A Great Place to Develop

Hugo is home to blend of urban and rural landscapes. Rapid residential growth since 2000 has allowed the City to develop at a thoughtful pace. Business is booming across Hugo's thriving commercial and industrial districts, which enjoy low tax rates and connections to amenities such as sewer, water and rail. Hugo's strong planning and development expertise have given it high regard as an emerging Twin Cities Metro community. As a result, new industrial and business projects along with a Downtown Redevelopment Plan are underway. The City is welcoming new businesses to join and serve its growing community, and will guide developers through the approval process quickly and efficiently.  The opportunity is prime to stake your claim in this vibrant and growing community!
