Planning Commission Unanimously Recommends Comp Plan Amendment to Council for Approval

The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment containing the Village Land Use Plan.  The public hearing was well attended, with over 50 residents in the Council Chambers interested in Village planning efforts.  After hearing several resident’s comments regarding the plan, the Planning Commission directed Staff to make multiple refinements and additions to the document.  The refinements recommended by the Planning Commission will improve the document so that it better reflects the community’s vision for the Village.  After direction was given to staff regarding the changes, the Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the Comprehensive Plan Amendment to the City Council.  If authorized for distribution by the City Council, the Comprehensive Plan Amendment will be reviewed by adjacent communities and the Metropolitan Council, following the normal procedure for a major Comprehensive Plan Amendment.
