Comprehensive Plan 2040

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A comprehensive plan (or “Comp Plan”) sets the vision for what the City wants to be in the future and lays out actions to get there. The plan is comprised of several elements, including:

  • Land use
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Parks, trails and open space
  • Surface water
  • Water supply
  • Sanitary sewer

Although the plan looks 20 years into the future, state law requires that cities update their comprehensive plans every ten years.

Jordan 2040 Comprehensive Plan Draft

As required by law, Jordan is updating its Comprehensive Plan. The 2040 update will be prepared in accordance with the Metropolitan Council’s Land Planning Act and the Metropolitan Development Guide and plans.

During the preparation of the plan, community input will be sought prior to review and adoption by the city’s planning commission and city council. The plan can be accessed through the links below. Email comments to lmeyers@jordanmn.gov.
