Welcome to Delano, MN!
Greetings! As mayor of Delano, I want to welcome you to our city as a new resident, longtime community member, or visitor alike. I hope you will find this city on the river as friendly, vibrant, and community-oriented as I believe it to be.
Delano’s River Street and Bridge Avenue have seen some changes in the past few months. Dotted with restaurants, shops, businesses, breweries, and outdoor community spaces, downtown. Delano provides amenities for all ages and encourages a flourishing sense of community, that will begin to be populated once again in the Spring weather.
2019 will be an exciting year for our city. New industries will break ground in the West Metro Business Park, expanding employment opportunities, guided by smart local government decisions. County Road 30 will be improved for ease of travel into town, which allows new developments to have improved transit. Finally, our splashpad and concession building will open for the second season, with a water heater installed. We will continue to improve amenities to our extensive parks and recreation system, such as trail improvement plans.
With new residents joining us, we hope to continue our welcoming community and to gain more participants in our community-wide events. This year has goals to continue to improve Delano and to support our community.
To the traveler and resident alike, know that you are welcomed and that this city will always be a place you can call home.
