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 rich heritage is woven into its historic downtown core, nestled on River Street and Bridge Avenue. Dotted with restaurants, shops, businesses, breweries, and outdoor community spaces, downtown Delano provides amenities for all age groups and encourages a flourishing sense of community, all just a stone’s throw from the steady current of the Crow River.
Our community takes pride in its school system, where the Delano Tigers have been named one of the top-ranked schools in Minnesota. The pride in the school system can be seen in the community’s investment to its growth, most notably expressed in the new Intermediate School that will accommodate the influx of incoming residents.
A bustling industrial park is evidence of a strong private sector that paves the way for business development, while being guided by smart local government decisions. Along with its successful business atmosphere, Delano is also host to several neighborhoods for citizens in all walks of life. Diverse residential options, from downtown apartments to twin-homes, or historic houses to new single-family dwellings, offer a place to set roots in the community. With a growing trail network, significant park space, numerous active community groups, and proximity to both the Twin Cities metro as well as rural, natural surroundings, it’s no secret that Delano is an exceptional place to visit, enjoy, and live.
To the traveler and resident alike, know that you are welcomed, and that this city will always be a place you can call home.
Mayor of Delano
