Mission Statement

The City of Lakeville provides the foundation for healthy neighborhoods and successful businesses by investing in comprehensive planning, high-quality and efficient services, citizen participation, and effective partnerships.

Envision Lakeville

In 2013 the Lakeville City Council initiated a citywide visioning process called Envision Lakeville (PDF). The purpose of the visioning process was to bring people together to share opinions and ideas about what they "envision" for the future of Lakeville. The process included input from residential, commercial, and industrial property owners as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations and a task force of community members appointed by the City Council.

Vision Statement: "We envision a thriving, multi‐generational community where families, friends, and neighbors connect, live, learn, work and play. Great schools; a diverse local economy; exceptional parks, trails, and recreational opportunities; vibrant social and cultural institutions; safe neighborhoods; and responsive and cost‐ effective public services - together create a place we are proud to call home."

2017 Legislative Priorities

As the 2017 Minnesota State Legislature gets underway, there will be many legislative initiatives and bills considered. The adoption of legislative priorities is intended to portray the City's positions on a variety of issues and to communicate to Lakeville’s residents, legislators, county and state officials, lobbying organizations and other interested parties Lakeville’s position on a variety of significant legislative topics. The policies are divided into four categories including transportation, local control/municipal revenue and taxation, economic development and housing. The document also includes an appendix that lists other initiatives the City is monitoring during the legislative session.

Review a copy of the City of Lakeville 2017 Legislative Priorities (PDF) as adopted at the January 17, 2017 City Council meeting.  If you have any questions regarding the legislative priorities, contact the City of Lakeville Administration Department at 952-985-4403.
