Cottage Grove and Woodbury

Health and Emergency Response Occupations (HERO) Center

The Cities of Cottage Grove and Woodbury (MN) selected the Interact Business Group Corporation to prepare a Strategic Business Plan for a proposed public safety training facility designed to meet the needs of both cities. IBG applied its 7 Step Process to develop the full training center strategic business plan.

IBG assisted the cities to select  Leo A Daly Architects to create a pre-design site layout. The proposed facility has been named the “Health and Emergency Response Occupations Center” (HERO Center).

The Strategic Business Plan (SBP) is an important tool that can help key leaders make informed and knowledgeable decisions for the safety and well-being of first responders, the citizens, and property in their communities. This SBP evaluates options and recommends the best and most practical course of action for providing required training activities for the Partners.
