Going into his tenth State of the City address, Rosemount mayor Bill Droste said the annual speeches have gotten easier. But he still doesn’t look forward to it.
“It’s not as nerve wracking as the first time,” joked Droste.
For this year’s event Droste will reflect on all that happened in 2011 and then share the city’s plans for 2012. As the economy improves, Droste said the city is looking at a lot of opportunities that have come up.
“There’s a lot coming in terms of development,” said Droste.
The State of the City will start at noon March 6 at the Rosemount Steeple Center, 13885 Robert Tr. S.
The State of the City Address is sponsored by the Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce. The chamber holds the event annually as way to keep residents and business owners apprised of what’s going on in local politics.
The cost is $15 and includes a catered lunch. Las Tortillas will provide the meal. Residents who do not want lunch can attend for free.
The chamber changed the event’s format last year when it partnered with the Rosemount Rotary Club to hold the event. The club is not co-sponsoring this year, but the chamber maintained the lunch format.

For those who can not attend, the speech will be recorded and put on the city’s website at ci.rosemount.mn.us.
