2040 Comp Plan Update

The City is in the process of updating the City's current Comprehensive Plan, which was updated in 2011.  The Cottage Grove 2040 Comprehensive Plan is a long range plan that will help define and guide future growth and  development of the community.

The Planning Commission held the Public Hearing on the Draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan on Tuesday, May 29, 2018. The Commission found the proposed 2040 Comprehensive Plan update consistent with the City's future growth and provides objectives and policies that support opportunities for affordable house, life-cycle housing, park and open space, increased employment, and service oriented land uses that will continue to serve the community and future residents and businesses. The Planning Commission unanimously recommended that the City Council accept the draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan update and authorize that the document be distributed to other jurisdictions for public comment. At their meeting on August 1, 2018, the City Council unanimously approved the resolution authorizing the release and
distribution of the Draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan to neighboring jurisdictions and affected governmental units for review as required in MN Statute 473.858, Subdivision 2.
