. “Progress Plus keeps an inventory of the properties and businesses that are available in South St. Paul,” says Branna Lindell, Executive Director of the Housing and Redevelopment Authority. “We contract with Progress Plus to provide us with services to attract businesses to South St. Paul.” The Housing and Redevelopment Authority works with clients on an as-needed basis, assisting them with everything from obtaining government resources to learning about environmental regulations. The Inver Grove Heights Economic Development Authority strives to foster an attractive environment for both new and existing businesses by retaining existing businesses, assisting businesses with expansion, attracting new businesses to the community, and enabling the rehabilitation and redevelopment of commercial areas within the city. Progress Plus offers a wealth of resources for entrepreneurs and small business owners in South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights. So whether you’ve been in business for 20 years or have a new business idea in mind, Progress Plus can help steer you in the direction of success.

easy living

life after retirement

active programs & a healthy lifestyle We are fortunate to have so many levels of senior housing and care available in the River Heights region. If you choose to stay in your home, home care services can provide the extra help you need with everything from household chores to health care services. If you need to rehabilitate after a surgery or hospital stay, several locations offer short-term transitional care. There are many options for senior apartments, including independent living, assisted living and memory care. Skilled care, the highest level of care available outside a hospital, also is available in our area. In addition, DARTS, a community-based non-profit, supports seniors through practical services such as grocery shopping, household chores and transportation to help them stay mobile. The Dakota County Community Development Agency (CDA) was established in 1971 and has grown into one of the largest local providers of housing and community development programs in Minnesota. The CDA administers over 30 programs that are guided by the agency’s mission to improve the lives of Dakota County residents through affordable housing and community development. The Dakota County Community Development Agency has a Senior Housing Program which is designed for adults age 55+. All of the buildings are beautifully decorated, offer one and two bedroom apartments and are equipped with

amenities such as a community room with kitchen, sitting areas, library areas, laundry facilities, emergency call systems and underground heated parking. This River Heights area was built by many generations of families that still call Inver Grove Heights and South St. Paul ‘home.’ A lot of families remain in the area because it has a small-town feel and a great sense of pride, which can be pretty unusual being so close to a major metropolitan area. You can feel the small-town atmosphere throughout all ages of life. Many seniors choose to stay in this area because it is close to family and friends. If you are looking for a place to call home after retirement, you will not have to look far for many options and a high quality of life. If you are an individual with an active life style, our region is for you. The South Metro area offers wonderful golf courses, museums, theatres and community centers with plenty of recreational activities to keep your calendar booked throughout the year. There are also many great organizations that offer volunteer opportunities for individuals 55 and older, whether you’re with a business group, civic organization or as an individual.

building a brighter education for our students The River Heights region of Inver Grove Heights and South St. Paul has a school system that is both competitive and challenging. Our two school districts have been recognized for their outstanding programs, healthy lifestyle initiatives, competitive test scores and are known for being student-focused. The goals of our education system are focused around meeting the needs and desires of both students and parents. They work closely with parents to ensure each student receives ample resources, in the form of a free all-day kindergarten program, and as vocational schooling and Community Learning Center programs at the high school level. Through innovative programs and rich curriculum, our schools ensure that our students receive a superior, modern education – from honors classes and Advanced Placement courses in high school, to industrial education, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), art and music. Special education services are also provided to students, from birth to age 22, who have an identified disability. In the Inver Grove Heights school district, each building has a team that considers referrals, provides an assessment and then works with parents to develop an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that will meet the needs of the student. Both school districts are also well-known for the exceptional academic, enrichment and extracurricular activities they provide. Students consistently compete at the state level in sports, music and academics. The River Heights region is a place where parents take comfort in knowing their children will receive a high-quality education.

South St. Paul Public Schools have been offering International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program at the high school since 1986. In 2009, SSPPS became Minnesota’s first K-12 IB World Schools District after successfully being authorized in the IB Middle Years Program, serving all students in grades 7-10, and the Primary Years Program, which serves all students in grades K-6. South St. Paul’s IB program encourages students to be active learners, wellrounded individuals and engaged community members. The district has already been recognized for the program in Education Week Magazine. Students in South St. Paul now can graduate from high school with an associates degree from Inver Hills Community College without ever stepping foot on a college campus or paying for a college class. An agreement between Inver Hills and South St. Paul Public Schools allows students pursuing South St. Paul’s Secondary’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Program to earn credits at both institutions simultaneously. For South St. Paul students, this means they have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma, an IB Diploma and an Associate in Arts degree by the end of their senior year of high school. “With rising college tuition costs throughout the nation, I am pleased that our partnership will provide both academic and financial benefits to students who attend South St. Paul Public Schools,” district Superintendent Dr. Dave Webb said. In Inver Grove Heights, Atheneum, the district’s magnet program for gifted students, is available for second through fifth-graders and is a qualification entry program. The U.S. Department of Education awarded Atheneum the title of Blue Ribbon in 2011. In 2013, the Washington Post River Heights Chamber of Commerce | www.riverheights.com 17


ranked Inver Grove Heights’ Simley High School among America’s best schools in the nation. Simley has received national recognition for seven straight years. Technology is another integral part that increases educational effectiveness for every child. Through the use of mobile devices and interactive whiteboard technology, the school districts will increase the effectiveness of differentiated learning allowing students to learn at a pace that is comfortable and effective for them. Inver Grove Heights was the first school district in Minnesota to launch an app for mobile devices to be used by parents and students to access their school and student information. Both communities’ school districts are proud of their successes and are excited to enrich the lives and education of students and parents in our community.

higher education: working together to build a well-educated workforce The River Heights Chamber of Commerce knows the importance of higher education in our business community. Together with our two local higher education institutions, we work to build business support for the system that ultimately provides their biggest resource: a welleducated workforce. Inver Hills Community College was founded in 1970 and is located on a scenic 90-acre campus. Inver Hills is a respected and diverse college offering more than 50 degree and certificate options, including liberal education courses that lead to transfer to four-year colleges and careerrelated degrees in top occupational areas such as: • Nursing (RN) • Information Technology (IT) • Business • Law Enforcement • Emergency Medical Services (EMS) • Human Services Inver Hills also offers bachelors and masters degree programs on its Inver Grove Heights campus through partnerships with Concordia University-St. Paul, College of St. Scholastica, Metropolitan State University and Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. “With an annual economic impact of $250 million, Inver Hills is incredibly invested in the local economy,” Inver Hills President Tim Wynes said. “ In 2011 alone, the college generated an estimated 2,423 jobs in the Twin Cities area. The work we do amplifies growth in the local economy, and helps sustain local business and industry both through the dollars we generate, and through training and education for employees of local businesses. We are proud to be a part of and serve the south metro community.”

Located in neighboring Rosemount, MN, Dakota County Technical College (DCTC) is a public, two-year institution that provides a dynamic, flexible education to nearly 5,700 students enrolled in credit-based programs and about 4,500 enrolled in Customized Training and Continuing Education noncredit courses.

DCTC offers certificates, diplomas, A.S. and A.A.S. degrees in more than 50 instructional programs under six academic departments: • Business & Management • Design & Technology • Health & Human Services • Industry • Transportation • General Education DCTC underwent a major Transportation and Emerging Technologies renovation project made possible by $7.23 million in state funding. Designed to provide students with leading-edge labs, equipment and facilities, the renovation project eliminates $3.5 million in deferred maintenance and cuts energy consumption by as much as 30 percent. This project was completed in time for the fall semester in 2013. Both Inver Hills and DCTC are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The Citizen Police Academy is an educational and informative program that allows citizens the opportunity to learn about the issues that face law enforcement efforts in our community. The program provides insight into the philosophy and operations of the department. The Citizen Police Academy also helps residents better understand police work in their community, and develops stronger ties between the community and police department.

safe

community

Community-based policing is an important and vital aspect of crime control in any community. It’s all about the police actively working with the community to prevent crime and create a safer environment. One way to engage the community in safety is through the Citizen Police Academy program. It’s a tool used by police departments to inform the public of what they do, improve communication, and obtain citizen input, assistance and support throughout the community by sharing information. Organized by both the South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights Police Departments, community members may apply to attend the Academy which runs one night a week for three months during the fall. “An important outcome of the Citizen’s Academy is a more realistic view of the job. Citizens get a chance to experience the job of law enforcement by being the officer. Participants learn first-hand that actual law enforcement encounters are not like television. Unlike old westerns, good and bad isn’t easily identified by the color cowboy hat a person wears. When a citizen participates in scenarios they’re often surprised by how first impressions are deceiving and how fast things can change,” commented Sergeant Kasey Schrandt of the Inver Grove Heights Police Department. The Citizen Police Academy is an educational and informative program that allows citizens the opportunity to learn about the issues that face law enforcement efforts in our community. The program provides insight into the philosophy and operations of the department. The Citizen Police Academy also helps residents better understand police work in their community, and develops stronger ties between the community and police department. Sergeant David Greengo of the South St. Paul Police Department stated, “With the start of the Citizen’s

Academy just a few years ago, we have had many Citizen’s Academy participants that have gone on to become part of South St. Paul’s Police Reserve Program, as well as sitting on the South St. Paul Police & Fire Civil Service Commission. Those that have gone on to join our Police Reserves have made a great addition to the unit and have certainly been beneficial to the community.” The support given by Inver Grove Heights Police Chief Stanger and South St. Paul Police Chief Messerich is invaluable. Without their constant support, the academy couldn’t continue at the high level of quality it is known for. For more information, visit either cities websites. Another way the police departments inform the community of their efforts is at the River Heights Local Issues Meetings. Once a month, business owners gather for a Local Issues meeting to hear from Police Chief Messerich and Police Chief Stanger about their staffing, budgets, crime alerts and fraud trends that business owners need to be aware of. Department leadership believes in keeping the line of communication open between law enforcement and the local business community. The local police force is visible and is committed to partnering with residents and business owners in an effort to keep our neighborhoods safe. Our communities are proud participants in Inver Grove Heights Days, Kaposia Days and the 6th Annual Night to Unite, Minnesota’s statewide celebration. The 2014 Night to Unite will take place on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 and will celebrate & strengthen neighborhood and community partnerships. Night to Unite is sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA of Minnesota/ Iowa and local law enforcement communities. River Heights Chamber of Commerce | www.riverheights.com 25

out about

hospitality & transportation at its finest The Cities of Inver Grove Heights and South St. Paul welcome residents and visitors alike. Both cities are situated on the banks of the Mississippi River and are conveniently located just 10 minutes from downtown Saint Paul and 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights provide quick and easy freeway access to/from I-494 and Hwy 52, to many attractions and destinations, including the Light Rail transit system, currently located about 12 miles away at Mall of America, with routes to downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Our cities offer a perfect base for guests to stay and play Inver Grove Heights boosts a variety of dining options and activities such as bowling, sand volleyball, golf courses, a fine arts theater, a movie theatre and a beautiful view of the Mississippi River from the Rock Island Swing Bridge along the Mississippi River Regional Trail. Inver Grove Heights has three hotels, along with an indoor waterpark, ice arena and a number of meeting spaces inside Veterans Memorial Community Center. Furthermore, South St. Paul has fun, hometown dining options, cozy coffee shops along with mainstreet shopping, a dog park, disc golf courses and a hotel with onsite dining and beautiful banquet space. Since being built in 1887, The Historic Concord Exchange building

has been one of South St. Paul’s most prominent landmarks. Originally designed to house businesses associated with the adjacent stockyards. The building also housed South Saint Paul’s first post office and the city’s first bank. Saint Paul architect, Charles A Reed, designed the Exchange Building. He also helped design over 100 railroad stations across the country, including Grand Central Station in New York City. Locally, his best known work is the Saint Paul Hotel, which was completed in 1910. The Exchange Building became vacant in the mid 1970’s and was placed on the National Register in 1980. It remained vacant until 1998, when it opened as a hotel and operated as such for a year before closing. Several years later, the building was once again purchased and repurposed. Today, the Historic Concord Exchange is an Event Center hosting weddings, corporate and charity events, quienceneras, parties and more. With much of the original millwork intact, the interior architecture of the building is spectacular. Hotel rooms on the 4th and 5th floors are available for event guests who wish to stay after the event. The Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport and St. Paul Holman Field Airport are only minutes away. In addition, South St. Paul operates Fleming Field Airport. Fleming Field Airport is the only non-MAC reliever airport, providing no landing fees, no ramp fees, a first-class terminal building for pilots and passengers, and without fail the most competitive fuel prices in the metro area. With a 4001 foot paved runway, Fleming Field is capable of handling all types of aircraft, from Cessna 172’s to Cessna Citations. For more information on Fleming Field Airport visit flemingfield.com or call (651) 554-3350.
