Strategic Pillars

Strategic Pillars Summaries Released

The Vision and Strategic Pillar framework was developed through the process of stakeholder and community engagement. This framework helps focus thinking on the vision, and to organize ideas and critical action areas. 

The Strategic Pillar summary reports lay out the outcomes and direction for these topics, as determined in the engagement sessions, with over 1,000 people contributing ideas and perspectives. This process has produced lots of ideas and strategic vision, which have been condensed into these documents.


Greater Mankato Growth, Inc. (GMG) is leading this initiative. They are partnering with the consultancy firm of Future iQ to develop a new vision for the Greater Mankato region.
