Get Involved

Willmar Lakes Area Vision 2040 is a movement based on an evolving plan created by community members of the Willmar Lakes Area.

The plan was created after a lengthy consultation process with people from throughout the region via interviews, round table discussions, community chalkboards, and surveys. Our goal is to create a long-term plan for building healthy communities where people are proud to live, work, do business and raise a family.

Our community discussions landed on four primary goals for our community into the future.


In an effort to achieve the primary Willmar Lakes Area goals, volunteers are working on betterment initiatives year-round. 

The Bounce Back Project gives the members of Kandiyohi County an opportunity to share these ideas and apply for funding of projects that relate to the Bounce Back Project resiliency topics.

#LightUpWLA focuses on the power of uplighting our family, friends, and neighbors throughout the year no matter the reason or season. We can lift each other up through random acts of kindness spread across the Willmar lakes area.

Social distancing, responsibility changes, and overall life interruption can take a toll on a person. If we do not recognize these disturbances and learn to cope with them it can affect a person’s mental well-being. Our mental well-being is connected to our overall well-being so be sure you take care of yourself.
