I love Burnsville 2019From the City of Burnsville's Facebook Page, July 2019.

THANK YOU to the more than 800 people who responded to our recent “I Love Burnsville because ___________.” community survey. Between the survey, engagement at recent events and personal interviews/meetings – more than 1,400 people provided feedback about what makes Burnsville, “Burnsville.”

A quick glimpse at responses showed the most common “favorite thing about Burnsville” was the City’s many parks, green space and greater natural environment – all within close proximity to the Twin Cities and urban amenities. Do you agree? Another top response was the affordability of living here.

The City will be using this feedback to help shape the future image and messaging of Burnsville, with a goal of attracting new businesses and residents to the community. Look for more opportunities and information in the coming months.
