Greenway Master Plans

Dakota County, MN

Since 2009, Hoisington Koegler Group has been working with Dakota County on ground-breaking master plans for its county-wide greenway system. In 2011, Minnesota River and North Creek Greenway Master Plans were completed, followed by master plans for Vermillion Highlands Greenway, Rosemount Greenway, Lake Marion-South Creek, and Mendota-Lebanon Greenways.

The projects represent the first regionally-designated corridor master plans in the Twin Cities to intentionally combine the functions of water quality, habitat, linear recreation and non-motorized transportation. The master plans are rooted in the directives outlined in the Dakota County Greenway Guidebook, developed by HKGi in 2009. The projects exemplify HKGi's long-standing approach to infusing ecological functions into community planning and infrastructure investments.
