Overview of
Community Heart & Soul

Mendota receives Community Heart & Soul seed grant.

There’s something special about every town: places, traditions and attitudes. These all draw people to a place that they care about and live. Like many small towns, businesses have relocated, and numerous downtown stores remain empty. Unlike other communities though, Mendota has also suffered major building losses due to fires. Despite the few set-backs, our community is still special and is still growing.


In April 2023, Reimagine Mendota was awarded a Community Heart & Soul Seed Grant Program.
Community Heart & Soul is a resident-driven process that engages all residents in identifying:

       What you love most about your community

       What future you want for it, and

       How to achieve it.


Information gathered from surveys and conversations will help guide our community’s plans, priorities and investments.

For the project we will… Involve Everyone and Focus on What Matters Most.

Together we will - Create…Build…Thrive.
