The city is beginning to update its 2030 comprehensive plan and create the 2040 comprehensive plan, and we want to hear from you! The comprehensive plan is an official document that guides the future of the City of St. Louis Park. It sets forth policies and programs that govern land use, transportation, public facilities, economic development and housing. The 2040 plan will build on the Vision 3.0 foundation and integrate it into plan elements. The plan shapes the practical goals, policies and strategies that work toward the Vision aspirations. It also includes plans for each of the city's 35 neighborhoods.
Over the next several months, city staff will continue to solicit comments for the plan during meetings with various city commissions and committees, city council work sessions and meetings with the school board. A public input survey will also be available in May for residents to submit comments. Feedback from the survey will be used in reviewing and finalizing the comprehensive plan.
It is anticipated that the draft comprehensive plan will be available online for comment in early June. In July, the draft plan will enter a six-month review period where it will be sent to surrounding communities and agencies for review. Comments and input from the community and agencies will be reviewed and considered when finalizing the comprehensive plan. After the plan has been finalized, it will be presented to the St Louis Park Planning Commission and City Council for adoption in late 2018.
November 2017 neighborhood planning workshop
Thank you to everyone who attended a workshop and shared your thoughts and ideas about the future of St. Louis Park's neighborhoods. A summary of the information collected is found in the Community Input Report.
Four neighborhood planning workshops were held during November, and 140 people participated. At each workshop, a brief St. Louis Park 2040 presentation was given, and attendees played the neighborhood planning game to discuss their neighborhood's future. Participants were asked to think about planning through the lenses of racial equity, mobility equity, income equity and age equity. Neighborhood infographics and maps were also available for review.
