Regional Alliance

The Greater Mankato regional marketplace includes Blue Earth and Nicollet counties and the communities immediately adjacent. Each of the communities and counties in Greater Mankato has its own unique strengths, which together combine to create a robust portfolio of regional assets. In 2009, a progressive group of these communities and counties joined together with Greater Mankato Growth to efficiently provide both regional and individual city and county information to businesses interested in the Greater Mankato marketplace, this group is known as the Regional Economic Development Alliance or REDA. Also contributing to REDA, as a communication liaison between REDA partners and the rest of South Central Minnesota, is the Region Nine Development Commission.
