State law requires that all cities and counties in the Twin Cities seven-county metropolitan area adopt a Comprehensive Plan. These plans provide a road map for communities looking 20 years into the future. In May 2016, Burnsville began work on a major update of its existing Comprehensive Plan to look at growth and development into the year 2040.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
Comprehensive Plans identify a community’s long-term vision, goals, policies, strategies and options for guiding future changes and investments. In Burnsville, this plan will address future land use, economic development, transportation, city services/facilities, natural resources, housing, neighborhoods and youth initiatives.
What is the Process?
In general, the process involves:
A full review and evaluation of the current comprehensive plan
Identification of specific issues that need updating
In-depth exploration of the City’s primary areas of focus
Community review and input opportunities
A comprehensive update of the plan
Plan review and adoption by the Burnsville’s Planning Commission and City Council
The City has hired planning consultants Hoisington Koegler Group Inc. to assist with the process. A Review Panel, which consists of Planning Commissioners and other community members representing residents, businesses, youth, community services and visitors is also involved.
2040 Comprehensive Plan Project Schedule
The City will be focusing on the following areas in its 2040 Comprehensive Plan update:
Minnesota River Quadrant (MRQ)
View Potential Land Use Change Areas
East Cliff Road Aging Industrial Areas
View Potential Improvements/Amenities
Heart of the City
View Potential Redevelopment Plan
Orange Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Station Areas
Burnsville 2040 Plan Looks into the Future.
How Can I Get Involved?
Currently, the City and planning consultants are in the review and research stage – collecting data, updating existing plan maps, meeting with stakeholders and making site visits to focus areas. This review and evaluation is expected to last through the summer. The process will then shift to include more public engagement.
Submit questions or feedback.
Also, watch for Comprehensive Plan "pop up" opportunities at events this year, and be sure to follow the City on
for real-time information.
