What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A comprehensive plan is a tool for guiding the growth, redevelopment, and overall improvement of a city. For example, Roseville’s current 2030 Comprehensive Plan identifies not only a land-use plan, but also develops a broader framework to help shape the character of the community and enhance the quality of life.
What is the role of the Comp Plan in shaping Roseville's future?
The current plan aims to do the following:
- Create and sustain the elements that define Roseville’s character, heritage, and identity.
- Influence the economic health of the community by attracting new investment and guiding it to proper locations and by protecting existing investments through the promotion of strong residential neighborhoods and business districts.
- Shape the future of municipal government by identifying needed public improvements that facilitate and sustain development.
Why does the Comp Plan need to be updated?
Roseville is about to begin the process of reviewing the 2030 Comprehensive Plan and recalibrating it to ensure that it continues to reflect the community’s collective vision for its future and align with the Metropolitan Council’s plan for the region.
