Spotlight on...Scott County

The Scott County Association for Leadership and Efficiency (SCALE) was formed in 2003 to strategically approach community and economic development. One of their goals was to in- crease employment opportunities. They were hugely successful, but found that this created new challenges in housing. With estimated growth of over 27,000 new households by 2040  and demand for housing to meet the need of employees at businesses like Amazon and Shut- terfly, collective action has spurred new development efforts. New homes for 111 households in Savage and Shakopee will help Scott County move closer to their housing vision.
