WILLMAR—The pieces are starting to come together for the large logistics facility to be constructed on the west end of Willmar, in the Willmar Industrial Park.
The Willmar Planning Commission at Wednesday’s meeting recommended the approval of the project’s plan, and also approved the vacation of several easements in the property the developer is purchasing from the city.
“Packaging coming in, being sorted and going out” is what this logistics project will be about, said Sarah Swedburg, business development manager for the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission. “It is an industrial development in an industrial park. We are really excited.”
The approved plan—submitted by RDC National, the project developer for a yet-to-be-named end user—was presented Wednesday to the Planning Commission by EDC Director Aaron Backman and Josh Johnson from Bollig Inc.

“We are very pleased with this particular project,” Backman said.
