Most components of your comprehensive plan identify what your community intends to do over the next 30 years. The implementation portion of your plan lays out how your community intends to do it and when infrastructure investments will occur. The implementation plan needs to describe the local ordinances, policies, public programs, and capital improvement plans for local systems that ensure implementation of your comprehensive plan and protection of public infrastructure.
Official controls are locally adopted ordinances, policies, design guidelines, fiscal tools, and other regulations that direct, guide, and assist in development decisions in your community and help to implement your plan. Your official controls may also need to be updated to remove conflict with new policy direction as outlined in MN Statute 473.865.
