The County is also home to a federally designated Opportunity Zone.  Located primarily in the City of Cambridge south of TH 95, the City of Cambridge has identified sites in its downtown, industrial park and other commercial areas. These Opportunity Zone sites are suitable for industrial development/redevelopment, multi-family development, retail/commercial development and redevelopment and technology-oriented firms. 

Located in the north central part of the Greater MSP metropolitan area, Isanti County offers employers:

  • Affordable business and industrial parks
  • Customized financing and incentive packages
  • Excellent schools, neighborhoods, and recreational opportunities
  • Exceptional workforce training partners
  • Regional center amenities including Anoka Ramsey Community College, a large Allina Medical Center and Hospital, and a wide range of shopping options
  • A stable productive rural/small town workforce as well as talent from more urban parts of the metro area

But most of all we offer a warm welcome and our commitment to helping your business locate or expand successfully.
