Spotlight on St. Michael, Minnesota

By
Real Estate Agent with Sabinske & Associates, Inc. (Albertville, St. Michael)

I live in St. Michael, Minnesota, but I work primarily in Albertville, Minnesota  Next week, I'll spotlight Albertvile since the two cities share many amenities and a school system. 

Today the spotlight is on St. Michael.  As of the census of 2000, there were 9,099 people in St. Michael.  Imagine...one more birth recorded!  There were 3,058 housing units in the City. The majority of the people are under 44 with 78.6 percent and 16% from 45 to 64.  The median age is 31.  For an old established town, it has a very young population. 

But, that is about to change, St. Michael is undergoing some major renovations to its "Town Center". 

There is construction on the new library, senior citizen center and city hall.  Drive by the Marketplace Food Center and you will see all the girders and ground work being installed.   The City received a $400,000 library grant from the state department of Education. And, the City has been setting aside funds for the past ten years to pay for the new City Hall. 

There are several clinics in St. Michael, the new library, parks, open space and a new senior housing development that will add to the diversity of the town. 

The school system is shared with Albertville as St. Michael-Albertville Independent School District #885.  It consists of nine schools or academies with the High School, St. Michael-Albertville High School (Grades 9-12), St. Michael-Albertville Middle School East (Grades 5-8), St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West (Grades 5-8), St. Michael Elementary School (Grades 1-4), Fieldstone Elementary School (Grades 1-4), Big Woods Elementary School (Grades 1-4), and Albertville Primary School (Kindergarten). The two academies are the Page Academy (Middle School alternative) and the Knights' Academy (High School alternative). There is also a private Catholic School for grades K-6 in St. Michael.

A new high school was opened for this school year and the dedication took place on September 20, 2009.   The previous high school was converted into a new middle school (Middle School West). The current middle school has been renamed to Middle School East. 

Entertainment can be found in many local restaurants and bars, but we also have a great new theatre located at the edge of town with SXHD, its a Cinemagic theatre and has first run features with great prices.  With 15 screens, you are sure to find something to see.  Plus, make a night of it with food and drink (wine, beer or soft drinks)! 

St. Michael is moving to the future, what was once a sleepy little town on the edge of the gateway between the Twin Cities and the St. Cloud area is fast becoming a destination location on its own.  With excellent education opportunities, a renovated city center, and housing for all incomes, it won't be called sleepy anytime again. 

St. Michael also has a fan page on Facebook.  If you would like, you can nominate St. Michael for Google Internet Service here:

And, when you want to buy, be sure to call me!  I am nearly a native!! We want you to come and stay!
