Dakota County’s Comprehensive Plan sets a clear vision of what the County should become over the next 20 years.
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. Dakota County’s draft plan was prepared and modified over a two-year period of stakeholder engagement, technical updates, County Planning Commission review, and County Board direction. It is due to the Metropolitan Council by Dec. 31, 2018.
Draft plan updated based on stakeholder comments
The draft Comprehensive Plan was released for its statutory public review and comment from April 1 to Oct. 1, 2018. The draft plan has been modified based on comments received from public, cities, organizations and agencies during the six-month review period.
Read comments received during the six-month draft plan review.
