What’s next for Roseville? Roseville residents and businesses are invited to learn about plans for Roseville’s future at “Roseville 2040 - Community Workshop 2” on November 8 and 9.
Throughout 2017, the City of Roseville has been gathering input from residents and businesses about the 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update, which is required every 10 years by the Metropolitan Council. The City will review the update process on Wednesday, November 8, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and Thursday, November 9, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Roseville City Hall, 2660 Civic Center Drive. Residents are encouraged to attend whichever session is more convenient for them.Phase 1 began with a community kickoff in March 2017 and centered on engaging the community to develop a shared vision for the future of Roseville. Since then, the City has conducted an online survey, held several focus groups, led “walkabouts” through selected neighborhoods, posted intercept boards in various locations to gather input, and made community-led Meetings-In-a-Box available for residents to host their own feedback sessions.Phase 2 will focus on incorporating Phase 1 feedback into the actual chapter updates of the comprehensive plan. Residents will have additional opportunities to refine the plan’s direction in key topic areas such as land use, housing and neighborhoods, parks, transportation and economic development.During the Community Workshop 2, residents will learn how their input is being incorporated, how various plan chapters fit together to form a cohesive comprehensive plan update, and what future engagement opportunities will be available to community members. The workshop will also highlight the draft review process that will take place in 2018, leading up to the plan being finalized and submitted to the Met Council.Residents are invited to attend either workshop on November 8 or 9, and there will be other opportunities to get involved.
