Don’t Let The Population Sign Fool You

Don’t let the sign fool you— Bemidji’s population is significantly higher than the 15,800 from the US Census projections. Why? Only a fraction of the residents actually live in the city limits.

The greater Bemidji area consists of over 100,000 people….and that’s growing quickly. Bemidji is a regional center, growing faster than St. Cloud, Duluth, Grand Forks, Fargo, Rochester, or Mankato.

Minnesotans are known for their strong work ethic….particularly in greater Minnesota. Bemidji’s workforce is diverse, educated, hard-working and AVAILABLE.
