Mankato’s City Center Partnership is putting together a design plan of ideas to brighten up portions of Mankato and North Mankato with light art.

Areas like Belgrade, downtown Mankato, Front Street, and portions of Old Town Mankato are included in the concepts.

The proposal stems from a Front Street Connectivity Plan, and the ideas presented aim to add a new vibrancy to the busy parts of Mankato and North Mankato while improving safety with the added lighting.
