Connections - A Weekly Update from the City of Hopkins

Services Move to Fire Station January 2

City Hall services will be moving to the Fire Station on January 2 as the City prepares for the renovation of City Hall.

Limited meeting space will be available throughout the renovation and some staff will be located at other facilities. Residents are asked to call ahead and make appointments for non-routine items.

The utility billing drop box will be moved to the red drop box on the south side of the fire
station starting in January.

The January 2 City Council meeting will be held in the council chambers at City Hall. After January 3, City Council, Park Board, and Planning and Zoning Commission meetings will be held at the Fire Station. Meetings will not be broadcast on the City's cable channel until the renovation is complete. 

More information about the project is available here.

ArtSpace Market Study Meeting is January 8

The results are in! Join the Hopkins City Council on Tuesday, January 8, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Hopkins Fire Station (101 17th Ave S, Hopkins) to hear about the conclusions of the Artspace market study. The study tested the market support for an artist live/work  housing development in Hopkins, as well as the interest in shared creative space, performing art space and private studios. The report findings will be presented and next steps will be discussed. Study results will be available on the City’s website after the meeting.  

Be Prepared for Snow in Hopkins 

Move your Car
When any amount of snowfall occurs, residents should move vehicles off city streets and parking lots. If the snowfall is two inches or more, a snow emergency may be declared and vehicles must be moved immediately to avoid being towed. Call the Snow Line at 952-939-1399 for snow emergency announcements.

Shovel the Sidewalk
As mandated by City ordinance, Hopkins residents are responsible for removing snow and ice from public sidewalks within 12 hours of a snowfall.

Clear the Fire Hydrants
While the City tries to clean snow from fire hydrants as soon as possible after a snow, we could use your help. Please adopt a nearby fire hydrant and keep it clear of snow through the winter. Hydrants should be cleared five feet on each side to give the Fire Department the quickest and best access.
