What does Emmetsburg look like through the eyes of a “mystery visitor”?

James Thompson and his team from the Iowa Economic Authority were in Emmetsburg last week, touring the town to assess the positive aspects of the community, along with identifying its challenges.

Thompson and Kim Patrick of Fort Dodge Main Street Iowa met with city officials on Thursday, Aug 1 at The Shores in Emmetsburg to discuss their findings after a surprise assessment of the downtown business district and surrounding community.

During the presentation, Thompson and Patrick outlined the town’s many assets, the challenges facing the community, and some possible solutions that can help keep Emmetsburg a location of which all can be proud.
