Development and Land Use Applications

This page includes development projects and land use applications submitted to the City. The review process from the time of an application through the time of approval can take anywhere from a few months to a few years to gain City Council approval. The review process includes staff review, Planning Commission review, City Council review, and a public hearing. Final approval of any application resides within the authority of the City Council. Questions regarding potential future developments can be directed to City Hall by calling 651-459-5677. 

Several items are typical in all review processes including:
  • The proposed use of the site and how it impacts adjacent properties
  • The overall impact on the community
  • Parking (outdoor and covered)
  • Stormwater Management
  • Municipal services (water, sewer, and emergency)
  • Traffic impacts (including pedestrian traffic)
  • Impact on potential future development
  • Timelines and expectations of the site upon project completion
