Centrally located between Minneapolis and St. Cloud, Elk River offers a small-town feel with “big city” amenities. And that’s evidently a big draw to employers. Elk River experienced impressive 36.23 percent job growth from 2000 to 2010. And life got a little bit easier for commuters in November 2009, when the Northstar Commuter Rail line’s Elk River Station came online, connecting the northwest suburbs to downtown Minneapolis.
