The city is currently in the process of updating the 2030 Comprehensive Plan and residents will have opportunities to provide input throughout the upcoming months as the 2040 Comprehensive Plan is finalized.
The City Council appointed a resident task force to oversee the update of the Comprehensive Plan that will be known as the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. This task force consisted of current as well as former members of the Planning Commission, Economic Development Commission, Parks and Natural Resources Commission, Business Development Committee and several residents at-large. The task force facilitated an extensive public participation process focusing on guiding principles during the summer of 2016, technical land use and infrastructure components in the spring of 2017, and the drafting of chapters in late 2017 and 2018.

The task force has completed its review and update of the Comprehensive Plan and forwarded the draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan to the City Council for review at a July 25, 2018 public hearing. Following the public hearing, the draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan will then be forwarded to adjacent communities, watershed districts, school districts, the DNR and MNDOT for comment. The City expects this comment process to conclude prior to January 31, 2019 after which the City will submit the draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan to the Metropolitan Council. The Metropolitan Council will then review the draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan to ensure it meets all the Metropolitan Land Planning Act requirements, conforms to regional systems, is consistent with the 2040 Regional Development Framework and is compatible with the plans of adjacent jurisdictions. Ultimately, the City expects to put the 2040 Comprehensive Plan into effect in mid-2019.
