History: Minnesota Statutes, chapter 473, requires cities, counties and townships in the seven-county metropolitan region to prepare a comprehensive plan and update that plan at least every 10 years. The region’s cities, counties and townships are in the process of preparing comprehensive plans, which must be submitted to the Metropolitan Council for review by December 31, 2018.
Hennepin County’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan will serve as an overarching policy framework to ensure that the county meets its stated mission to enhance the health, safety and quality of life of residents and communities in a respectful, efficient and fiscally responsible way.
Prior to submission of a local comprehensive plan for Metropolitan Council review, a public hearing must be held to provide the opportunity for comment on the draft comprehensive plan.
Current Request: Establish a public hearing on the draft Hennepin County 2040 Comprehensive Plan during the Public Works Committee on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. or as soon thereafter as practicable.
Impact/Outcomes: Fulfill the requirement that a public hearing be held on the draft Hennepin County 2040 Comprehensive Plan prior to submission of the plan to the Metropolitan Council for review.
