2040 Comprehensive Plan


The Comprehensive Planning Process

The City of Waconia, like all municipalities in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, is required by the Metropolitan Land Use Planning Act to prepare a Comprehensive Plan and land use controls that are consistent with planned, orderly and staged development, Metropolitan System Plans and the Regional Blueprint.

The City Council, Planning Commission, Park Board, and City staff have worked on the 2040 Comprehensive Plan for the past few years. The final draft was approved by the Waconia City Council on March 18 and was sent to the Metropolitan Council for approval on March 30th. Until the plan is formally approved by the Metropolitan Council and adopted by the City of Waconia, which we anticipate to happen in the Fall of 2019, the City will continue to work under the 2030 Comprehensive Plan.
