About Rosemount
Excellent Environment to Live and Work
The City of Rosemount is 15 miles south of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. With land area of nearly 36 square miles, Rosemount residents enjoy the advantages of living in a community with both a small town and large metropolitan city atmospheres. Unusual for a city of its size, Rosemount combines industry, agriculture, and agricultural research with a rapidly growing residential community providing an excellent environment in which to live and work.

The western part of Rosemount exhibits a dynamic, expanding residential community with an older, yet vital, commercial center at its heart. Housing options include single family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and affordable housing. Residential developments with hundreds of homes are currently under development, and this pattern of growth will continue for years to come.

Rosemount is a close-knit community in touch with the urban environment. Rosemount is a community rich with resources: undeveloped land; easy access to Minneapolis, St. Paul, and other major markets; quality education; and friendly residents.

Business Community
A strong, united business community has been achieved in Rosemount through the activity and cooperation of local business, the City, the chamber of commerce, and other civic organizations. More than 500 acres of industrial- and commercial-zoned land have been reserved for development in Rosemount. Rail, air, barge, and freeway access provide Rosemount's economic community with an expedient transportation system. Four major highways link Rosemount to Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The northeastern one-third of the City is largely heavy industry with business including Flint Hills Resources (formerly Koch Refinery), SKB (industrial waste containment facility), Spectro Alloys, and Hawkins Chemical. The western one-third of the City includes businesses such as Greif Brothers (multiwall bags) and the regional home base for the National Guard. The City also launched an 80-acre business park in 1995 with tenants such as Geometrix and Proto Labs.

Education is a priority in Rosemount. Award-winning public and private schools provide both children and adults with superb educational opportunities. A major portion of the city is part of Independent School District 196, which is one of the largest districts in the state. Twelve nonpublic schools also offer education or preschool through grade 12. Dakota County Technical College, one of the largest technical colleges in the state, is yet another source of education in Rosemount.

Parks and Recreation
Community leadership has preserved 302 beautiful acres of land for 23 parks. Bordered by the scenic Mississippi River, Rosemount also contains 270 acres of the Spring Lake Regional Park Preserve. Rosemount's Community Center provides a variety of indoor recreation opportunities and meeting space, including an ice arena and gymnasium.
