Dakota County’s Comprehensive Plan sets a clear vision of what the County should become over the next 20 years. It was developed through an extensive public participation process with residents, businesses, non-profits, cities, schools and other agencies.
The plan addresses key areas that influence our quality of life and that are affected by changing variables, such as population.
The Metropolitan Council requires all metropolitan counties, cities and townships to have a comprehensive plan, and determines the basic information that plans must cover. Plans are fully updated every 10 years and are amended as needed.
