AWARDS & RECOGNITION - Martin County Minnesota FAIRMONT - THE FIRST TOP 20 COMMUNITY IN THE NATION The Fairmont area promotes, instills and supports the Top 20 concepts originally designed and implemented in St. Paul, Minnesota. Teachings are based on the Pareto principle which proposes that roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. In most situations where there is a group doing an activity, some will just naturally succeed more than others. Top 20 awakens in people their inside power (how they think and see) and develops their outside power (how and what they communicate) in order to create more satisfying results and a more enjoyable

journey through life. It helps people of all ages be more aware of choices they have every day to make a positive difference in their relationships and experiences. In the 20 years since initial application, the Top 20 TLC (Thinking, Learning, Communicating) curriculum has evolved nationwide. In

2013, Fairmont made a commitment to promote Top 20 throughout the entire region, engaging the educational institutions, businesses, government and the general populous. Top 20 Thinking to Create a Healthy Workplace and Community points to remember are: 1) Live Above the Line; 2) Help Others Succeed; 3) Communicate “You Matter”; 4) Honor the Absent; 5) See the Problem; Own the Problem. If you would like to know more about how Fairmont has used Top 20 Training to become a better community, visit www.facebook.com/fairmonttop20.

HISTORICAL PLACES - Martin County Minnesota The city of Fairmont was platted in October of 1857 by the Des Moines and Watertown Land Company, who also named the town for the rolling hills surrounding the adjacent lakes. The original name was Fair Mount, but this was later changed to Fairmont.

The first permanent settlers, in what is now the City of Fairmont, were E. Banks Hall and William H. Budd. In June of 1857, Budd and Hall built their homes on the lakes that still bear their names. Mr. Budd recorded the fact that in January of 1857, twenty men, nine women, and twenty-three children lived in the Fairmont area. Fort Fairmount was established in 1862, shortly after the start of the Dakota (Sioux) Indian uprising which terrified settlers throughout southern Minnesota. With the end of the Civil war and the subsiding of Indian troubles, Fort Fairmount was abandoned. The site is now marked by a plaque attached to a large native stone near the present courthouse.

The railroads initially brought prosperity to the area in those early days. Fairmont and Martin County enjoy a broad trade area and have experienced prosperity over the years and into the present time Martin County’s National Register Sites: In Fairmont: Chubb House - 209 Lake Avenue Fairmont Opera House - 45 Downtown Plaza Red Rock Center For The Arts - 222 East Blue Earth Avenue Martin County Courthouse - 201 Lake Avenue George Wohlheter Mansion - 320 Woodland Avenue Old Post Office - 51 Downtown Plaza In Sherburn: Sherburn Commercial Historic District - Main Street North; between Front and 2nd Street

MARTIN COUNTY FAIR - Martin County Minnesota The 151st Martin County Fair is August 15 - 21, 2016. Know as Minnesota’s “Other Big Fair,” it features the largest number of attractions, events and activities of any other fair in rural southern Minnesota. New for 2016, the 9/11 NEVER FORGET Exhibit and Vicenta’s White Tigers. Each year they bring you quality musical entertainment featuring local and big name talent, an Open Ranch Rodeo on Wednesday, a variety of games, rides and other amusements in the Midway by Family Fun Shows; local and regional livestock shows; 4-H, FFA and Open Class Exhibits; business booths featuring specials, sales and giveaways; Amateur Talent Contests for both adults and children; Auto Racing at Fairmont Raceway adjoining the Fairgrounds; great meals and fair food from local organizations and vendors; farm equipment display and tractor driving contest; children’s shows; donkeys and mules; Pork Cook-Off; and much more! Tuesday night: Come out and enjoy Johnny Holm. Leader and front man of the most widely known and traveled band in America,

Johnny Holm is the most entertaining entertainer performing today. The show is dedicated to the fans, and they do most of the entertaining. Mostly impromptu, the show moves with the speed of lightning and changes direction as soon as “the pied piper” notices a lag. “Never a dull moment” was never a more true description... Surrounding himself with the finest musicians in the Midwest, the band rocks, picks, and thunders along, almost non-stop from the first song to the last laugh... Millions of people have seen Johnny over the years, and millions of people have been part of his fantourage... The band plays in most of the United States but most dates are in the 5 state upper Midwest area. .. Ask anyone with a twinkle in their eye or a knowing smile about Johnny. They’ll try and tell you all about the mayhem that masquerades as a rock and roll band... Wednesday Night you will want to crimp your hair and put on your 80’s best and come rock with Hairball. Hairball is a Rock and Roll experience you won’t

The lights, sound, smoke, fire, bombs, and screaming hoards of avid fans...to merely call it a concert would be like calling Mount Rushmore a roadside attraction!

Thursday Night, August 18th, Little Texas will perform in the park. at 8:30 p.m. One of the most popular country bands of the early ‘90s, Little Texas was influenced by modern country outfits like Alabama and Restless Heart, as well as country-rock groups like the Eagles.

BUSINESS - Martin County Minnesota Economic Development Overview

Powered by a mix of agricultural and industrial industries, Fairmont has become one of the state’s leading rural communities. It has a significant industrial manufacturing base and a healthy combination of national and home-grown companies are among the more than 500 businesses operating in the city. Fairmont’s community and economic development efforts drive Fairmont to be one of southern Minnesota’s best cities for access to transportation, land availability, workforce and quality of life. Recognized as one of the top micropolitan areas in the nation for new and expanding companies, Fairmont is a growing regional hub located in southern Minnesota. During 2015, Fairmont’s Economic Development Authority assisted numerous businesses by providing educational materials, direct support and financial assistance. As a result, approximately 194 jobs were retained, 31 jobs will be created and approximately $7,750,000 in private investment was encouraged. Fairmont is excited to be a partner in all of the projects and wishes to congratulate the businesses on their growth! Although FEDA assisted a number of businesses with their growth in 2015, there were also many projects that did not receive incentives. According to our building permits, new commercial construction is valued at $11M and business additions or remodels total $2,275,000. 42

For years Martin County has been gaining momentum as a value-added ag processing center and an area beginning to explore renewable fuels. In 2001, CHS, Inc. constructed a $75 Million soybean processing facility, and several updates and expansions have followed. In the summer of 2008 BioFuel Energy, LLC began production and was one of Minnesota’s first 100 Million gallon ethanol plants and was just recently purchased by Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. Four miles to the west, Valero Renewable Fuels produces over 100 million gallons annually at its ethanol plant. Combined these three plants have created over 150 jobs with an average annual wage of approximately $40,000 per year. Economic Development Contacts:
