About Envision 2020

Envision 2020 is a long-range community plan that involves over 400 community stakeholders back in 2006.  Over many months of visionary work, a detailed plan was written.  The Greater Mankato Envision 2020 plan defines 34 goals into 6 Key Performance Areas: Education, Economic Development, Transportation, Health & Human Services, Livability, and Community Planning/Regional Governance.

Once the plan was written, the implementation work began.  The Envision 2020 Implementation Team was formed to guide the community process of implementation, support the many volunteers and taskforces, and record the outcomes of their work.
