2030 Comprehensive Plan
Comprehensive Plan Adoption

On September 28, 2009, the City of Arden Hills City Council approved the 2030 Comprehensive Plan update. While all cities in the seven county metropolitan area are required to update their Comprehensive Plans every ten years, it gave the City an opportunity to review our long-term vision and goals. The update process was initiated in June 2007, and through the dedication of the City’s elected officials, appointed officials, residents, businesses, and staff, the Plan was submitted on time and approved by the Metropolitan Council.

While preparing the Comprehensive Plan is a formidable task, it is only one step in the planning process. The implementation process is the next step, which requires coordination between City departments, direction from the City Council, and efforts from the various commissions and committees.

A comprehensive plan is meant to take a long-term look at the community, but it is not a static document. The City will work to implement the Comprehensive Plan over time; however, the Plan does not preclude exploring new projects, goals, policies, priorities, and strategies in the future if new opportunities or issues arise. Additionally, the policies and programs described in the Comprehensive Plan will need to be further evaluated during the budgeting process.
