All Together Now
We’re proud of where we came from and proud of where we’re going.
For four years, a cooperative of public and private organizations—as diverse as the Scott County CDA and Mystic Lake—have been meeting monthly as a group to make the most of everything the county has to offer: housing, jobs, entertainment, and more. It confirmed what we already had a hunch about: Scott County is pretty great (see what we did there?).
We also realized the trick to supporting sustained economic development and vitality is to help people love the place they live and work by:
- Letting people know many opportunities exist
- Connecting people to opportunities
- Increasing opportunities so everyone can thrive
Unveiling Scott’s Hidden Gems! We shine a spotlight on the extraordinary individuals, captivating destinations, and delightful discoveries that make Scott County stand out. From the barista who crafts your perfect cup of joe to breathtaking hiking trails and delicious menus at beloved diners, we’re here to reveal it all. Share your undiscovered Scott secret by nominating your favorite and let’s celebrate our vibrant community together.
Focus groups informed us that there was a lack of community resources, and employers mentioned that they wish we had more ways to connect jobs to people. So we designed a unique place that plays upon private and public partnerships from surrounding communities. We’re always looking for people and businesses to help. If you’d like to find out how to be a part of the Great Scott community efforts, drop us a line!
We team up with Chambers of Commerce, libraries, organizations, faith communities, and employers to create an epic master calendar of events that you can’t find anywhere else. From concerts to festivals to school plays and farmer’s markets, it’s all there. Bookmark our calendar and stay in the loop! If you’re planning an event, let us know! Submit and we’ll help spread the buzz. In Scott County, we like to have fun!
