Welcome to a Blue Zones Project Community! Mason City was named a Blue Zones Demonstration Site in 2012 as part of Iowa’s quest to become the Healthiest State. “Blue Zones” is a term that describes a community where people live longer, happier and healthier lives.
The citizens and businesses of Mason City have made a commitment to transform the physical, social, and civic environment to improve the emotional and physical health of residents and workers. This process results in lower healthcare costs, higher productivity, and increased economic vitality.
Our region benefits from a strong economy, built on a foundation of homegrown businesses and large international firms. A progressive educational system and top-tier health care are just a few of the perks you will find here. We invite you to experience North Iowa’s friendly neighborhoods, vibrant economy and fun things to do!
