Mankato's "State of the city" shares progress made on its strategic plan and discusses next steps and other opportunities.

"It's important to review and share accomplishments made, while also look for ways to build on work that's been done," said City Manager Patrick Hentges. "Providing outstanding service is a top priority for the city of Mankato organization."

Strategic decisions keep Mankato moving forward as a dynamic regional economy in the Midwest, making it attractive for investment and reinvestment. Focus areas include:

  • Enhanced livability—crime prevention and awareness, build community relationships, create a welcoming environment in Mankato’s City Center, look for ways to enhance fire service delivery and promote livable neighborhoods.
  • Smart development—to develop Mankato as a place that’s attractive to develop and redevelop in.
  • Solid financial foundation—helps ensure Mankato can maintain its preferred tax ranking, credit rating and diverse growing tax base.
  • Evolvement of the city organization—the city must continue to run as a lean organization and do more with less to provide a level of service that customers have come to expect. Staff look for ways to be innovative and creative when providing service delivery.
