What's New with the Comprehensive Plan Update

Planning for Resilient Cities

The Alliance for Sustainability is hosting a workshop where staff, commission members, and community volunteers from the cities in Ramsey County can learn together in small groups about:

* Example comprehensive plan goals/strategies
* New Mapping and Planning Tools
* Implementation Resources

The workshop will be in the Roseville Skating Center Rose Room on Thursday, June 1. The staff-oriented session begins at 1:00 pm, and the session oriented toward commissioners and community members begins at 6:00 pm.

A "walkabout" is a community engagement activity that happens in a specific part of the community to learn from people who regularly find themselves in that area, because they live or work nearby, because they travel through on foot, bicycle, or transit, or because they take advantage of recreational, cultural, or commercial opportunities in the area. Feedback will be solicited on a range of issues beyond land use, like positive or negative neighborhood identity, connectivity or barriers to other parts of the community, as well as places that people either actively avoid or that people go out of their way to be.

Please check back here on the days of the events in case a walkabout has to be cancelled due to weather.

Online Survey

Please consider participating in a short online survey that will prompt you for answers to questions about what Roseville is doing well, what it could be doing better, and what you'd like to see in the near (and more distant) future. Click here to complete the survey.

Meeting In A Box

Meeting in a box is a kit (though not literally a box) of simple materials that you can borrow to facilitate your own community engagement mini-event. There's a large map to draw on, markers and pens, sticker-dots and post-its, and a facilitation guide that gives you, the host, some suggestions for how to get people talking and sharing their ideas. Check out a kit and engage your neighbors, book club, faith community, fantasy sports league, scouting troop, or whomever else you can think of. If you know you want one, or if you want to know more about one, click here to email us about the meeting in a box.

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.
