Business & Industry in Monticello Monticello sits on the banks of the beautiful Mississippi River. Close to the core metro area, Wright County offers affordable real estate. Taxes are low and business incentives are high. There are booming businesses while still maintaining beautiful woodlands and vast open space with parks, lakes and rivers.

Monticello is the sub-regional center for shopping, business, professional, personal, health care services, dining and riveranchored recreation between St. Cloud and Maple Grove.

The area’s first industry was logging. Because of that, businesses were oriented along County Road 75 facing the river. Today, over 35,000 cars a day travel through the downtown area per day. A reSTOREing Downtown plan is in place to reorient the business community along the high traffic volume of State Highway 25.

• Average household income $80,000-83,000

One of Monticello largest employers is the Monticello Nuclear Plant (Xcel Energy). Their continued growth and need to bring in 2,000 additional employees to our area during their outages every couple years helps our local economy thrive. The nuclear plants safety record is second to none. Other larger employers include: Monticello School District, New River Medical Center, City of Monticello, and Ultra Machining Company. Small business owners find Monticello a business friendly location to start or expand a business. Monticello’s City Council has proven to be business friendly time after time. Currently, they are waiving some permit fees to make expanding and locating in Monticello more attractive. Monticello and Wright County Economic Development Partnership work to promote the economic viability of the area by cultivating an environment that allows small businesses to prosper.

population grew, Sheila spent entire days hauling corn from a grain hopper in her driveway down to the river bank for the Swans. The installation of a custom designed conveyor system now transports the corn from the gravity wagon in the driveway down to the river. This provided a more efficient use of her time and labor giving her additional hours to spend enjoying and observing the Swans herself. Sheila Lawrence, “The Swan Lady”, passed away this past April 2011 and will forever be feeding all God’s feathered and furry creatures in heaven. Her husband Jim will continue the winter feeding of the swans that Sheila began 25 years ago.

Swan Park Monticello is host to more than 2,000 Trumpeter Swans during the winter months. The banks of the Mississippi River within the city limits enjoy the open waters during the winter, compliments of the nuclear generating plant upstream, which provide the Swans an ideal wintering vacation spot. The protected viewing for the public is located on Mississippi Drive, on the east end of the city. Viewing season occurs from mid-November through the end of March each year.

A partnership for restoring Trumpeter Swans in the area emerged between the private sector, government agencies, and the public several years ago with a pair of Trumpeters that were released from Hennepin Parks. Additional pairs followed. Sheila, (also known as the “Swan Lady”) was a local resident who lived on the banks of the Mississippi River and was kept very busy hauling buckets of shelled corn from her driveway to the gentle sloping river banks of her backyard. As the wintering Swan

The funding for purchase and delivery of corn to feed the waterfowl viewed at Swan Park for the past 25 years was paid in its entirety by Sheila Lawrence with the generous help of a few of her close friends and countless Swan Park visitors. Contrary to what you may believe, no financial support is provided by any municipal or state agencies. Since Sheila’s passing, a foundation has been created to continue her legacy and to promote and grow this Monticello winter treasure. If you would like to help continue the growth of this flock of Trumpeter Swans you may do so by making a donation to the Swan City Heritage Foundation. (A 501C3 Non-profit).
