The City of Rogers is a prosperous and growing community in northern Hennepin County, with a population of 13,150 residents. The city has grown rapidly, almost quadrupling in size since 2000, when its population was 3,600. Its downtown area is generally characterized by auto-oriented development with disconnected buildings, large parking lots, and low walkability, though it also includes a small finer-grained district with pedestrian-scaled storefronts, sidewalk-fronting buildings and historic façades.
