2023 City of Lakeville

Economic Development Report

Lakeville Works center stage

Last week we had the opportunity to present our Lakeville Works program at the annual Economic Development Association of Minnesota conference.

We assembled a panel that included Paul Gintner (President, BTD), Cindy Nolan (Teacher, Lakeville Area Schools), Kati Bachmayer (Economic Development Manager, City of Lakeville) and myself.

We talked to Economic Development professionals from around the state about the role of this work in

economic development and the importance of "just starting" - it is going to start small and grow from there. We shared how the City of Lakeville leadership and staff participate in our initiatives, and shaping our next generation of workforce and residents.

Thank you to Kati Bachmayer for submitting our sessions for consideration! We had a lot of fun sharing our story.

Stepping Into Your Future

The Chamber was excited to participate, once again, with our Lakeville South Capstone students to produce the second annual "Stepping into your Future" career exploration experience on January 11.

The entire Kenwood Trail Middle School 8th grade class learned about in-demand careers and corresponding high school courses they can take.

During the event, the 8th grade students chose from 14 stations hosted by local businesses/organizations. At each station, students participated in an activity related to a particular field and high school course you can take in the district.

Lakeville South High School seniors Brooke Bischof, Isaac Cin, and Leni McNamara organized this event for their STEM senior capstone project. Their primary motivation for organizing this type of event was to give younger students a better understanding of what high school courses will be available to them as they enter high school.

Thank you to our members for donating their time, and project-based learning supplies, to make this event possible:
