by Joe Perske Sartell Mayor

Welcome to Sartell!

As mayor of the City of Sartell and on behalf of its more than 15,000 residents, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors. Native Americans, followed by settlers, merchants and industrialists, found this area on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi to be a great place to live. That feeling has carried on for centuries and is alive today. Whether you are here on a visit, are a native of the area or you are moving into Sartell to make your new home, I’m sure you will find the city an exciting and enjoyable place to be. Sartell has experienced rapid growth in the past two decades, yet keeps the friendly atmosphere of a neighborhood community. The local Sartell-St. Stephen School District has a reputation as one of the finest school systems in the state. It offers top-notch academics, fine arts, competitive athletics and many extended program opportunities for people of all ages. City

This resource guide is published bi-annually by Von Meyer Publishing Inc., publishers of Sartell’s official newspaper, the Sartell Newsleader.

parks and an ever-expanding trail system provide recreation all year ‘round. Many youth organizations and volunteer groups offer a wide variety of opportunities, including athletics, gardening, fishing, fitness, learning and socializing. The Sartell Chamber of Commerce, with more than 160 members, is committed to promoting and maintaining economic growth in the city and sponsors several key community building events throughout the year. Memorial Day 2012 will be remembered as one of the most horrific days in history for the City of Sartell. The tragic explosion and fire that day at the Verso paper mill brought the close to the iconic industry that had been the livelihood of the community for more than a century. In 2014, the city remains optimistic and committed to the potential redevelopment of that site along the Mississippi River. Sartell continues to be the local leader as “the city of choice” for residential housing starts and commercial development. Major transportation projects recently completed and now underway will improve traffic flow and enhance economic development.

Many exciting recreational- and community-centered initiatives have made great progress in the city during the past year. Pinecone Central Park, on a vast tract of land the city purchased, finally opened in spring 2013 with tournaments at its four baseball diamonds. Other amenities at that park are underway, including trails, picnic areas and a dog park. A new shelter is being built to replace the old one at Watab Park. The long-planned Sauk River Regional Park is closer to becoming a reality now that the city has a purchase agreement on that scenic wooded land in south Sartell. Planning committees are busy working for a community-resource facility, including the possibility of a senior center and a community library. Again, whether you are here for a day or have moved here for a lifetime, I invite you to get out and enjoy the City of Sartell. Just try one of our restaurants, play in one of the parks, do some shopping or just take a break down by the river. I hope to see you there. More information is easily available on our city website at or by viewing Channel 19 on local cable television.
