Once a rural truck-farming community, Vadnais Heights has grown into a diverse suburban city of 13,500. To manage its continued growth, city leaders have enacted a long-range plan to address the needs of business and residents while protecting the community’s natural beauty. One-third of the city consists of rustic lakes and wetlands.

A core retail/service area is being developed in the center of the city, and 140 acres adjacent to I-35E are targeted for high-quality retail, service, and office tenants.

Current businesses include H.B. Fuller, I.C. System, Medical Graphics, DuFresne Manufacturing, Dynamic Air, Reel Precision, US Filter, Gephart Electric, GML, Wal-Mart, Target, Festival Foods, and several auto dealers.graphic

The city maintains 16 parks, and the St. Paul water utility manages a 700-acre recreation area along Sucker and Vadnais Lakes. Part of this site is to be developed into a county park with trails for hiking and cross-country skiing.

The city’s wetlands make through streets impractical in residential areas, so neighborhoods are built in cul-de-sacs. As a result, these areas have a rural, open feel, even though they’re only minutes from I-35E, I-694 and Highway 61.

People who move to Vadnais Heights tend to stay, and with good reason. It’s a community that offers equal parts prosperity, serenity and comfort, as well as an atmosphere where business can flourish.
