The East subregion consists of communities east of Saint Paul in Washington County, stretching to the St. Croix River and the Wisconsin border, to the areas east of White Bear Lake in the north and the Mississippi River and Dakota County border to the south. Communities in this area range from older and newer suburban developments, growing suburban edge communities, rural townships, and small rural town centers. Density is generally higher closer to the city of Saint Paul to the west and near the older community of Stillwater. Growing suburban communities are gaining people, businesses, and seeing an associated increase in density.
