Streetscape Ribbon Cutting

Following two years of construction, the community’s new ‘living room’ is ready to enjoy! A ribbon cutting event celebrating the new Downtown Streetscape was held on October 13.


With over 1,000 responses from our community members this spring, the Owatonna Restaurant Survey gather detailed information to share with developers who have taken an interest in building up Owatonna.
