 Gregory Contracting

Congratulations on your new location!

Gregory’s Contracting constructed a new building just south of Wyoming and moved in January 2024. This new building is 8,108 square feet which contains a larger showroom and office space to meet with more clients. They were moved from Chisago City due to outgrowing their facility and having no room to expand. Wyoming has become a wonderful community for Gregory’s, and they can’t wait to grow in this new community.

Settled in the town of Wyoming, you will find local fourth generation family-owned Gregory’s Contracting. Gregory’s Contracting holds many pillars in the success of their business such as clean working environments, quality time on home construction, fair pricing, as well as fast contact on making your dream home come true.

That's right - Chisago County HRA-EDA was selected with five other communities in the State to be considered for the "City/County of the Year"! Watch our website or our May newsletter for the final results.

The HRA-EDA is a sponsor of the MN Real Estate Journal as they are one of the largest Broker networking organizations in Minnesota.

Attending several events every year, the HRA-EDA is able to boast about Chisago County and all it has to offer to businesses large and small.

At the 2024 RE Journal Land Conference, the HRA-EDA's Executive Director, Nancy Hoffman, sat on a panel with her peers and discussed the “being -ready” concept and what opportunities Chisago County can offer those looking to expand to the north metro.  

As the lead organization, Chisago County HRA-EDA identified partners then underwent strategic planning and ultimately developed the Chisago County Child Care Coalition. This group is made up of a diverse group of people interested in solving the issues around the child care crisis. The HRA-EDA continues to convene this coalition to brainstorm and work through barriers of the child care industry. Collaboratively, they hold specific experiences relating to operation, planning, financing, advocacy and delivery of child care services. 

In March, volunteers of the coalition attended the Chisago Lakes Showcase to raise awareness of the child care shortage and spread the word about opportunities in this field of work.

Have You Heard?

If you or anyone you know has thought about being a child care provider - you don't want to miss this opportunity!
