Comprehensive Plan
OUR VICTORIA TOMORROW ...a plan for 2040
The City of Victoria is currently completing an update to the Comprehensive Plan for the community, addressing the planning for Victoria through 2040. The Comprehensive Plan will outline the vision of the community for the future, and will serve as a guiding document for city staff, elected leaders, and the broader community to use on a day to day basis, as well as inform planning for specific projects and initiatives in the community.

Per Minnesota Statute 473.858 Subd. 2 and Metropolitan Council guidelines, the City has released the most recent City of Victoria 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update, Our Victoria Tomorrow, for jurisdictional review by neighboring cities and other government agencies. This review period may extend as long as six months. View the summary document.

There are three final public hearings/meetings prior to formal adoption of the Comprehensive Plan.
  • Planning Commission on November 20 at 6:30 pm
  • City Council on November 26 at 6:30 pm
  • City Council on December 10 at 6:30 pm

Questions about the draft document should be addressed to Pat Smith.

Specifically, the Comprehensive Plan will provide guidance regarding the following topics and aspects of the operation of the City and the community:

  • Land Use
  • Parks, Recreation, Trails, and Open Space
  • Community Facilities
  • Housing
  • Economic Development
  • Transportation
  • Water Resources and other Infrastructure
  • Implementation

A consultant team led by Hoisington Koegler Group is working with City staff, and the Steering Committee, to guide the completion of the Comprehensive Plan update. The consultant team, along with City staff, will gather input concerning the various elements of the Comprehensive Plan through steering committee and community meetings, a series of focus group meetings with various stakeholders, and input provided at community events, through community surveys, and through online input (including this website, and the Social Pinpoint website). The consultant team will work with the community to help identify the Vision for Victoria through the 2040 and to review and consider various alternative concepts and strategies for the elements of the Comprehensive Plan. Input from the community will inform the creation of preferred and final versions of the various elements of the Comprehensive Plan. The City of Victoria anticipates finalizing the elements of the Comprehensive Plan by the second quarter of 2018.

A Steering Committee has been formed to guide and advise the planning process.  Visit Steering Committee Page (click link) to see what the committee is up to.

The Comprehensive Plan will help Victoria protect and preserve public and private investments, guide land use and ongoing development, make the most efficient use of public resources, and promote overall quality of life.

We invite everyone in the Victoria community to get involved in the Comprehensive Plan effort and make your voice heard! Stay tuned for updates regarding upcoming meetings and events for the Comprehensive Plan effort!
