This is not actually part of our Park Plan process; however, it does highlight a benefit of our parks.
Ortonville makes it in the top 15 Minnesota – “Enjoy laid back living in these Charming Towns”
Here is the quote that is listed with a Main Street photo: On the border of Minnesota and South Dakota, this tiny city is perfect for a slow-paced life. It is adjacent to Big Stone Lake, and surrounded by stunning parks. – Link to Article: http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/minnesota/small-towns-simple-life-mn/
A post was made on the Ortonville EDA website on December 21st letting the community know that a process to create an Ortonville Park Plan had begun. The post provided a link to this website so that the community could bookmark the site and follow along on the process. We also shared the blog post link on the Ortonville Community Development Facebook page along with the MNbump Facebook page. (That blog post was viewed 118 times on the 21st and 114 times on December 22nd – great to see the post is reaching the public & that there is interest!). We’ve received confirmation from a couple of people that they would like to be part of the process, and we also received a binder filled with information that had been compiled by Diane Dorry during her years on Ortonville’s Park Board – which is very helpful during our current process of updating the Park Blog with the basic historical information.
