Welcome to the Village of Cochrane!
Nestled between the bluffs and the Mississippi River, Cochrane is a small village with lots to offer! In a recent survey, many residents commented on how they appreciate the small town atmosphere and natural beauty that the area provides for their families. The Village has its own lumberyard, auto repair shop, bank, and post office. We also have a golf course, a scenic park, and outdoor swiiming pool and several taverns/restaurants for recreation. We even have a small lake. Originally an unsightly pond, in 1966 the pond was turned into Goose Lake Memorial park. While strolling through the park you will enjoy the fountains that aerate the lake, the many trees that have been planted in honor or memory of loved ones, the ducks and geese that visit every summer or kids playing on the playground and at the swimming pool across the road.
The Village Board meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Cochrane Village Hall, 102 E 5thSt. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome. If you have a concern you would like to share with the Board; we have a Public comment period. If you are seeking action on a concern, please call the Village Clerk one week ahead of the meeting, and you will be added to the agenda. We cannot take action on an item unless it is on the agenda. Agendas are posted at the Cochrane Village Hall, Cochrane Post Office, and Alliance Bank in Cochrane the Monday before each meeting.
