Comprehensive Plan      

Navigate Prior Lake is a city lead movement to update our 2030 Comprehensive Plan.

Navigate Prior Lake is about a collaborative community approach to set course for smooth sailing through 2040 and beyond. A Comprehensive Plan is our course guide that defines our vision and goals for both public and private investment in long-term development and redevelopment of the community. The plan is intended to identify needs for utilities, housing, parks and open space, shape land use and transportation patterns, and conserve natural resources.

The City of Prior Lake Comprehensive Plan will address the following:

  • Housing needs
  • Future land use
  • Economic opportunities
  • The lakes and our other natural resources
  • Transportation
  • Parks and trails
  • Public and individual utilities

Why Update the Comprehensive Plan Now?

State law requires all municipalities in the 7-county metropolitan area update their Comprehensive Plans at least every 10 years. Local plans must align with the Metropolitan Council’s regional system plans related to highways, transit, airports, wastewater services, parks and open space. An updated plan must be submitted for Metropolitan Council review by December 31, 2018.
