While not a boom town, St. Francis has seen its share of growth over the years. An even mix of urban style residential lots and large acreage hobby farms has provided the city with a number of quality housing developments.
The St. Francis area has a variety of recreational opportunities. The Rum River provides an exceptional setting for the canoeing and fishing enthusiasts. Located within the heart of St. Francis, the Rum River North Park provides easy access to the river.

The City of St. Francis has implemented a policy to assist the snow plow drivers in finding the edge of the pavement. Wooden laths are available to interested residents at City Hall before the first snow plow event. This lath should be used to mark the edge of the pavement. Pay special attention when staking corners as they are difficult for the snow plow drivers to judge. (Special note: For safety reasons, use only wooden lath to mark the edge of the pavement, and then only drive them into the ground about 6 inches because of utility lines. The lath will break off after a couple of plowing operations, but will have served their purpose by helping to establish the curb line. Please do not use metal fence posts. They will be removed by Public Works personnel due to the safety concerns that they represent.)
