Red Wing 2040


Dear Red Wing Citizens:

Red Wing is poised to take advantage of a number of great opportunities right now and we need everyone’s help charting our town’s future. As mayor, I’m inviting you to become involved. Your input is needed because the initiative’s final product – a comprehensive community plan - will help shape Red Wing for the next 20 years, as well as focus efforts toward short-term goals, priorities, and projects. You can follow the progress of this effort and learn about ways to become involved on this website.

Sean M. Dowse, Mayor of the City of Red Wing

Red Wing 2040 Report Card 2017

Tracking Progress and Opportunities for a Healthier, Thriving Community

The very first newly released Red Wing Report Card shares measurements in 10 topic areas about life in Red Wing. See where we stand today so we can decide where we want to go in the future and plan how to get there. Take a look, share the information with friends and co-workers, and start conversations. What surprised you in the Report Card? Where can you make a difference? Where should we as a community focus our energies for the future? Let us know if you want a presentation about the Report Card and we'll be happy to come to your venue. 

Red Wing 2040 and What's Happening Now

See how Red Wing 2040 has come together and where the project is now. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in one of the 10 Action Teams of the Community Voices Task Force. That means YOU!  If you would like to be on an Action Team, or if you have any other questions or comments, please contact one of the people below.
