The Region We Serve
The Southwest Regional Development Commission serves the nine-county region of Cottonwood, Jackson, Lincoln, Lyon, Murray, Nobles, Pipestone, Redwood and Rock in the far southwest corner of Minnesota.
Since 1973, SRDC has worked with and on behalf of these counties, their cities, townships, school districts, and public interest groups. These partnerships and the leveraging of resources throughout the region have led to the advancement of programs in the areas of community, economic, energy, transportation, and land use development.
