Carver County is updating its comprehensive plan, an important tool for guiding the growth of the county. The plan will outline countywide policies for a variety of areas such as land use and transportation, with the purpose of creating a unified vision for Carver County from today through 2040.

Current Status

On May 30, 2019 staff submitted Carver County’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan (plan) to the Metropolitan Council for review. Staff have since received a letter from the Metropolitan Council outlining revisions and additions which are required for the plan to be deemed complete.  The plan has been revised based on this letter, and will be brought to the County Board of Commissioners for approval to resubmit to the Metropolitan Council on October 8th, 2019. The letter from the Metropolitan Council, along with information about revisions made by staff, is below.
