City of Mankato hosts open house for public to learn about 2020 Community Investment Plan

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — The City of Mankato hosted an open house for their proposed 2020 Community Investment Plan Thursday evening, which identifies major city projects and improvements.

Projects in the $20 million plan look at different areas in infrastructure such as transit, waste water, storm water, sewage, parks and more.

Residents can still give their input on the plan by attending a council meeting, writing to the city or calling 311.

“I think probably the projects that I really enjoy are those basic infrastructure projects. They’re not very exciting to the average citizen, but they’re really what keeps our city running," Deputy City Manager Alison Zelns said.
