What Is a Comprehensive Plan?

A Comprehensive Plan addresses future land use, transportation, parks, economic development, housing and infrastructure. The Plan articulates the City’s future vision and is used to help guide long-term decisions by the Planning Commission and City Council. It also serves as the basis for changes in codes and regulations. Minnesota State law requires every municipality within the seven-county metropolitan area to review and, if necessary, revise its comprehensive plan every ten years. With feedback from the public, community stakeholders, City staff, elected officials, and outside government agencies, the Plan goes through about two years of revisions. Finally, the Plan is reviewed by the Metropolitan Council, who authorizes the City to adopt the plan, after ensuring statutory requirements are completed. The City Council then votes to adopt the plan.
