Plymouth, 10 miles northwest of Minneapolis, maintained its rural charac­ter well into the 1970s, much longer than most Twin Cities suburbs, though today agriculture is a thing of the past. With a diverse economic base and a population of over 62,000, Plymouth supplies the Twin Cities with more than 48,000 jobs. lnterstate-494, highways 169 and 55, and county roads 6 and 9 run through the city, making it attractive to corpo­rations. Major industries include manufacturing and distributing, printing, telecommunications and computer-related industries. Major shopping is minutes away at Ridgedale. Plymouth's stated goal is to provide its residents with a strong eco­nomic base, preserve the natural environment, and foster respect for indi­viduals. Resources have been committed to preserving open space, and the city now has 70 miles of trails and about 40 parks, ranging from small neighborhood playgrounds to the large community playing fields by Parker's Lake. Year-round recreation programs for all ages have something for everyone, from ballroom dance to community garden plots to rock climbing. The Plymouth Life Time Recreation Center, 763-509- 0909, includes an ice arena, pool complex, and fitness center. Plymouth Creek Center, 763-509-5280, on 34th Avenue between Plymouth Boulevard and Fembrook Lane, has an inflatable dome field house, a walk­ing-jogging track, and a ballroom.

The city works hard to make this a supportive environment for all ages. McGruff Trucks, driven by public works and park maintenance workers, offer safe havens for children who find themselves in need of assistance. The police department sells bike helmets at cost and the fire department sends their fire engines into the parks to do safety education. For seniors, Plymouth Towne Square has 97 units with subsidized rent for low-income residents. For first time home buyers, Plymouth participates in programs offered by the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, 763-509-5413.

Plymouth has been involved in a planned development process since 1973, which has created pockets of industrial/commercial development along main roads, and a wide range of available housing, both owner­occupied and rental. The neighborhoods of Alterra and Pintall off Vicksburg Lane are townhome areas; Fox Run between Vicksburg and Dunkirk contains recently built, two-story wood and brick, single-fam­ily houses with triple garages. Older neighborhoods contain a mix of ram­blers, bungalows, 1970s split-levels, and two-story houses with double garages-these on more rolling and wooded lots than new develop­ments. Many of the new neighborhoods look like gated communities­without the gate.

The city's newsletter, The Plymouth News, and the "City Recreation Booklet" are mailed to all residents and businesses, keeping them informed of upcoming events and elections. Cable Channel 37 broadcasts city announcements and provides gavel-to-gavel coverage of city council and Planning Commission meetings. Cable 12 News also covers local gov­ernment. Local cable service is being upgraded in order to provide more channel choices, better reception and two-way high-speed internet access and digital telephone service.

People like to live in Plymouth. It's safe. It has many resources for fam­ilies, and most day to day necessities and services are available only a few minutes' drive away. It seems surprising, then, that it does not have is its own schools. Instead, it is served by four highly-regarded school districts: Wayzata #284, Robbinsdale #281, Osseo #279, and Hopkins #270 (see Child Care and Schools). Web Site: www.ci.plymouth.mn.us
