As the 2003 Master Plan says. Downtown is truly the “Heart of Hastings”. Our historic business district is a vibrant mix of retail, office, arts and dining opportunities. Public park and the regional trail system connect Downtown with the Mississippi River. The City conducts year-round programming in Levee Park making the Downtown a focal point of community activity. The opening of The Confluence in 2020 will bring new energy and visitors to the Downtown. If this setting fits your business needs, let’s work together to make it happen.
