Currently the City of St. Anthony, with almost 100% of its approximately 1600 acres utilized and unavailable for development, is considered to be a fully developed community. The residents of St. Anthony value their quality of life and actively pursue projects that maintain the feeling of being a "village". The City is committed to rehabilitating any area that becomes outdated or blighted. Land use and development in the Community are governed by the City's Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance as interpreted by the Planning Commission and City Council.

Despite of its unique location, being conveniently situated to the downtown areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the Village has been able to retain all of the advantages of a smaller community.
