Dear Friends,

Welcome to Belle Plaine, Minnesota, a city on the move. Our city has a rich history dating back to 1854 and an exciting future.  With a progressive city council and proficient staff, we are poised for commercial and residential growth.

Located adjacent to the Minnesota River Valley along the TH169 corridor between Minneapolis/St. Paul and Mankato, our city offers a thriving business community and beautiful residential areas. The TH169 corridor provides quick, easy access to local businesses.  Our vibrant highway commercial district provides residents with an array of services and retail stores. In keeping with founder Judge Chatfield’s vision for Belle Plaine, careful planning has allowed the city to maintain a significant amount of park land and open space. These characteristics help make Belle Plaine a special community.

The citizens of Belle Plaine have a great deal of pride in their city. There are numerous recreation programs and numerous public parks available to residents. In addition, there are many opportunities for citizens to participate in community recreational and volunteer activities. Our downtown business district is strong and open to new businesses to provide more amenities to enhance our community.

To learn more about our city, explore our website. New residents are encouraged to view the information page. If you have any questions or would like more information about Belle Plaine, myself or our staff would be happy to assist you. The city hall phone number is 952.873.5553.

As Mayor, I welcome you to our city and invite you to discover the many great things Belle Plaine has to offer.
