2040 Comprehensive Plan

The Planning Commission held a public hearing on Monday, November 19th at the Orono City Hall, 2750 Kelley Parkway.  

The Planning Commission reviewed the chapters of the Plan below.  These chapters show changes made to the document from the version original distributed for Public Comment in April, 2018.  The City received comments from residents, adjacent communities, and the Metropolitan Council.  

After the public hearing, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the Plan.  The City Council will review the Plan at their meeting on December 10, 2018.
