Lewiston, MN Community Input and Needs Analysis Survey

The City of Lewiston recently completed a comprehensive plan in 2023. A comprehensive plan helps a community to define the vision, goals and aspirations for the long-term development or redevelopment of the community and to plan for future needs.

A comprehensive plan helps a city to identify community priorities and goals and provides an implementation strategy for achieving the identified goals. The plan is commonly organized into components that includes subjects like economic development, public infrastructure & services, existing & future land use, transportation, housing, open space, parks and an implementation strategy.

An important part to any community’s future development is public input in order to move forward with the goals outlined in the plan. The following survey asks a variety of questions that will help the City of Lewiston gather input in the areas listed above. Your participation is valuable, and we greatly appreciate your time in answering the following questions about our community!

In order to complete the survey online, a valid email is required.  This is simply to verify the survey as a valid response, and prevent duplicate responses, and NOT to identify individual respondents. No additional personal information is required, and all responses will be compiled to review and use in analysis.

Public Works Wastewater Notice

To the residents and businesses of Lewiston

Beginning Tuesday evening August 8, 2023 the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) will be preparing for a major repair procedure. The procedure is predicted to last until Thursday August 10th. During this time, the WWTP will be unable to discharge treated wastewater. This means the WWTP will need to retain incoming wastewater within its retention basins. The City of Lewiston and Peopleservice are confident we have the storage capacity to accommodate wastewater flows during this time.

However, the City of Lewiston is asking residents and businesses to do what they can to limit the amount of wastewater they discharge to the sewer system during the duration of the repair.

We thank you for your willingness to assist the Public Works Department and Peopleservice during this time.

If you have any questions, please contact Erik Fredberg at (507) 523-2257

Thank You
