Lifestyle

Since the 20th century, Burnsville's look is that of a suburban bedroom community of typical suburban sprawl fashion. It is a fully developed third ring suburb of Minneapolis, about 20-30 minutes distant by highway. Early growth of Burnsville was due to Interstate 35W's completion in the 1960s which came earlier than most of the metro highways. As a result there are large pockets of housing from that decade, defining much of the housing stock as ramblers and split-levels. Burnsville through the 1990s filled in the last of its available land with upscale housing stock and apartment complexes. As a result, the city has a diverse range of housing types and thus families and income levels. The median household income from the 2000 census is $57,965 and the city accepts low-income residencies.

Heart of the City project

Burnsville leads the Twin Cities region in new smart growth policies which are being implemented in nearly every suburb. Smart growth defies traditional suburban sprawl bedroom communities and instead moves towards defining community identity with sustainable design. Burnsville's Heart of the City project hopes to create an attractive, vibrant, pedestrian friendly neighborhood setting with economically viable local businesses. The redevelopment encompasses 54 acres (219,000 m²) centrally located in Burnsville, a few miles from the Minnesota River. This has already replaced traditional suburban elements such as former gas stations and drive-thru services with four-story mixed-use condominium buildings reminiscent of Minneapolis neighborhoods and recalling Main Street architecture. Centerpiece to the project is Nicollet Commons Park located on Nicollet Avenue which has already drawn thousands of residents to enjoy the first phases of the project already completed. A lifestyle center, the next generation shopping mall being constructed across the metro area, will be added nearby mixing car focused access with pedestrian up-to-sidewalk stores. Municipal workers Mike Flavin, Casey Nelson and Vince Workman spent the summer of 2005 working with city officials on maintenance of the Heart of the City. Most of the time they worked under the supervision of Brian Ulvin. A few of their accomplishments included renovation of the Ames sculpture, hanging and watering over two-hundred flower baskets daily, and making the film "Goddess Moon, Father Sky, Hollow Soul."
