In accordance with Minnesota Statute Chapter 473, every ten (10) years, the City completes an update to the Comprehensive Plan with the Metropolitan Council. The Comprehensive Plan is the City's plan for future land uses. The Plan includes assumptions on physical development throughout the community and is a vision for how the City will evolve over the next twenty (20) years. The Comprehensive Plan is an important document that helps guide public facilities, areas of preservation and development, and development of various zoning guidance. In 2008, the City completed a draft of the 2030 Comprehensive Plan.
