Comprehensive Plan

A Renewed Vision - The Comprehensive Plan


The Comprehensive Plan is an official document adopted by the County Board as a policy guide to decisions about the physical development of the county. The plan sets broad policies to direct the future growth and development in land use, transportation, parks, housing, natural resources, historic resources, and public facilities.

Metropolitan Council Requirements


Minnesota statutes requires local governmental units to develop a comprehensive plan, fiscal devices and official controls that conform to the Metropolitan Policy Plans. The Metropolitan Council is charged with the responsibility to develop policy plans for water resource management, park and open space, transportation and transit, and aviation.
