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.
Due to the warm weather, the ice rinks and warming houses at Loveland and Lions Parks are temporarily closed.
The Newport Transit Station, located on Maxwell Avenue across from Newport-St. Paul Cold Storage, is now open. The transit station offers express bus service between Newport and downtown St. Paul and features an indoor waiting area and large parking lot for commuters. Route 364 provides three express trips each weekday morning and afternoon. Click here to view the schedule.
The Newport Park Board and Newport on the Move will be hosting the 3rd Annual Winter Family Fun Night on Saturday, February 7th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Lions Park Skating Rink, behind the fire house at 20th St and 2nd Ave in Newport.
All are invited to enjoy an evening of skating, fun winter games, music, a bonfire, and free refreshments. No skates? No problem! Activities for skaters and non-skaters alike.

Annual dog licenses are currently on sale at City Hall for $10. Licenses purchased through January 31, 2015 will be $10 per license. The fee will increase to $20 per license after this date. Newport residents must renew licenses for their dogs annually. An updated rabies vaccination certificate is required at the time of purchasing the dog license. Requiring a dog license helps to ensure that all dogs in the city are vaccinated for rabies and serves as a resourceful tool to police officers in returning your dog, should they pick him or her up from running at large in the city.
Additionally, any household that has four or more dogs or cats must obtain a kennel license. A kennel license is approved by the City Council and expires December 31 of each year. The fee for a kennel license is $50.
