A WARM RIVER VALLEY WELCOME

W

elcome to Savage, and thank you for diving into the 2016-2017 Savage Lifestyle Guide with us. What makes Savage such a welcoming community? Just ask the people who live, work and play here. On your journey through our lifestyle guide, you’ll see what so many people enjoy about the city, the community, the businesses and all the other amenities that make Savage not just where they live, but what makes it their home. Savage’s environmental assets include the Minnesota River, which forms the city’s northern border; the 500-acre Savage Fen Wetland Complex, which contains some of the largest calcareous fens in the state; Eagle Creek, one of the last Brown Trout streams in the metro area; and Boiling Springs, a historical landmark that used to be a popular area tourist attraction. A major industry in Savage is shipping, due to the community’s location on the Minnesota River. Private facilities operate along the banks of the river to form the Ports of Savage. The community also offers a large retail base, which includes grocery stores, a variety of restaurants, retail stores, ser vice shops and, of course, locally-owned businesses. Recreational opportunities are provided through 23 city

parks, a regional park and hundreds of miles of sidewalks and trails. The area is ripe with beauty, and Savage residents know all the best ways to take advantage of the views and opportunities to be in nature. Three school districts serve Savage: Prior Lake-Savage A rea , Burns ville- Eagan-Savage an d S hakop ee . The community has one high school, one middle school and five elementary schools within its borders. This publication offers a directory of information and resources used by Savage area businesses and residents, especially those who are new to this area. The Lifestyle Guide is a compilation of important information — a single source for lists of services, names, telephone numbers and email addresses. We hope you keep it handy and use it often in your search for fun and fulfillment in the Minnesota River Valley. Our apologies in advance for omissions or for changes that occur after publication. Please notify us of information that needs to be updated so it can be kept current throughout the year. If you would like additional copies of this publication, call our Circulation Department at 952-345-6682. Send updated information for the Lifestyle Guide to Amanda McKnight at amcknight@swpub.com.

FUN IS NEVER FAR T

here’s more to Savage than meets the eye. Unique attractions and hidden gems throughout the city appeal to both residents and visitors. Savage’s extensive park land and open space is possibly one of its greatest features. Savage is home to 304 acres of citymanaged park lands and more than 2,400 acres of state- and county-managed park space. Its nearly two dozen parks serve as a great place to meet up with friends, play a game of kickball or softball, or host a gathering. The parks also provide plenty of opportunities for fishing, biking, walking your dog, sightseeing or simply lounging around. “As a mom, I really like the parks,” said Savage resident Erin Certain. Certain is a mother of two and enjoys taking her kids to McColl Pond Environmental Learning Center as well as McCann Park because of its proximity to her home. “We can walk there and it’s big. Not only is there the play area but there’s the running room with the field,” she said. One of Savage’s biggest attractions is the annual Dan Patch Days community festival, held at Community Park, which runs for four days in June and features live bands, food trucks, beer and wine tasting, games, inflatables and a parade. Most other weekends you can find live music at Neisen’s Sports Bar and Grill and the Dan Patch American Legion in downtown Savage. Another unique attraction downtown is the historic Savage Depot, currently home to a restaurant called Flavor at the Depot, it’s a popular place to gather for a cup of

coffee and a muffin. Another park that draws visitors from all over is MurphyHanrehan Park Reserve, which is 2,400 acres and operated by Three Rivers Park District. With its hilly terrain and unique landscape it has earned a reputation as one of the top trails in Twin Cities area for mountain biking and annually serves as a host site for The Dirt Cup: Mountain Bike Sprint Series. Looking for indoor activities? The Savage Library hosts events on an almost-daily basis, and it is home to the Savage Senior Club, the Savage Arts Council and the Heritage Room, which features a museum of historical artifacts related to Savage. Just outside Savage, in neighboring cities, you can try your luck at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel or Little Six Casino, both operated by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community; muster up some courage and hop on a wild ride at Valleyfair amusement park; or bet on horse races at Canterbury Park.

ATTRACTIONS ANNUAL FESTIVAL Dan Patch Days is an annual festival held at Community Park in Savage, right along County Rd. 27 (between County Rd. 42 and McColl Drive), during the last weekend in June. Dan Patch was the “greatest harness horse in the history of the two-wheel sulky.� Dan Patch was born April 29, 1896, in Oxford Indiana, but was purchased in 1902 by Minneapolis businessman Marion W. Savage for the then fabulous price of $60,000. Dan Patch electrified the turf world with his record of 1:55 for the mile to set a new world mark for pacers, and had some 93,000 people gathered that day at the Minnesota State Fair grounds to witness the event. Dan Patch Days is the most anticipated family-friendly event of the year, with food vendors, games, eating contests, sporting events, a parade, fireworks and of course great musical entertainment.

SOMETHING FOR EVERY PALATE W

hatever you’re craving, chances are that you’ll be able to find it in Savage with its wide variety of grocers, restaurants and specialty markets. Looking for fresh produce? Stop by the St. Paul Farmers Market, which sets up shop in downtown Savage and draws large crowds throughout the summer months. “People come from all over,” said Jerry Young, a downtown business owner. “If someone had a count it’d be really interesting to see.” It’s open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Sunday from June until late October, in the Town Square parking lot, north of 123rd Street. It offers a wide variety of fresh produce, flowers and artisan products. “I get flowers for the office and flowers for my wife and we’ll pick up some things like onions and potatoes. I think it’s phenomenal,” Young said. “And the pricing is so spectacular.” Several restaurants and grocery stores have opened, or are opening in the coming year, creating even more options for residents. One of the new grocery stores is Fresh Thyme, Farmers Market which is a specialty retailer focusing on valuepriced fresh, healthy, natural and organic offerings. Another coming soon is Iowa-based Hy-Vee, which offers great takeout options. New restaurants range from locally owned to franchise restaurants, so there’s something for every craving.

The Savage Fire Department hosts an annual pancake breakfast as part of Dan Patch Days. During their latest event, they served between 1,400 and 1,500 people in 4.5 hours at the Dakota Avenue Fire Station.

If you’re looking for ethnic food markets Savage has several, including the Asian Direct Oriental Food Market, Super Mercado La Loma and Swagatham India Market, and the Halal market in neighboring Burnsville provides additional options. Next door, Prior Lake has a famous bakery called Edelweiss in their downtown. Craving coffee? Savage residents have a choice between Caribou Coffee, Starbucks and Flavor at the Depot. For Young, he likes frequenting the restaurants in the downtown area including the Dan Patch American Legion, El Loro, as well as going to Culver’s with his grandkids. He said he also stops by the historic Savage Depot, home of Flavor at the Depot, on a daily basis to grab a bite to eat. “I’m there every day,” he said. “I walk across the street and get soup or something, and coffee in the morning, and a blueberry muffin.”

SAVAGE CITY CAMPUS IS A ONE-STOP-SHOP W

hether you’re looking to mail a letter, check out a book, get your dog licensed or attend a city council or chamber of commerce meeting, the Savage City Campus is your one-stop-shop. According to City Administrator Barry Stock, at one point Savage was only one square mile. However, in the 1970s the city expanded its borders by annexing Glendale Township to align with the Metropolitan Council’s regional planning. “The elected officials in place at that time knew that Savage was going to grow and the city was going to outgrow the buildings that they had,” Stock said. At that time they purchased land on the corner of McColl Drive and Dakota Avenue and built a City Hall and U.S. Postal Office. Since then the campus has grown right along with Savage’s population, and now is also home to the police department, Savage Chamber of Commerce, the Savage Public Library, and one of the city’s two fire stations. Since it was erected several decades ago, there have been two additions to City Hall, which is home for city council meetings and various city commission work sessions, it also houses the offices for various city departments and multiple meeting rooms for public groups to reserve. The city of Savage is governed by a city council consisting of four at-large members and the mayor who are elected to staggered four-year terms. There are also residents who make up

Did you know? The City of Savage conducts a bi-annual survey of its residents, giving them the opportunity to rate the quality of life in the city, as well as the community’s amenities, service delivery, and their satisfaction with local government. The most recent survey was conducted in Spring 2016.

a variety of city commissions, such as the planning commission and the economic development commission. Regionally, the city is in Scott County, which is governed by a five-member board of commissioners. All of Savage is included in Scott County District 5. At the state level its representatives are in the Minnesota House District 56A and Senate District 56, and on the national level it’s part of Minnesota’s Second Congressional District. Savage’s children typically attend school in one of three districts. Depending on where they live, most either attend Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools (District 719), or the BurnsvilleEagan-Savage School District (District 191). A small faction of Savage kids attend the Shakopee School District (District 720). Savage is also home to a charter school, Aspen Academy, and there is a Spanish immersion early learning center located on the Savage/Prior Lake border.

SAVAGE: A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE Toot! Toot! Yes, I am tooting the Savage horn. Every two years, the city conducts a community survey to provide residents the opportunity to rate the quality of life in Savage. I am very pleased to report that an overwhelming 91 percent of residents agree that Savage is a great place to live and raise kids. They like their neighborhoods. They feel safe. And they would recommend Savage to others. I have always said there are many reasons to live, work and play in Savage. The combination of great schools, safe neighborhoods, convenient location and rich history are among the many reasons why people are attracted to Savage. But what people don’t often think about are all the other aspects that make our city a livable, attractive place where people want to be. Savage has an abundance of parks and recreation offerings with 22 parks, one regional park and over 30 miles of paved and soft surface trails. From nature to athletics, the parks within Savage offer something for everyone. And it is good to see so many people using them. Eighty-eight percent of survey respondents said they used the park system in the last year, and 87 percent rated our parks good or excellent. Savage residents also value and desire a strong sense of community. Fortunately, Savage has many amenities that already exist which bring people together and help build community. One of our premier community spaces is the McColl Pond Environmental Learning and Event Center (ELC) at Savage Community Park. Each year, thousands of friends, families and neighbors gather here for free summer concerts on the patio,

or weddings, family reunions and community get-togethers like the Wine and Craft Beer tasting. This past year, an estimated 50,000 people came to the Savage Sports Center to participate in or watch a sporting event or attend a community event like the Home and Garden Show. The Savage Library is another vibrant community space that not only offers a variety of free programs for children and adults, but is also home to the Heritage Room museum, Savage Senior Club and the Savage Arts Council. And just the fact that the city encourages new housing developments to incorporate front porches and sidewalks helps build a strong sense of community and encourages neighbors to get to know each other. Savage is a growing, thriving community that just recently topped the 30,000 population milestone, yet we are still able to balance between big city conveniences and keeping a small town feel. Within just a mile or two, we have nearly everything one would need to never leave the city limits including a new Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, Hy-Vee grocery store and municipal liquor store, Lifetime Fitness and pool, and both Fairview and Allina Medical Clinics. At the same time, you can still see horses in a pasture and cattle grazing by the water tower. At the center of our quaint, walkable downtown is the historic Savage Depot and restaurant, which is a popular gathering place for folks heading to the weekly farmers market. This winning combination is exactly why so many people who come here, stay here. Janet Williams Mayor of Savage

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED A

few years ago, Savage became the first community in Scott County to adopt “The Healthy Eating and Active Living Community” resolution. At the time it was only the third town in Minnesota to do so. Since then the Savage City Council has continued to live up to its declaration by implementing policies to promote healthy living, such as drastically shortening the list of public places in which you can use electronic cigarettes, and prohibiting smoking in public parks. It also offers plenty of amenities that can keep you active and boost your cardio. “The city provides an extensive park system which includes both neighborhood parks and an interconnected trail system,” City Administrator Barry Stock said, adding “the city also has an extensive sidewalk network.” The city’s trail system is a great for walkers, bikers, runners, cross country skiers and snowshoeing enthusiasts. Swimmers can take advantage of the pool at Lifetime Fitness for a small fee through a partnership with the city. There are also multiple fitness centers that call Savage home, from large complexes to compact gyms. Several events are held annually to promote healthy living from golf tournaments to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. The torch run offers a timed 5K time race for serious runners, followed by a more leisurely fun run for families. The Savage Parks and Recreation department also offers a variety of programs designed to keep residents active and involved throughout the year, such as summer sports camps for kids, and pickleball and bocce ball leagues for adults.

the winter months everyone is invited to open walk and jogging times at the Savage Sports Center. Even the healthiest among us get sick or hurt from time to time, fortunately, Savage has a variety of health care providers and dentists to choose from, including general practitioners, sports therapists, mental health professionals and optometrists, as well as some alternative therapy options, such as chiropractors and massages therapists. Nearby hospitals include St. Francis Medical Center in Shakopee and Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville. “We have good coverage with both Park Nicollet and Allina Clinics in town as well as close proximity to Burnsville,” Stock said. This year the Allina Emergency Medical Services Eagle Valley Base renewed its lease and upgraded its facility, ensuring that there will be emergency responders located right here in Savage for several years to come.

TAKING IT EASY HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY A

sk around and you’ll find that there is a wide variety of opportunities for leisure within Savage. From biking to shopping, fishing to skiing, residents have a multitude of options to choose from, regardless of the season. There’s no doubt that Savage has plenty of assets, but perhaps its greatest is its parks and trails, which include 22 city-managed parks and one regional park. In total, over one-third of Savage is park land and open space. “It is clear that residents of Savage love their parks,” said Parks and Recreation Manager Greg Boatman. Based on the results of Savage’s 2016 bi-annual community survey, 88 percent of respondents indicated that they visited a city park. It’s anticipated that in the next 10 to 15 years Savage will be fully developed, and Boatman said the Parks and Rec Department is currently using an upcoming study’s results to plan for future needs. “By planning now, we hope to achieve a sustainable park system which meets the ever-changing recreation needs of our city,” he said. Community Park is an example of a park that has continued to evolve to meet the wants and needs of the residents. It is both one of the largest and one of the most popular parks, and annually hosts Dan Patch Days in June. It is home to softball fields, a

The Savage Sports Center is also located in Community Park and is available year round. During the fall, winter and spring the dome is raised making it a great place to partake in a game of flag football, perfect your soccer skills or golf swing, or simply meet up with friends for a walk around the track, regardless of the season. “The Sports Center is available to the public for daily activities, facility rental for athletic practices and events, along with hosting birthday parties or other appropriate private use,” Boatman said. Another popular park, which is located in south Savage, is the Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve. Operated by Three Rivers Park District, it is largely undeveloped except for trails, which include opportunities for walkers, bikers, horses, snowmobiles and cross-country skiers. The park also contains Murphy Lake, which offers fishing opportunities for local residents. Anglers can also test the waters off the pier at McColl Pond, or can do some trout fishing in Eagle Creek, which is one of the last self-sustaining trout streams in the metro area. Still can’t find something to do? Let the city of Savage’s Parks and Recreation department take the lead, as it offers all kinds of year-round activities for kids and adults alike.

BOILING OVER WITH POTENTIAL Scott County has always been a tourist haven BY STEPHANIE HERRICK, SCHS

S

cott County is home to some of the most visited places in all of Minnesota: Valleyfair, Canterbury Park, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel, the Renaissance Festival, and more. However, long before these places were established, Scott County was already a tourist destination, thanks to the area’s natural beauty. The county’s earliest tourist attractions were health spas and resorts, which drew visitors from all over. In Jordan, guests came for the mud; specifically, to partake in a restorative mineral mud bath at Mudbaden Sulphur Springs. Mudbaden began in 1906 when founder Ole Rosendahl accidentally discovered sulphur mud on his property. Soon he was “cooking” the mud in order to treat patients. His experiments proved successful and he opened a spa,

“Rosendahl Sulphur Springs” (later known as “Mudbaden Sulphur Springs”). The spa grew; in 1912, up to 14 trains stopped daily at Mudbaden Station depot. By 1914, the spa could accommodate 200 patients. However, advances in modern medicine led to a patient decline in the 1940s and sulphur mud baths came to an end in 1952. Visitors also came to Scott Count y for the water — specifically, Prior Lake. For close to 100 years, between 1879 and the 1960s, resorts thrived on Prior Lake as commercial and recreation centers. They offered amenities such as boats, housekeeping services, ice, local farm produce for purchase, and sandy beaches. Some of the larger resorts offered extra benefits like

tennis, golf, dances, and horseback riding. The resort season began in mid-May and ran until early fall. The resorts remained popular tourist destinations until after World War II, when visitors began heading for northern Minnesota instead. Another natural wonder – Boiling Springs – also drew visitors to Scott County for a number of years. Boiling Springs is a geological rarity and historic site within Eagle Creek, located in northwest Savage. The water in the spring appears to be boiling, though it is not actually hot. Boiling Springs is an important cultural and spiritual site for the Dakota, and was the home of Eagle Head’s village in the 1830s. When the land around Boiling Springs opened for Euro-American settlement, it was purchased in 1855 by Gregor Hattenberger,

who operated a farm and grist mill there. Later, his descendants publicized the site as a tourist attraction, installing a park, benches, and picnic tables around it. For many years, visitors came to see this natural wonder in action. Though it is no longer a tourist destination, Boiling Springs is still active and continues to garner local interest. To learn more about these and other Scott County tourist attractions, past and present, visit the Scott County Historical Society’s newest exhibit, “Wish You Were Here: Tourism in Scott County.” The exhibit opened on Sept. 22, 2016 and runs through August 2018.

A GREAT PLACE TO PUT DOWN ROOTS T

here are so many reasons to live, work and play in Savage. Within the past decade Savage has made numerous “Best Of” lists, including being named among the Best Places to Live in America by Money Magazine, and among the Best Affordable Suburbs in the nation by BusinessWeek. Savage recently hit the 30,000 population milestone, and continues to grow and thrive. More than 10 new single family, townhome and apartment projects are currently underway and several new commercial developments are attracting retail and entertainment businesses that help to create a community that is livable, attractive and a place where people want to be. There is also an active religious community that calls Savage home, including several Christian churches, one non-traditional spiritual center and one Buddhist monastery. “Savage is recognized as a community where families can live well for less and enjoy top schools, low crime, quality parks and recreation facilities, and reasonable commutes,” said Savage Parks and Recreation Manager Greg Boatman. Conveniently located between two major transportation routes, Highway 169 and Interstate 35W, residents and visitors can easily check out neighboring attractions like Canterbury Park, Valley Fair and Mystic Lake. Savage is also fortunate to have a number of unique environmental amenities within its boundaries including the

S

avage has seen an economic revival over the last few years and the increased business development shows few signs of slowing. “We are seeing a resurgence of retail in our area. Empty retail space is filling quickly with a wide variety of businesses,” said President of the Savage Chamber of Commerce Anne Masis. “Savage has been recognized by several national publications as one of the top places to live, so it’s only natural that businesses are also drawn to the area.” Currently Savage has a strong mix of big-box stores and nationally known chains, as well as several locally-owned businesses. Specifically in the downtown area, you can find a variety of unique shops, selling anything from antiques to musical instruments, and baseball cards to beautiful art. On County Road 42 and you can find high-end fashion, an iconic garden center, electronics stores and a second-hand clothing shop, just to name a few. Sprinkled elsewhere throughout Savage are sporting goods stores, tobacco shops, hardware stores and auto parts stores. The closest mall is Burnsville Center, which is just minutes from the eastern Savage border. Within the next year, Savage will see the opening of nearly a dozen new businesses. These new businesses provide a variety of

goods and services, fulfilling the demands for additional grocery options, health care providers and services, veterinarian services, retail and dining options, and the list goes on. “Also, watch for a kickboxing gym, dental offices, and new daycare centers,” Masis said. Savage is also home to many large companies and manufacturers, such as Cargill, Fabcon and Continental Machines, and there are two main areas where manufacturers are located in Savage: the Eagle Creek Industrial Park off of Highway 13 South, and the Highway 13 West corridor adjacent to downtown Savage. Several businesses also benefit from the Ports of Savage, which allows companies to transport their products via the Minnesota River.

LOCAL BUSINESS THRIVING IN SAVAGE It’s been another busy year for the Savage Chamber of Commerce in 2016, and we anticipate that 2017 will be even busier. If you have driven through Savage lately, it’s likely that you’ve seen some exciting changes happening. There are new residential areas being developed, along with several new businesses opening their doors in Savage. In 2016, Savage’s population reached 30,000, which shows that Savage is a growing and thriving community and continues to be a very desirable location for families and businesses. Over the last few years, Savage has been recognized by several national publications as one of the best places to live. Our city is a great place for people to raise families, as it is reasonably priced, has low crime rates, top rated schools, great

Anne Masis park facilities, and is close to the Twin Cities. It is a great place for people to work, live and play! You may have noticed some new housing developments around town. Big Sky Estates is the development that will be phased in at the Prior Lake Aggregates site as gravel operations move south of County Road 44. Providence is the first phase of the development along County Roads 27 and 16. Several other new housing

developments continue to take shape as our population grows. If you’ve driven along County Road 42 lately, you’ve probably noticed that we are getting some new retail, as well as buildings and storefronts that have been vacant are now filling up quickly. There has been quite a buzz about two new grocery stores that have come to town. Hy-Vee will be opening their doors in the spring of 2017, and Fresh Thyme opened in August. We’ve seen a resurgence of retail in the area, especially along County Road 42. Joining the line up of our great restaurants in Savage will be Billy G’s and Noodles & Co. Several other businesses will be opening their doors along County Road 42, as well as on the corner of County Road 42 and Highway 13. Mark your calendars for Dan

Patch Days – June 22-25, 2017. The DPD Board of Directors and Committee are already hard at work planning another exceptional celebration for 2017. We highly encourage residents and businesses to get involved! For more information on sponsorship, volunteering, or getting involved, please contact the Savage Chamber at 952-894-8876. Savage continues to be a great community to do business, to live in, and to visit. We encourage you to stop by the Savage Chamber and learn how you can get your business involved and how you can connect with your community. We encourage you to shop local and support our area businesses! Anne Masis Savage Chamber of Commerce President

PLENTY OF ROOM TO RUN W

ith two off-leash dog parks, open green spaces, nearly two dozen parks, endless trails, as well as relatively mild temperatures, there’s a lot for any canine resident of Savage to be happy about. “These trails are awesome,” said Savage resident and dog owner Ericka Miller. “Being able to just walk out my door and bring my dogs for walks is pretty amazing, and there’s a couple of dog parks nearby.” One of Savage’s two off-leash dog parks is located near Highway 13 West Frontage Road and Xenwood Avenue and within walking distance from the Hamilton District and downtown residential areas. The park is free to use and consists of more than two acres of fenced-in area with a small and large dog section. The second off-leash park is located at Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve. It opened in 2015 and is three acres in size. It features a fully fenced site with double gate entrances, a water and dog wash station for spring, summer and fall, and an automated pay station. Cat owners, as well as those who live with more unusual pets benefit from living in Savage as well, since there are a plethora businesses that cater to our furry friends including veterinarians, groomers, kennel/pet-sitters and pet supply and food stores. There are also annual events that cater to pets, including DoggiePalooza, which offers a business expo, as well as contests including best trick, best dressed, Frisbee catch, and

owner/dog look-alike. During the event there is also an agility course and a police K-9 and obedience demonstrations. Carver-Scott Humane Society in Chaska, Saving the Strays in New Prague and Protecting Paws Animal Rescue in Prior Lake, all serve the Savage area with pet rescue and rehoming. 4 Paws Animal Control serves the city under contract, and Savage is also home to Pawsitive Perspectives Assistance Dogs (PawPADs), a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that provides people with disabilities exceptionally skilled assistance dogs, as well as diabetic alert dogs.

LICENSE INFORMATION 952-882-2600 Dog licenses are required and must be renewed annually. No license will be issued unless the owner can provide documentation that the dog has been vaccinated against rabies. The dog license fee is $15; $10 if spayed or neutered. Also, animals are not allowed to run at large and may be impounded if picked up. Feces left by an animal on any public or private property (other than his own) must be removed immediately. Not more than three dogs and/or three cats are allowed per household.
