WELCOME

The Carver County 2030 Comprehensive Plan is a compilation of long-range planning documents for Carver County, Minnesota looking out to the year 2030 and beyond.

The Plan and each of the Township's plan chapters were approved by the Metropolitan Council on February 24th, 2010.
The next steps in the Comprehensive Plan process will be for each township to hold a public hearing to consider adoption of their township chapter. The full plan will then be presented to the County Board for formal adoption - likely in late April.
