Future of the City Forum

The Planning Commission hosts a Future of the City Forum annually.  This forum was recommended in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan and is used to help facilitate a dialogue about where the community has had success in the past and what we can do to help ensure success in the future.  Ideas and discussion at this forum from participating members of our community can help shape the future of Le Sueur and its community.

The 2023 Future of the City Forum will take place in the fall of 2023.  More information and exact dates and times will follow.
