2040 Comprehensive Plan

Woodbury Comprehensive Plan Cover PageAll cities and counties within the seven-county metropolitan area are required to adopt a document called a comprehensive plan indicating the programs, physical improvements and development strategies that would be implemented to comply with the regional plan adopted by the Metropolitan Council. The City of Woodbury adopted its first Comprehensive Plan in 1982, and adopted its current 2040 Comprehensive Plan in August 2019.

The 2040 Comprehensive Plan includes policies, goals and calculations of land use needs for the city based upon growth projections for population, households and employment. The 2040 Comprehensive Plan identifies the general areas in the community where commercial, residential, industrial and open space land uses will be allowed and provides plans, objectives and policies indicating how the growth areas will be provided with city services including roads, sewer and water utilities, and parks and open spaces. The 2040 Comprehensive Plan provides a vision and approach for the future growth and development of the city's parks and public spaces.
