  • What is a comprehensive plan?

    A Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for the future. It is a community vision that is intended to guide the City for the next 20 years, which will include policies that direct future growth and development. The process for creating a comprehensive plan can lead to potential strategies that will help effectively guide City leaders with making substantive and thoughtful decisions for the community.
  • When will Aspire Eden Prairie 2040 start and when will it be completed?

    The initial phases of plan development have begun. The final City Council-approved plan will be submitted to the Metropolitan Council by Dec. 31, 2018.
  • How can I get involved in the process?

That’s the situation facing suburbs along the proposed Southwest Light Rail Transit line as legislators continue their long battle over the line’s state funding.

The line has been touted by its backers as a spur to future development in the west-metro suburbs. In reality, development has already occurred — quite a bit of it.

For at least a decade, and in some cases longer, city officials and planners have guided development with the Southwest line in mind.

Thousands of apartment units have been built or are underway along the line’s route, with more in planning. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in commercial development, all with the expectation that the trains would be coming.

So what happens if they don’t?

“I think it will be a staggering setback for these communities,” said Peter McLaughlin, a Hennepin County commissioner and one of the Southwest line’s most vigorous supporters. “The essential element, their connectivity to the 21st-century economy, will be destroyed.”
