WELCOME TO THE TOWN OF RICE LAKE!
The Town of Rice Lake is rural in character with a majority of the land devoted to a mixture of agriculture and forests.
Residential and commercial development is located primarily on land with poor agricultural productivity, or is predominantly concentrated near the City of Rice Lake along the STH 48 corridor. All new developments are planned and sited in order to consider water resources, forests, and productive farmland, and to reinforce the rural
character of the Town.
The Town of Rice Lake is a desirable place to live because of its rural character, natural beauty, and proximity to regional employment opportunities. The community values its proximity to educational centers (schools, colleges, libraries,etc.), recreational amenities, USH 53, and the City of Rice Lake. Local leaders continue to work with adjoining towns, the City of Rice Lake, and Barron County to manage development and the delivery of services for the betterment of the region.
