Mendota Heights is a high quality, family-oriented residential community, with the feel of the country but with all of the amenities of urban life. It is centrally located in the metropolitan area and the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers form a natural green belt around it, allowing the community to maintain a quiet, private way of life.
A part of Dakota County, Mendota Heights has preserved an abundance of parks and open spaces, encourages spacious residential development, and has planned for diversified business areas. Excellent schools and a well-educated populace complement the traditional but progressive character of the City. Civic pride and aesthetic excellence are high priorities in Mendota Heights.
