Shoreview is a suburban community located ten miles northwest of Saint Paul and is home to 27,000 residents. It is 12.2 square miles in area and almost built out, consisting primarily of residential uses. It has 11 lakes and 1,400 acres of parkland and open space. Shoreview offers a variety of housing choices and is easily accessible to downtown Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
Shoreview used funds from an Active Community Planning grant to incorporate active-living principles into its Comprehensive Plan, specifically as they relate to land-use, transportation, and parks and open space. The City worked with SEH consulting to identify breaks in the existing trail system and opportunities for new trails.
