Growth Area Plan

Lindström, MN

HKGi has served as Lindström’s consulting planner for the past several years, providing general planning services including development application reviews, zoning ordinance writing, revision and review, environmental reviews and a variety of special projects. One of those special projects was to create growth area plans that would provide guidance for land use, development patterns, transportation routes, open spaces, parks and infrastructure in undeveloped areas within the City and areas just outside the city limits.

Some of the key ideas contained in the plans include ideas such as creating new neighborhoods that reflect the character of original Lindström; preserving natural landscape features; planning for a well-connected roadway network that encourages walking; connecting homes with parks and trails; and providing a variety of housing types and commercial opportunities at strategic locations.
