    The Anoka County north metro area grew in population 11% from 2000 to 2010 and continues to grow. From educational opportunities, parks and recreation, high speed fiber connectivity, great jobs, and a variety of transportation opportunities, there’s lots of reasons to visit or even move here as a resident or business.

    As a visitor, the 125 lakes, 18 parks, and all of the festivals held here in the north metro make it a great attraction. And, facilities such as the National Sports Center, TPC Twin Cities, and the Four Seasons Curling Club host a variety of exciting events. The National Sports Center’s USA Cup celebrated its 30th anniversary this year, 1,060 teams representing 21 states and 19 countries attended. This and the many other events they host such as the Schwan Cup, Hard Water Ice Fishing Expo, and the Minnesota Deer Classic attract people to the area throughout the year. The TPC Twin Cities hosted the 22nd Senior PGA 3M Championship this year, which helps the local economy as well as raises money for local charities. The Four Seasons Curling Club has hosted the Chinese national women’s curling team and the first annual US Open of Curling. They were also recently named the official Training Center for USA Curling.

    As a business, the north metro also has much to offer. In June 2013, a major fiber connectivity project was completed allowing for high-speed broadband services, which allows businesses to access much greater internet capacity and is approximately 500 times faster than cable. Anoka County offers programs such as ‘economic gardening’ which helps 2nd stage businesses flourish. Of course, we’d be remiss to mention that our robust MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce provides a plethora of ways in which to make connections, gain visibility, and support the community.

    Clearly, the north metro is a great place to work, live and play. Interested in learning more about what this area has to offer? Contact the MetroNorth Chamber at chamber@metronorthchamber.org or 763.783.3553.
