Practical Information for Residents? Check out the FAQs


Small town tradition survives in Robbinsdale's typical main street businesses and family-friendly atmosphere. Affordable, quality, single family homes are the predominant land use. Abutting the northwest corner of Minneapolis, the City provides a quiet haven from the bustle of city life. A regional medical center, convenient shopping, lake vistas, a variety of recreation activities, all only 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. Or stay in town and Celebrate Whiz Bang Days the second weekend in July.

Information about 42nd west of the railroad tracks (watermain break)
All the water came from a failure in the water feed from Minneapolis to Crystal & New Hope. There was no impact to utility service for Robbinsdale homes and businesses.  The water and sand carried with it also got into the sanitary sewer and caused blockage causing sanitary sewers to back up nearby. The sanitary sewers were reopened as part of the initial work on site. The water pipe should be able to be repaired quickly, reconstructing the street will take longer--no time frame yet.

If your home in Robbinsdale has been affected by this watermain break, call the City's main phone number at 763-537-4534.

Quad Communities Recoginzed as Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Communities
Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Community is a designation whish shows that the communities are connecting resources to military families. Channel 12 explains more about the effort in this video.

Sump Pump Water should NOT go into Sink Drains
Important: Sump pump and wet basement water should not be put into inside drains. Too much storm water mixed with the normal laundry/sink/toilet water can overwhelm the system and cause backups. Sump Pumps are required to be pumped outside of the house onto the yard and storm sewer sytem. More details coming in the July utility bills.

High Water = No Wake
With heavy rain the lake elevation gets high with all the storm sewers emptying into the lakes and even small waves can impact private property.   Be sure to read and observe the slow, no-wake regulation on City Lakes.
