Welcome to Falcon Heights, the City that Soars! Located just ten minutes from both downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis, we are the home of the Minnesota State Fair, with over two million visitors a year, and the University of Minnesota St. Paul Campus, whose wide open agriculture fields give our community a rural feel in the heart of the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
Information for new residents can be found in our New Resident Guide! You can download it or stop by City Hall for a copy.
Renters make up about 45% of Falcon Heights' total population. Whether a person rents an apartment or a home, they are essential members in our community. The Mayor and City Council, Commissions, and City Staff work together with community members to ensure that all renters feel welcome.
If you live in a single family home, tenants or property owner/manager are responsible for plowing the sidewalks. If you live in an apartment, the property owner or manager is responsible for plowing the parking lot and sidewalks. The City is not responsible for Larpenteur Avenue sidewalks.
The owner is responsible for pulling permits (plumbing, mechanical, electrical and building) for the property.
