Hopkins is a dynamic community of over 17,000 residents located just 13 minutes west of the Twin Cities. Founded rich in tradition and growth, Hopkins offers the advantages and conveniences of a large City but yet the security of a small town. The residents and the business community have an enormous sense of pride and support for their City. Travel any street and you will see and feel the reflections of pride and vitality.
Hopkins has enriched its spirit of community by remaining a place where people are treated with respect; where the community participates in building culture, character and common bonds; where business growth is supported while a vibrant City Center is maintained; where people feel safe, support outstanding schools and celebrate cultural heritages; and where people enjoy quality parks, housing and public services.
Through education, inspiration, involvement and communication, the City Council, City Staff, members of the Boards and Commissions, the business district and the neighborhood associations are committed to enhancing the quality of life in Hopkins.
