Our mission is to serve as a resource for creating and guiding the City of Jordan, its neighborhoods, historic downtown, and the industrial and commercial components into a sustainable future.
The Planning and Zoning Department is tasked with administering Zoning Ordinances (Chapter 154 of the City Code). This includes reviewing all proposals and applications for compliance, processing applications for zoning relief, and providing zoning information in order to maintain compliance for all properties within the City of Jordan. The Planning and Zoning Department reviews all building applications for building permits, zoning and text amendments, conditional use permits, interim use permits, sign permits, variance applications, design review, site plan review, and planned unit development applications.
Additionally, the Planning and Zoning Department is charged with implementing Jordan’s Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2009. Through this document, Planning Staff have updated the Zoning Code and Zoning Map to comply with the city’s priorities as outlined by Minnesota State Statute. The Comprehensive Plan is currently in the process of being reviewed and updated to represent Jordan’s priorities into the future.

Downtown Jordan Master Vision
The City of Jordan embarked on a planning effort that resulted in the Downtown Master Vision, a document that examines the area as it is today and what stakeholders envision the downtown to look like in the future. The plan takes a look at ways to revitalize downtown Jordan, promotes long-term sustainable business success in the area and provides an implementation plan to follow. As a 20-year vision, this document focuses on areas to preserve, enhance and redevelop including: creating a “backyard” for downtown, having flexible central park space, providing off-street pedestrian connections and a variety of market-supported redevelopment options, and strategically located public parking.
