The comprehensive plan is the blueprint for growth and development for Inver Grove Heights to 2040. The comprehensive plan is the officially adopted long range plan that describes the community’s vision for the future. It includes a series of plans, goal, policies, and implementation strategies for a wide range of topics, including:
Land Use Plan
Environmental Protection and Natural Resources
Parks & Recreation
Water Supply Plan
Critical Area Plan
Surface Water Management
State law requires all cities in the metropolitan area to update their comprehensive plan every ten years. Even without this statutory mandate, it is important for a city to periodically review and update its plans for the future. The city is likely to develop and redevelop in some fashion over the next twenty years. The comprehensive plan will guide these developments and redevelopments and address how local and regional systems will service Inver Grove Heights.
