Below is some general information about Prior Lake:

Prior Lake is a city 20 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis seated next to Savage and Shakopee in Scott County in the U.S. state of Minnesota. Surrounding the shores of Lower and Upper Prior Lake, the city lies south of the Minnesota River in an area known as South of the River and establishes the urban fringe of the south-southwest portion of Minneapolis-St. Paul, the sixteenth largest metropolitan area in the United States. The population of Prior Lake was 22,796 at the 2010 census. Prior Lake was first incorporated as a village in 1891. Prior Lake is one of the oldest cities in the south metro area. The city’s modern rapid growth is due in part to the ease of access for commuters, the rest of the region, via the upgraded State Highway 13.

Prior Lake is governed by a mayor and four council members serving at large. The city Mayor and Council are elected non-partisan. The city mayor is Mike Myser who won election in 2009 after the previous mayor, Jack Haugen, decided not to run for reelection. The council members are Warren Erickson, Ken Hedberg, Richard Keeney, and Vanessa Soukup. The city is run by a City Manager, Frank Boyles. The city is in Minnesota Legislative District 35A. The district 35 Senator is Claire Robling. The district 35A Representative is Michael Beard. Prior Lake is located in Minnesota’s 2nd congressional district, represented by John Kline, a Republican.

Portions of the Shakopee Mdwakanton Sioux Community tribal lands are within the boundary of the City of Prior Lake as annexed in 1972. The SMSC is a federally recognized Indian tribe formally organized under federal reservation status in 1969. The overlap of a Minnesota Statutory City with federally recognized Indian Tribal lands resulted in litigation to clarify the boundary and voting rights. In a 1984 United States District Court ruling, the court affirmed that the municipal boundary of the City of Prior Lake did include the tribal lands in question. The Court further clarified that the tribal residents were thus residents of the City of Prior Lake entitled to vote in municipal elections and to emergency police, fire, and rescue services. The Court ordered the City to provide emergency services on an equal basis as all other residents even though the federal trust status of the tribal lands deprives the City of the authority to tax the tribal lands to fund such services. In recent years, the SMSC has paid the City of Prior Lake for the cost of those emergency services on a voluntary basis.

The Prior Lake American is the main city newspaper. The Savage Pacer is also common in Prior Lake. The Star Tribune South Edition also offers some coverage. Following the 1999 Columbine High School Massacre, journalist Elinor Burkett spent a year following students and teachers in Prior Lake High School. She chose Prior Lake as her subject because it was found to be virtually identical to Columbine demographically. She documented her experience in the book Another Planet: A Year in the Life of a Suburban High School. The Mystic Showroom at the Mystic Lake Casino and Hotel in Prior Lake is an entertainment venue thet frequently features A-list musical and comedy performers.

Prior Lake is made up of two sections, Upper Prior Lake and Lower Prior Lake. The area of each is 354 and 810 acres respectively. Upper prior Lake flows Northerly, draining into the larger, Lower prior Lake via a navigable channel that runs under Eagle Creek Avenue Scott County Highway 21. Prior Lake is an extremely popular lake for fishing and water sports. Prior Lake is also popular with snowmobilers and can be accessed using the Scott County Snowmobile Trail and other designated trails in the winter. On April 10, 2009, zebra mussel shells were discovered on the shore of Lower Prior Lake. On April 14, the DNR confirmed that the Zebra Mussels were also in Upper Prior Lake. The eastern portion of Spring Lake along Scott County Road 12 is also located within the City of Prior Lake. Spring Lake, with 290 acres, but being a few minutes further out from the metro area offers similar recreational opportunities as Upper Prior Lake with a more rural character and less traffic. Spring Lake, being several feet higher in elevation, flows north, into Upper Prior Lake via a non-navigable spillway and culvert under County Road 12.
