2018 Business Engagement Report

In 2018, Maplewood partnered with the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce to conduct a business engagement program in order to reach out to the business community. The 23 visits allowed the City and Chamber to gather a set of data that will prove useful in future policy and planning conversations, but there was also an opportunity to thank businesses for investing in the City of Maplewood.
