Redwood Falls Comprehensive Plan

Redwood Falls, MN | Public Works

Overview

ISG worked with the City and community to develop a long-term comprehensive plan.


Opportunity

With the last plan dating back to 1995, there was an incredible opportunity to present a vision for the future that aligned with the City’s historic roots and close-knit characteristics by defining long-range goals and objectives.

Solution

The City of Redwood Falls embarked on an exciting journey by creating a Comprehensive Plan that covers the years 2017-2035. The most important part of the process was having direct feedback from residents, community leaders, and other valued stakeholders, in addition to the oversight and expertise from the following acknowledged groups.

To engage the general public, ISG coordinated and conducted a public open house meeting with residents and a variety of other stakeholder groups. This meeting was followed with a community survey to further identify and refine the vision and goals for the project. Utilizing these activities, ISG helped participants define goals that would benefit the entire community in a number of key areas including economic development, housing, infrastructure, and parks and recreation.

The public input and community feedback gathered helped ISG record the long-term goals expressed by the people. Opportunities and improvements were compiled into the plan and subsequent meetings were scheduled to review and discuss the long-term objectives and potential enhancements to be considered by the City of Redwood Falls.
