Tracy EDA welcomes you... Welcome to the city of Tracy! Tracy, MN, is a beautiful Southwest Minnesota community ďŹ lled with positive and friendly people. Whether you are here for business, vacation, or have lived here for years, we welcome you and hope you “enjoy the rideâ€? while you are here. Tracy has something for everyone. Choose from our local dining and shopping options, or enjoy a day at our country club practicing your swing. The Wheels Across the Prairie Museum is a must-see destination for those who love history. There are also multiple parks, a bike/walking trail, campground and a state-of-the-art aquatic center which includes a zero-entry splash pool and waterslides.   We are extremely proud of our local  K-12 school system which includes both public and parochial schools. Our community places a high value on education and strongly supports the schools, their staff, and extracurricular activities. We are an agricultural-based community with a rich history and a progressive view for the future. The options here are limitless. Our recently-remodeled Sanford Hospital and Clinic serve the medical needs of our community. A newly awarded DEED grant will revitalize homes throughout the town. New housing additions are underway, along with new industrial and retail development.  The Economic Development Authority of Tracy works to ensure a healthy economic climate for the City of Tracy.   Enjoy our beautiful community. Relax and take in a beautiful sunset over the prairie or visit us over Labor Day to celebrate the “World’s Only Box Car Days.â€?  Tracy is a great place to visit, but an even better place to live and raise a family. Sincerely, 

- Jeff Carpenter, EDA Director

TRACY COMMUNITY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7

Tracy Development Corporation In less than two years since the formation of Tracy Development Corporation (TDC) a variety of activities have kept the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer board busy. The non-profit organization devotes their time to fostering new or expanding businesses, development of properties, enlarging the membership base by their financial support, holding forums about improved broadband for the community and other informational meetings - all with the ultimate goal of adding more jobs, an increased tax base - with enlarged economic activity within the Tracy community. Recently, in conjunction with other entities in the city, the TDC helped nurture an expanding pet treat company from New Hampshire, Chasing our Tails, to re-locate in Tracy, together with other operations in SW Minnesota. This enterprise has and will continue to refurbish facilities for its ambitious plans of expanding operations as it sells products nationally. Currently several other properties that were acquired and marketed by TDC are in the final stages of acquisition by new businesses. Since forming TDC in October 2017, financial support, by a growing membership, has come from individuals and businesses in the Tracy area, while former residents generously contribute monetarily, too.

Tracy Development Corporation tours the old Tracy Bottling building.

Jim Keul, president of TDC, expressed gratitude by the board for the many contributors who have been a part of this short-term growth. He also acknowledged how vital and fortunate the TDC is for the teamwork within the City of Tracy by the council, EDA board and others who recognize the importance of economic growth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as part of the TDC mission. Individuals or companies interested in business assistance or that would like to help TDC financially are encouraged to contact Keul or refer to its website, www. tracydevelopment.org to become better acquainted with the organization or the other board members.

12 — TRACY COMMUNITY

Tracy Area Chamber continued from page 11

jammed packed weekend with events beginning on Friday evening and going through Labor Day with our Grand Parade at 1 p.m. sharp. Please look on the City of Tracy website or the Tracy Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook for a full list of events and to keep up with any changes! There are a couple of events in the fall put on by the Chamber: the Halloween night and the Light Parade! The Halloween night takes place on the evening of Halloween and includes a free will donation meal, walking parade through the downtown businesses for the kids to trick-or-treat, and a photo booth. It’s always a great time! Lexi Erickson

Funeral Services We are here to help you honor the cherished memory of your loved one.

Chamber director Our last event of the year takes place Thanksgiving weekend and is an all-day event. The Chamber, along with Chamber businesses, sponsors photos with Santa, and a Parade of Lights! Organizations, businesses and families dress up in illuminating outfits and walk through downtown while spectators enjoy hot cocoa and some glow sticks.

All of these events wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and support from the dedicated committee members, the committed Chamber Members and the supporting community we have here in Tracy.

‡ pre-planning arrangements ‡ traditional funeral services ‡ cremation services

Please call us to discuss your needs with a knowledgeable and compassionate funeral director.

Why build your business in Tracy? Chasing Our Tails was established in December of 2009 in New Hampshire. We are the premier manufacturer of U.S. made, U.S. sourced dehydrated treats, freeze-dried treats, smoked bones, antler chews, and odorless bully sticks. When we decided to build our new plant, we had to consider many factors: location to raw materials, distance of inbound and outbound shipments, and space to expand. We came to southwest Minnesota as a result of a relationship with one of our meat brokers; we decided to stay because of the warm welcome that Tracy provided. Tracy has the infrastructure, private and public economic organizations, and capacity to handle a mid-sized corporation like ours. The citizens of the town have come out in a uniďŹ ed force to help us transition to this area. The ability to have access and genuine help from the city officials, ďŹ rst responders and contractors, has fast tracked our being a part of the community.

Agriculture The highways, county roads and dusty backroads of southwest Minnesota are surrounded by corn and soybean fields — reminders that the Tracy area is part of an agriculture-based region that appreciates its hardworking farm families. At the heart of farming operations in Tracy is CHS, a farmer-owned cooperative that has worked to help America’s farmers be more successful since 1929. CHS Tracy, on 301 South Street, is one of 10 locations in Minnesota, to go along with 10 in South Dakota and one in Nebraska.

Wheels Across the Prairie Museum In 1977, a small group of citizens embarked on the long and often frustrating task of erecting a memorial to Tracy pioneers. The purpose was to collect wheels from all facets of their lives — agricultural, railroad and automotive...plus all the little wheels, which helped this country grow and prosper. The Wheels Across the Prairie Museum opened its doors on June 1, 1985, to share the story with visitors. The museum boasts the Amiret Post Office and a Car Barn with antique tractors and vintage automobiles. View the power of nature and the horror of the 1968 tornado in pictures. Stop and examine the machinery used by farmers in the early 1900’s.

A 1915 American locomotive

The village also includes the Murray County School House (District 91), an 1897 train depot from Volga, SD, the Sundquist summer kitchen, the Springdale-Imker blacksmith shop, and St. Mark’s Church. Offering end of life services to residents of Murray County and the surrounding areas. Settings include, but not limited to, private homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and Our House hospice home.

The signature attraction is a four-unit freight train. The engine is a 1915 American locomotive used in the yard of the St. Paul railroad system. The engine and the coal car were sold to a private owner in Rochester, MN and later sold again to the museum site. An immigrant box car from the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad complements the engine, as does a caboose, which is the rolling workstation.
