The Hidden Gem Waiting To Be Discovered

Corcoran, MNCorcoran was first populated by the Lakota people, followed by European settlers in 1855, and continues to attract people who appreciate wide open spaces. Corcoran is a picturesque community with a balance of local businesses and a mix of residential neighborhoods, rural homesteads and farms. With rolling hills, an attractive wooded countryside with wildlife enriched wetlands, the City of Corcoran maintains a rural atmosphere, nestled on the western edge of in Hennepin County, approximately 20 miles northwest of Minneapolis. With the future addition of city sewer and water in the downtown area, Corcoran commercial and industrial commerce is poised for growth. Business owners are preparing for growth and opportunity with the future changes the Corcoran Southeast Downtown District will bring. To balance the future growth, the City of Corcoran staff and City Council focus on community vision, environmental impacts, and economic responsibility, to support and guide sustainable growth in Corcoran.
