About the Community

Bloomington stretches along the north bluff of the Minnesota River
Valley above its confluence with the Mississippi River at historic
Fort Snelling.

Home to 85,000 residents, the community is conveniently
located at the intersection of I-494 and I-35W, with Twin Cities
International Airport only minutes away. Recreational opportunities abound, with parks, playfields, ski hills and trails, and golf courses.

Bloomington’s well-educated citizens support local schools, numerous service organizations and a diverse faith community.

The Mall of America attracts global visitors while national and local businesses draw regional workers to careers in hospitality, technology and manufacturing.
