For New Residents
Welcome to Eagan!
We’re glad you have chosen Eagan as your new home.
Eagan provides its citizens a sense of community and is filled with a combination of lush wooded areas, beautiful rolling hills, lakes and ponds, as well as lovely residential areas and well planned commercial and industrial areas. Eagan is a young and dynamic community with a long history. Established as a Township in 1860, it was named for the first Town Board Supervisor, Patrick Eagan. Eagan was incorporated as a City in 1974 with a population of 17,000, and has now grown to approximately 66,000 residents, making it the ninth largest community in the state. Eagan has four times been named in the top 20 “Best Places to Live” in the U.S. by MONEY Magazine.
Your new community is a popular location, in part because of its convenient access to employment, the airport, freeways and other Twin Cities conveniences. The City is committed to maintaining strict land use planning, preserving open space and park land and sustaining the quality of life our residents have come to expect and enjoy.
The New Resident Guide
is designed to familiarize you with the services and facilities you will likely use as you settle into your new home. It is patterned after the City Web site.
On behalf of the Eagan City Council, welcome to Eagan! We hope you will find new and enriching experiences here.
With best wishes,
Mayor Mike Maguire
