What's New with the Comprehensive Plan Update

Community Workshop 2

Wednesday, November 8, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., City Hall
Thursday, November 9, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., City Hall

Join us as the City’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update moves to the next stage. We’re hosting Roseville 2040 - Community Workshop 2 on November 8 and 9 in the council chambers at City Hall. Residents are encouraged to attend whichever session is more convenient for them.

Phase 1 of the Comprehensive Plan update process is now complete. It centered on engaging the community to develop a shared vision for the future of Roseville and began with a community kickoff event in March. Since then, the City has conducted an online survey, held several focus group discussions, led “walkabouts” through selected city neighborhoods, posted intercept boards in various locations to gather input, and made community-led Meetings-In-A Box available for residents to host their own feedback sessions.

Phase 2 will focus on incorporating Phase 1 feedback into the actual chapter updates of the comprehensive plan. Residents will have the opportunity to further refine the plan’s direction in key topic areas such as land use, housing and neighborhoods, parks, transportation and economic development.

During Community Workshop 2, residents will learn how their input is being incorporated, how various plan chapters fit together to form a cohesive comprehensive plan update, and what future engagement opportunities will be available to community members. The workshop will also highlight the draft review process that will take place in 2018 leading up to the plan being finalized and submitted to the Met Council.

We hope to you at the workshop on either November 8 or 9. Your insights are important as we work toward updating our community’s guiding plan together!

Input Received in the Community Engagement Process

All of the feedback received from first phase of community engagement around the update of Roseville's comprehensive plan can be found here.

This is only "new" because Phase 1 is now complete. Phase 1 of the community engagement focused on envisioning the future of Roseville to establish and confirm the goals that will become the foundation of the updated comprehensive plan. This process involved a "kick-off" community meeting, intercept boards installed in various places around the city, community-led Meetings-In-A Box, a conversation with Roseville Area Middle School's Future Cities team, an online survey, focus group discussions, walkabouts, and the emails sent by community members.

Phase 2 of the community engagement effort will begin soon, and it will center on the process of incorporating the Phase 1 feedback into the updated comprehensive plan. Watch this page for updates about when and where to get involved in the upcoming opportunities to help guide the next stage of updating Roseville's comprehensive plan.

Updating the Parks & Recreation Chapter of the Comprehensive Plan

The Parks and Recreation Commission, along with Parks Department staff and a team of consultants, is responsible for updating the Parks and Recreation chapter of the Comprehensive Plan.

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 role does the Comp Plan have 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 has begun 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.
