Welcome

Greetings from the Mayor of Maplewood Welcome to Maplewood, a first-ring suburb of over 38,000 residents located just nine miles or about 15 minutes from Minnesota's state Capitol in St. Paul. Thanks to careful community planning, Maplewood has many woodlands, lakes and wetlands. We have beautiful parks and numerous permanent open spaces. Our residential areas offer a great variety of housing from post-World War II ramblers to modern, upscale housing as well as townhome and apartment living. To serve the needs of our older residents, Maplewood has 24 senior living centers with a variety of medical and service options. We also have commercial areas scattered throughout the city, with everything from mom-and-pop stores and eateries to numerous national chain outlets and restaurants. The city of Maplewood is over 50 years old with a history going back over 150 years. Starting out as McLean and New Canada Townships, we became the incorporated village of Maplewood in 1957. Through the years the city has developed its own police and fire departments, along with public works, parks, community development and citizen services to provide for the well-being of our residents. Maplewood's government is a council/manager form of government with a mayor and four council members all serving at-large, and the manager who is responsible for the daily operations of the city. Maplewood is fortunate to be the home of several major corporations, including the international headquarters of 3M. Also located in the city are St. John's Hospital, Maplewood Mall, and big-box retailers Best Buy Company, Kohl's, Macy's, Slumberland, Sears, JC Penney and Costco, to name just a few, and numerous owner-operated small businesses. These companies provide both employment and shopping opportunities for our residents and visitors. Maplewood and its neighboring cit­2

The two school districts have three high schools, North High School, Tartan High School and Roseville Area High School, and several middle and elementary schools located around the communities. Maplewood's greatest amenity is our park, open space and trail system. This includes 33 parks and 14 open space preserves. Our trail system consists of many miles of both regional and local trails. We are also fortunate to have Ramsey County's Battle Creek Regional Park within our city. Along with these park amenities, we also have three wonderful golf courses, Keller, Goodrich and The Ponds. Maplewood has a large indoor aquatic facility at the Maplewood Community Center and an outdoor aquatic facility at Ramsey County's Battle Creek Waterworks. The Community Center provides many additional community services, ranging from exercise classes to local theater productions, and has meeting and banquet facilities.

*UHHWLQJVIURPWKH0D\RURI1RUWK6W3DXO Greetings from the city of North St. Paul! We are glad you are reviewing this community guide and we want to tell you about our city. North St. Paul, founded in 1887, has always been a city of hard-working and dedicated citizens. Originally settled along the railroad tracks built to haul grain from the Twin Cities to Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., for shipment around the world, the city was designed to be a manufacturing town. Many of the first factories used wood products from supplies readily available from the booming timber industries located in Stillwater. Our town provided many good jobs for European immigrants coming to settle in our nation. Quality schools, numerous churches and a vital, but quaint community developed and prospered as the city grew. The city strives today to build a future just as great as our past. Excellent public and private schools continue to provide quality education for our young people and Century College is located just one mile to the north of our city. The downtown continues to offer a pleasant and quaint atmosphere to attract people. It offers many service businesses, specialty retail shops and a new medical clinic. The downtown also offers several governmental services including our new City Hall, a uniquely designed Post Office and a community center/library complex. A secondary retail area has developed in the vicinity of the Highway 36 and McKnight Road interchange that features two strip malls, several eating establishments, a quality hardware store and a major retail store. North St. Paul also offers a wide range of recreational opportunities. Check out our community center and the programs it provides. To the north side of town the city is home to two lakes, Silver and Casey. Ample park land is adjacent to both for picnics and family fun. Silver Lake is also home to our swimming beach and Casey Lake Park has several ball fields, a walkŠLillie

our wonderful city, encourage you to explore our amenities and become involved with our community. We are a community filled with pride for our past and enthusiasm for building a great future. Come be part of a quaint and pleasant community with lots of great people. You will always be welcomed! Hope to meet you soon. Mayor Mike Kuehn North St. Paul

Mayor Mike Kuehn ing path and ample space to enjoy the outdoors. To the south side of town, city volunteers are developing a new nature center. This is a great place to walk on the wood-chipped trails to check out wildlife and wildflowers. Our city also hosts the state-owned Gateway Trail that extends for more than 30 miles from near the state Capitol in St. Paul to northern Washington County. We host the only retail area along the trail, so bike awhile and then come and visit our businesses. A recently completed update of Highway 36, which bisects our city, now offers a highway interchange at McKnight Road, a pedestrian bridge near North High School and an overpass at Margaret Street. All these improvements significantly improved the ability of our residents to safely and conveniently move around our community. Our city offers a wide array of housing options, from charming older homes to more traditional housing developments. Many of the homes feature mature trees and nice yards for family activities; attributes that we think are appealing to young families. Whether you are reading this letter as a new resident or a visitor to our community, we welcome you to

History

Hi s to r y o f Ma p l e wo o d The city of Maplewood may be most well known as the birthplace of the PostIt Note, but it's also where more than 38,000 reside. This bustling suburb features friendly neighborhoods, major businesses, retail shopping districts and recreational opportunities. It's hard to imagine it once was only a mix of scrub oak and prairie land. Long before it was incorporated in the 1950s as the Village of Maplewood, the area was known as New Canada Township. Its recorded history dates back about 150 years. Originally, the Dakota Indians inhabited the lands that would later become Maplewood. Around 1850, European settlers -- the Bells, Caseys, Conlins and Vincents -- ventured from St. Paul and traveled along what is now Hazelwood Street. But their early homesteading efforts were unsuccessful because of conflicts with the American Indians, who didn't approve of their farming attempts. Eventually, though, the families received news that the Dakota had left the area, which allowed them to stay permanently on the land. While those pioneers were setting down roots in northern Maplewood, Thomas Carver began farming near what would soon become McLean Township, in what is now called the Carver Lake neighborhood in southern Maplewood. Both of these areas later became part of the New Canada Township. Stagecoaches were the first form of organized transportation in the region, but

it was the railroad industry that spurred the township's growth. The Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad became the St. Paul and Duluth Railroad, which intersected with the Wisconsin Central Railroad. At the junction of these railroads was a town site, Gladstone, which early on was predicted to "rival St. Paul." A 'funny-shaped' suburb Through the years, the little villages of Gladstone, McLean Township and New Canada Township thrived. Gladstone had a large railroad switching yard, a post office, hotel, local saloon and a brothel. In the early 1950s, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing was looking to expand and bought a large tract of land in McLean Township outside the St. Paul city limits. It was rumored that St. Paul wanted to annex that area, but 3M leadership preferred to be in a suburb, and not a part of St. Paul. The New Canada Township Board decided the best course of action was to incorporate and become a city. All of these factors contributed to Maplewood becoming a funny-shaped suburb. Its "dog leg" gives the city a very distinct look when one views it on a map. On Feb. 26, 1957, New Canada Township officially became a village. Now all it needed was a name. Village board members suggested "Maplewood" and one went into his back yard, traced a maple leaf and that became the new

village's logo. What was a population of 14,200 when the village was first incorporated has grown to more than twice that size today. Attractive place for businesses In 1974, Maplewood Mall opened its doors and now holds more than 130 stores. The two-floor retail structure is also one of the city's largest employers. Maplewood has consistently been an attractive location for different industries. Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company, now more commonly known as 3M, has its international headquarters in the city. Today, the corporation manufactures thousands of products and operates in more than 60 countries. Maplewood is a city that aspires to provide a feeling of community. The suburb is less than a 15-minute drive from downtown St. Paul and has more than 30 parks. City-owned open space, lakes, ponds and trails are integral pieces of the community. The Gateway State Trail, built on an abandoned Soo Line Railway bed, runs through the community and provides a safe place to run, walk, skate and bike. Battle Creek Regional Park has woodlands, hiking trails, picnic grounds and an outdoor swimming pool. In Maplewood, the opportunities to enjoy activities outdoors and nature are all around. The city also has a municipal community center, with a fine-arts theater, aquatics center, gymnasiums, fitness equipment and meeting rooms. Located near City Hall, the Maplewood Community Center offers many ways for residents to stay active physically and culturally. Preserving the past is also important to Maplewood residents. The Bruentrup Heritage Farm buildings were constructed in 1891. Originally established along White Bear Avenue, the farmstead buildings are now located on County Road D, just a few blocks east of Maplewood Mall. The Maplewood Historical Society hosts monthly activities at the livinghistory farm. Maplewood is also rich with entertainment and dining opportunities. There are nightclubs and a wide variety of restaurants, from national chains to family-owned eateries. While its industries and businesses have helped make Maplewood a growing and diverse community, they also inspire community involvement and provide the economic foundation necessary for residents to flourish well into the future.

History

Hi s to r y o f No r t h S t . Pa u l A city known for "The World's Largest Snowman" once had aspirations to rival the city of Chicago. In 1887, Capt. Henry Anson Castle founded North St. Paul along the shores of Silver Lake. Now, North St. Paul has been welcoming residents and visitors for 125 years. What was simply a dusty, rolling prairie seemingly boomed overnight into a prosperous city on the rise. Fifteen factories, 100 cottages, six churches and 1,500 people soon flourished in the early days of North St. Paul, which was developed in hopes of overtaking Chicago as the most illustrious manufacturing giant in the Midwest. Castle sold 40 lots for residential development on his 1,200 acres east and south of Silver Lake. The North St. Paul Land Company formed and purchased the land from Castle. The United States experienced a major depression in the 1890s, and North St. Paul did not escape the financial crisis that followed. Massive bank and business failures, including railroad companies, were just the beginning. It's estimated

that the country's unemployment rate was more than 10 percent for a majority of the decade, and North St. Paul was swept in. The suburb's residents and merchants got through it by pulling together and remaining positive. In 1893, a magnificent ice palace made of 12,000 tons of ice rose 25 feet into the air at Silver Lake and helped shift the thoughts of North St. Paulites away from the horrible financial difficulties. Neighbors held "Hard Times" parties and "Poverty Socials" to provide an uplift to the community. These are just some examples of the resourcefulness and hard work that North St. Paul folks instituted back then and continue today.

Vestiges of past still visible

At the start of the 20th century, North St. Paul residents entered into a new era of technology and growth. The economy rebounded and the population grew to nearly 2,000 by 1909. Businesses like Luger Furniture, Wick Piano and Malleable Castings Companies came to North St. Paul and provided an economic boost in

trying times. Just a few miles northeast of St. Paul, North St. Paul continued to grow and build a stronger community. While the Soo Line Railway, past manufacturing enterprises and amateur baseball teams are forgotten by many, there are still ties back to the early days of the city. Downtown North St. Paul provides a look back at the past. Many of the structures downtown have vintage brick storefronts. Neumann's Bar first opened its doors the year North St. Paul was incorporated in 1887 and remains a staple of downtown today. It's the longest continuously operating bar in the state. At the corner of Highway 36 and Margaret Street sits one of the city's most prominent landmarks and symbols. When you drive through and see the North St. Paul Snowman, aka "The World's Largest Stucco Snowman," you know exactly which suburb you are in. The snowman is a reminder of the city's former annual celebration of "Snow Frolics," when there was a giant snowman made of real snow. Lloyd Koesling designed the 44-foot-tall

'A family-friendly' city

Today, North St. Paul covers three square miles and has nearly 12,000 people calling it home. It's a family-friendly city with two major lakes and many parks. Located in the heart of North St. Paul is its community center. Built in 1992, the North St. Paul Community Center also houses the town's library. The hard work and togetherness that the city thrives on was strengthened when Polar Ice Arena was built. Volunteers and booster club members got together to make a home for the North High Polars boys' hockey team. It is now home to boys' and girls' hockey events and skating for the entire community, and has had a few famous skaters walk through its doors. Bret Hedican graduated from North High in 1988 and was a member of the National Hockey League's Carolina

The high school also has ties to baseball glory. T. Geron "Jerry" Bell, former Minnesota Twins president, grew up in North St. Paul and graduated from North High School in 1959.

it was when originally founded 122 years ago. Henry Street is named after its founder, Henry Castle, Margaret Street after his wife, Helen Street after his first daughter and Charles Street after his first son. Although Captain Castle's dream of North St. Paul mirroring the accomplishments of Chicago didn't come to fruition, it can be said that his second wish for the city has, and will continue to ring true. North St. Paul is a warm, friendly suburb of St. Paul that welcomes residents new and old. As the song, "A Hundred Years in North St. Paul" says:

"Yes, times were a little slower then, the trains were sometimes late, A quarter took you 14 miles in 1888 Though through the years a lot has changed and everything has grown To me it's still the place to be - the place that I call home!"

Education

Ab o u t District 622

The North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District describes itself as: "A community collaborative dedicated to educating and empowering all learners to excel in our changing world." With this mission in mind, School District 622 provides lifelong educational opportunities for residents of all ages. Encompassing 42 square miles, the district includes all or portions of seven communities in the northeast metro area - North St. Paul, Maplewood, Oakdale, Lake Elmo, Landfall, Pine Springs and Woodbury. Serving more than 74,000 residents, the district has nine elementary schools (kindergarten-fifth grade), three middle schools (sixth-eighth), two high schools (ninth-12th), an early-childhood education center, an alternative learning center, a special education transition program and a se-

nior center. The district's wide variety of Community Education programs serves infants to centenarians ... and everyone in between. Residents can be proud of the high-quality programs and services the district provides. From highly trained teachers in its Stepping Stones preschool to nationally recognized programs at North and Tartan high schools, District 622 is always striving to be the best. Staff members work with families and teachers to choose the most appropriate school programs and settings so children can find success. High-potential students are identified through parental input, teacher referrals and standardized test scores. And the district's Special Services staff members provide support for children with special needs. For parents of secondary students,

District 622 has the Parent Portal system, which allows parents to access their students' academic information online, from anywhere and at any time. Integrated technologies are also in place throughout the district, including the use of interactive whiteboards in district classrooms, which increase student engagement during the learning process. First-time/new students District 622 has a centralized Student Enrollment Center at the District Education Center, 2520 East 12th Ave., North St. Paul, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. For registration information, call 651-748-7550. Continued on page 12

Education

Ab o u t District 622

Continued from page 11 Elementary schools Each elementary school provides an academically and socially balanced approach to education for students in grades kindergarten through fifth. For each grade level, the district has a comprehensive curriculum that includes essential outcomes, outlining what students are expected to know and be able to do. District 622 offers free all-day, everyday kindergarten for its students. This initiative is part of the district's commitment to providing a top-notch education focused on ensuring academic success for all. The program is a full-day curriculum that provides students with a strong educational base as they begin their school careers. Middle schools District 622 embraces a middleschool concept, serving students in

grades six through eight. The middle schools are built around the "house" concept, in which each grade has a majority of its classes located in one area. A strong curriculum is at the center of the middle-school foundation, with grade-level expectations established for each subject. Besides the traditional coursework, a number of academic and social opportunities outside the classroom are offered. High schools Preparing students for the future is the foundation behind District 622's high school program. A comprehensive curriculum is designed to challenge the interests and abilities of the diverse student body. Whether students are college- or career-bound, the District 622 staff works to ensure that all graduates are prepared for that next step. College credit is offered for full- or part-time college attendance under

the Minnesota Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program and through the College In the Schools program. Both North and Tartan high schools also offer a number of Advanced Placement classes. Outside of the regular school day, students may participate in athletic team sports and numerous co-curricular activities. In both academic and athletic competitions, District 622 students regularly receive state and national recognition for their achievements. The North St. Paul-MaplewoodOakdale School District serves all of Landfall, North St. Paul and Oakdale and parts of Lake Elmo Maplewood, Pine Springs and Woodbury. District 622 has high schools in North St. Paul and Oakdale and middle schools in Maplewood and Oakdale. Elementary schools are located in all three of the district's major communities.

In addition to the traditional weight, cardio, basketball and racquetball areas, there are other ways to be active as well. Table tennis, swimming classes in one of the two pools, karate and self-defense courses are just a few examples. Also available is a theater, Subway restaurant, meeting rooms, performing arts center and dance classes. Ramsey County's newest library is also in Maplewood. The Minnesota Chapter of the American Institute of Architects named the library one of its

seven Honor Award winners in 2007. Along with its appealing look, the library has a great feel. Find a respite from the hectic moments in life to sit near the fireplace, browse the magazine collection or pick up some new sounds from the CD section before using the convenient self-checkout machines. The library is conveniently located next to the Maplewood Mall and other surrounding shopping centers. It's a great way to escape and relax. There is a Café Cravings coffee shop and usedbook store as well. Walk the woodland and pond trails, do some bird watching, attend a program or event and view the interpretive exhibits indoors and out at the Maplewood Nature Center. It's a nature sanctuary and a getaway to hike, relax and take in nature to the fullest. If you're looking for a better understanding of land, water and wildlife,

Re c re a t i o n in Nor th St. Paul

North St. Paul is a city that mixes the ambiance of established neighborhoods and mid-century homes with a progressive community that offers more than enough ways to stay active and involved. The North St. Paul Community Center is at the heart of the city's recreational opportunities. Opening in 1992, the community center has served residents of the area and inspired a healthy workout regimen for many. With the traditional weight and cardio equipment, along with basketball courts and meeting rooms, the community center has proven to be a great asset. Inside the North St. Paul Community Center is the city's library. Built in 2005, the library has a collection of nearly 20,000 materials. There are books for readers looking to indulge in everything from the classics to the newest bestsellers. The library also has an extensive collection of audio books, CDs and DVDs. One can find a great reading environment with floor-to-ceiling windows and a fireplace. There are computer terminals

with Internet access and a host of other research tools. The city's Southwood Nature Preserve gives residents a way to engage with nature while maintaining a strong sense of community. Volunteers enjoy helping keep up the area. The preserve has wellgroomed paths, and it's a great way to see the colors of each season.
