The Comprehensive Plan states the City’s current policy position on a number of issues including land use, housing, transportation, parks and utilities. It describes how Hopkins is likely to change and helps guide recommendations made by Hopkins boards and commissions to the City Council. Additionally, it is used by property owners and developers when considering the future use of property.
Every ten years, all Twin Cities area communities are required by State law to update their comprehensive plans. Hopkins comprehensive plan was last updated in 2009 and will guide the City’s land use regulations and policies for the next 10 to 20 years.
In the summer of 2016, the City began the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan. Find out more and get involved to help Cultivate Hopkins.
