If youre looking for "livability," look no further than Lauderdale. A Twin Cities television station recently ranked it the most livable in all of Minnesota, which has itself been ranked the most livable state in the nation.
Lauderdale offers all the benefits of suburban life quiet streets, a low crime rate, and high-quality schools - with none of the drawbacks, like a long commute to the city. The Twin Cities are a mere 10-minute drive from this tranquil community of 2,700.
Closer to home, city parks offer tennis and sand volleyball courts, an archery range, hockey and figure-skating rinks, playground equipment, and picnic facilities. The city also manages a nature area where residents can follow trails through a haven of undeveloped wilderness.
Lauderdale is blessed with an abundance of starter homes, but offers a broad mix of housing choices for all income ranges. Many University of Minnesota personnel live here, along with students from Luther Northwestern Seminary.
In the next decade, Lauderdale plans an extensive series of public-works projects, including an upgrade of existing sewers and streets and the installation of curbs and gutters. City officials also plan to redevelop the Larpenteur Avenue corridor and prime acreage alongside Highway 280.
Major employers include Bolger Printing and Twin City Die Casting.
