The 2030 Hennepin County comprehensive plan update is a composite document combining various planning elements. These elements have been revised and updated since 1982. To date, the practice has been to maintain separate reports which contain the more specific information and the higher level of detail. The 2030 Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the County Board of Commissioners on June 28, 2011 (Resolution No. 11-0274).
As a fully urbanized county in the Twin Cities, Hennepin County is somewhat unique in that it has no land use administration authority. State statutes recognize this unique situation and require only the following elements to be summarized as part of the Hennepin County comprehensive plan:
- Wastewater Planning and Individual Sewage Treatment Systems (ISTS)
- Regional park systems (prepared by Three Rivers Regional Park District)
- Surface water management
Summaries of the county activities in each of these areas are provided in the document below. The most extensive part of the comprehensive plan concerns transportation. The complete 2030 Hennepin County Transportation Systems Plan (2030 HC-TSP) is being provided as a separate report with only a brief summary being included within this comprehensive plan document.
