In efforts to maintain a well-designed community, the City is undergoing a comprehensive look at Burnsville's current Zoning Ordinance and exploring ways to be more flexible and user-friendly for our residents and businesses. Zoning covers permitted uses, building setbacks to property lines, size and height requirements, parking rules and landscaping standards.
The Burnsville zoning code involves complex and technical information paired with extensive research. Under state law and city ordinance, the Planning Commission provides recommendations on zoning and subdivision matters. For this reason, we are relying on the experience of our Planning Commission and City Staff in partnership with the experts at WSB & Associates, Inc. to take the lead on this portion and will be reviewing and providing recommendations to Title 10 (Zoning) and Title 11 (Subdivision).
This initiative kicked off in April 2021 and is ongoing.
