The City of Osage Prepares to Revise Its Comprehensive Plan, Seeks Input
The City of Osage is preparing to revise its comprehensive plan and seeks the community's input. Public participation and collaboration are key tenets of Iowa's smart planning principles. A Community Survey has been developed to seek initial input on the future direction and vision for Osage. The brief, online, 16-question survey is now open and will be available until December 30th, 2017. It is accessible at any time through a computer link. You may also fill out a paper survey, available at City Hall, located at 806 Main Street, Osage. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey here. Once a draft of the Plan is ready, expected in February of 2018, the community will be invited to give further input.

History of the "City of Maples"
The Maple Tree is part of Osage's heritage. In the winter of 1855-56, Dr. S. B. Chase, of Decorah purchased land in Osage. In the spring, he and other interested parties platted the present city of Osage. The streets running east and west were generally named for trees. The streets running north and south were numbered.
Dr. Chase, who named all the streets, was responsible for setting out the maple trees which line the streets. If people were not able to buy, he gave them trees, and even helped plant them. He had come from Portland, Maine, a city lined with trees. The glorious autumn colors of these maples are annually a fitting tribute to this pioneer.
