Newport is primarily a residential community and its strength is the people who live within the city. Newport is a small river community with residential streets bordered by large trees, which wind their way along the river's edge and the blufflands. Newport's small town persona is retained within its people and its physical environment even though it is within a 15 minute commute to St. Paul and Minneapolis. With a population of 3,435, Newport continues to encourage growth and development within the community.
Newport residents and their friends are invited to participate in Minnesota Night To Unite (NTU) on Tuesday, August 4th, at Newport Lutheran Church, 900 15th Street, from 6:30 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. NTU is an evening to gather with friends and neighbors to get to know each other and promote community awareness. It is designed to heighten drug and crime prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. Activities include police and fire equipment and personnel, food, children’s games, and community organization displays.
Once again, it’s time for the City’s annual get-together celebration! This year’s festivities will take place on Sunday, August 9th, at Pioneer Memorial Park and is jam-packed with fun! Below is a schedule of events for the day:
2015 Pioneer Day buttons are now for sale at City Hall, the Library and Community Center, North Pole Restaurant, Newport Drug, John Bartl Hardware, and South Suburban Rental!

The MN DNR has been working on draft rules for management of land use and natural resources in the Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area (MRCCA) since June 2014. The DNR requested that local governments within the MRCCA provide comments on the draft rules. The City sent a letter to the DNR in September 2014 regarding the draft rules. Since September, the DNR has analyzed the comments and is currently wrapping up a final round of revisions. Click on the links below for more information on the draft rules and MRCCA. Please contact Sherri Buss, City Planner, at (651) 292-4582 / firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or questions.
Xcel Energy has contracted with KS Energy to televise sanitary sewers in cities across their service territory, including Newport. Xcel televises sewers to ensure that there is no conflict between the sanitary sewer and gas service. Most services can be viewed from the public right of way: if for some reason, Xcel needs to televise the sewer from your property, a representative from KS Energy, will make contact to set up an appointment to do so. All KS Energy employees will have identification as a contractor for Xcel Energy.
This is a very important activity to ensure the safety of all customers. If you have further questions or concerns, you may contact Jake Sedlacek, manager, community relations and economic development at (651) 458-1228 or email@example.com.
