The end of another decade has come and these milestones create an opportunity to see what has changed in the last 10 years. In Blaine, much has changed.
There are many more people living in Blaine than 10 years ago. With nearly 3,000 new single family homes, hundreds of new apartment units, and several new senior housing projects Blaine’s population grew by approximately 18 percent over the last decade. Blaine was in the top 10 in the metro area suburbs for both new residential permits and new units each year.
Blaine has certainly seen an influx in young families and two new elementary schools have been built as enrollment levels increased. At the same time Blaine’s population also aged considerably. In Blaine 23 percent of households now have at least one person who is 65 or older, back in 2010 only 8 percent of Blaine’s population was over 65.
New parks have been built, including the Lexington Athletic Complex and Blaine Wetland Sanctuary. The National Sports Center, Four Seasons Curling Club at Fogerty Arena, and the TPC of the Twin Cities have all hosted major international events.
