St Joseph, WI InformationThe tiny village of St. Joseph is located in St. Croix County, near Wisconsin?s western border. Pastoral and rural are both words that describe it well. The small town has a wealth of natural resources, farming lands and delightful homesteads, some of them dating back to the town's founding in the 1860s. Like many other small villages in St. Croix County, St. Joseph has grown dramatically over the past decade, due in large part to the expansion of the Twin Cities metro area. The town's reaction has been to welcome the changes that add vitality and life to the area while managing the growth to retain the charm and character that make the small town such a special and friendly place.
St. Joseph WI is a small community with a population of just under 3,500 as of 2006. Located on the banks of the St. Croix River, the town counts among its blessing the scenic beauty of the winding waterway, the rugged majesty of the river bluffs and the woodlands and rolling fields of the local farms. All of these natural resources provide the background for a thriving town with an active, healthy outdoor lifestyle that includes hiking, swimming, fishing, boating, hunting, climbing and skiing.
The village is committed to providing as many amenities as possible to its residents without sacrificing the scenic beauty and natural splendors that add so much to its quality of life. To that end, its Comprehensive Plan for the next twenty years includes an overview of needed services and amenities, and a plan for providing them while preserving the surrounding wetlands, bluffs and farmlands. The town?s location just twenty minutes from the Twin Cities metro area is another blessing, providing easy access to the shopping, cultural, travel and business opportunities of a major metropolitan area. Closer to home, the city of Stillwater, MN is just across the river, and provides many services and amenities to St. Joseph residents.
The true value of the Comprehensive Plan is that it provides for carefully considered residential growth while maintaining the stunning beauty and lifestyle choices that exist in St. Joseph. The St. Joseph real estate market reflects that commitment with its mix of new home and older home construction that features single family homes on large lots, new developments with planned green space and conservation areas, road improvements to support the increased population and small commercial developments that feature small, neighborhood businesses. The upshot is a beautifully designed master plan that encourages growth while retaining the charm and atmosphere of small town living.
