Attend the annual West Metro Home Remodeling Fair to gain inspiration and knowledge to help make your remodeling dreams come true!
The City of Golden Valley co-sponsors an annual free Home Remodeling Fair with the Cities of St Louis Park, Hopkins, and Minnetonka as well as the St Louis Park, Hopkins, and Minnetonka Community Education. The goal is to provide residents with ideas, information, and resources to promote improvements to the housing stock in each community.
Remodeling is on the rise in first-ring suburbs like Golden Valley, which face the challenge of retaining residents who consider moving to newer suburbs in search of larger homes with more updated features. At the same time, residents who enjoy their current neighborhoods and schools are choosing to remodel to get what they want instead of moving to a newer suburb.
The City also offers two Remodeling Planbooks that focus on issues faced by homeowners of Cape Cods, split levels, and ramblers, the housing styles most commonly found in Golden Valley. The City developed the Remodeling Planbooks in collaboration with 15 other metro area first-ring suburbs.
