Protecting the Environment Through Comprehensive Planning & Zoning Controls
The Arden Hills planning division implements the values of our community by guiding development and protecting the environment through comprehensive planning and zoning controls.

The City of Arden Hills planning division is primarily responsible for the review and management of new developments, subdivisions and redevelopment in the City. The division coordinates the preparation of a comprehensive plan that lays out the City’s long-range plans for:
  • Land use
  • Transportation
  • Parks and open space
  • Housing
  • Sanitary sewer
  • Water
  • Economic development

The division also provides information and assistance to residents, businesses, and developers regarding land use and zoning topics. Within the context of the comprehensive plan, the division administers the City’s zoning and subdivision ordinances, which govern how property can be used and divided.

The division makes recommendations to the Planning Commission and Arden Hills City Council on all land use issues. The City planner acts as a staff liaison to the Planning Commission.

If you need zoning, land use, and/or flood map information for a parcel please call 651-792-7800 and ask to speak with the Senior Planner.
