Comprehensive Plan and Map

Comprehensive Plan Map

Comprehensive Plan- Future Land Use Map


The future land use map consists of two components: 1) a map that identifies the City’s land use designations; and 2) a legend that describes the intent of each designation.  The purpose of the land use map is to serve as a basis for the City’s zoning decisions, thereby fulfilling a requirement of the North Dakota Century Code (NDCC) to plan for future growth.  The map supplements the City’s Comprehensive Plan document by providing information about the city’s intent to both developer’s and property owners.

Comprehensive Plan


The purpose of a Comprehensive Plan is to establish a reliable source of information about future development and to serve as a basis for both land use amendments and zoning code amendments.  Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and the zoning code require a public hearing process that includes review by both the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Commission.  This procedure is established in the plan.  Each chapter of the Comprehensive Plan is listed below and can be accessed by clicking on the chapter name:
