Survey ranks Rosemount the seventh best place to raise a family

Something called Nerd Wallet has declared Rosemount the seventh best place in Minnesota to raise a family.

Using criteria such as population growth, school quality and affordability, the company ranked the city between Prior Lake at No. 6 and St. Michael at No. 8. Waconia topped the list, followed by North Mankato, Sartell, Woodbury and Stillwater. Savage and Shakopee rounded out the top 10. 

In choosing Rosemount, the survey specifically cited Rosemount’s growth — by 50 percent from 2000 to 2010 — and quality schools.
