The Redwood County EDA strives to evolve and adapt the ever changing needs of businesses and residents. With the support of the EDA Board, and County Commissioners service offerings have diversified and expanded. The EDA holds great responsibility in serving its businesses, and residents to the highest level.


In 2005 the Redwood County EDA was appointed by the County Board to provide public assistance to business endeavors and the desire to further economic development efforts in diversifying local economy.


In 2006 the County contracted economic development services with the Redwood Area Development Corporation (RADC), a membership-based organization to serve the cities, townships and businesses.


In 2017, the County Board of Commissioners voted to disconnect services from the RADC, and bring all EDA activities in-house and create an Economic Development Coordinator position. A driving factor in this decision was to allow all businesses and municipalities’ access to economic development services without a membership.


The EDA Board increased the number of members from five, to seven. A representative from each of the five districts, two at large members and two County Commissioners make up the nine member board.


In May 2021, the Redwood County EDA, with the support of the County Board of Commissioners entered into contract with Lead for America for a Lead for Minnesota. The EDA welcomed Patrick Garry to the team to serve as the Broadband Coordinator for a term of two years.
