Welcome To Osceola

Welcome to Osceola, Iowa

Osceola also offers beautiful parks: East Lake Park – east on Highway 34 that offers wonderful shelters for picnics, fishing, playground equipment, and the lookout tower. East Lake is also home to a pair of trumpeter swans (and offspring) that are a very popular attraction. We also have Q-Pond Park that has limited playground and shelters as well as walking trails. This park is located west of town on Clay Street.

3rd Annual Open 4 Business Competition

Do you have a great idea for a business but don't know how to get some funds in hand to make it happen?  Do you currently own a business that needs to expand so you can develop the ideas more fully?  If you answered yes to either of those questions, this program is for you!

Main Street Iowa and Iowa Economic Development Authority are proud to announce the 3rd Annual Open 4 Business Competition.  It's a chance to show off your business idea in your downtown.  Think Shark Tank-Main Street style!

Attached are the rules for participating in the program as well as the required documentation: Application and budget sheet.  Both are due to Derek Lumsden by 5pm on Friday, April 14th.  Derek will review the applications to make sure they qualify and the ones that do qualify will be invited to give a 10 minute presentation (with Q & A after) to our local panel of judges.  The local panel will decide who will represent Osceola at the sub-state level.

If you win the local competition, Osceola Chamber Main Street will help you with your video submission to the State.  Also, if two or more businesses apply for the local competition, the winner gets $250 towards implementation of the project.

If you have any questions, please contact Derek Lumsden at 641-342-4200 or by email at ocms@iowatelecom.net
