Over the past year, the City of Medina has been working diligently on updating our Comprehensive Plan. The Steering Committee has held 14 meetings, City Council, Planning and Park Commissioners have held meetings to review the plan, staff hosted four open houses, and public input has also been received and considered. The Executive Summary is now available for your review. The full draft of the Comprehensive Plan can be viewed at http://medinamn.us/2040-comprehensive-plan/.
The Comprehensive Plan guides the future of the City, including the location and types of growth and development in the City. The Plan also advises future policy and investments in infrastructure and services such as transportation, parks, trails, recreation and water resources.
The Comprehensive Plan anticipates 950 additional households over the next 20 years, 250 of which are required to be higher-density housing such as apartments and townhomes. This is a substantial reduction of approximately 40-50% from what the City has previously planned.
The Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a Public Hearing on the Comprehensive Plan on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall. Prior to this meeting date, the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee will review the feedback and discussions from the Open Houses and prepare a draft of the Plan.
