Mission & Vision

In 2008, a group of residents came together to create a Wadena Community Economic Development Plan. Within that plan a Mission and Vision Statement was born. 

Mission Statement:

"Wadena - A great place to be...The future is ours"

Vision Statement


"Progressive, full service community enhancing the lives of everyone"

In 2016, the new town logo was created. In addition, a new town slogan was created, which can be used with or without the logo. 

"Where Big Dreams Grow"

The Mission and Vision Statement will be reviewed upon updating of the Wadena Community Economic Development Plan and development of the Official Community Plan (OCP), Spring 2017.
