Local Planning Highlights

The Local Planning Highlights showcase communities implementing good local planning practices throughout the region The highlights cover a range of topics from successfully implementing affordable housing to modern approaches to community engagement, from new sustainability efforts to protecting natural resources in rural areas. The purpose is to gather examples of diverse and effective planning practices that demonstrate good local planning and improvements to processes and local outcomes. The highlights will discuss local planning successes, identify valuable lessons learned, and share planning work that may help other communities. Each Local Planning Highlight will feature different communities and different topics. We plan to continue adding Local Planning Highlights during the comprehensive planning process and hope you nominate your community.  The most recent highlight: Shakopee
