Downtown Facade Program
The City of Oswego and Oswego Chamber of Commerce have partnered to establish a program to assist business owners with improvements to their storefronts. Under new leadership, the chamber is striving to support and invest in Oswego Businesses. In August of 2017 Oswego will be celebrating its 150th birthday! The Chamber and City of Oswego felt this would be the perfect opportunity to implement a program that would enhance and improve our historical downtown and business district.
Thank you to everyone who has turned in their LMI surveys. If you haven't turned in the survey that was included in the October utility bills please do so as soon as possible. This survey will help the city become eligible for future grants. If you no longer have the survey you may call 795-4433 or come to the City Office to get a replacement survey and envelope. The city has begun calling residents who have not responded and will also go door-to-door if necessary to reach residents until the required percentage is reached. So please contact the city as soon as possible if you need a replacement survey.

Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley. Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem. Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
