Abstract

Description

Having recently completed updates to its comprehensive plan, the City of Prior Lake wanted to integrate sustainability concerns into its plan implementation process and regulatory framework. Graduate students in a capstone workshop in urban planning at the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs taught by Dr. Carissa Schively Slotterback conducted a comprehensive audit of the city's zoning code and proposed ordinance updates, new regulations, and implementation tools in the areas of renewable energy, conservation development, water quality protection, tree preservation, and transportation. The graduate students and city staff created a report focused on plan implementation that will serve to guide revisions to the city's zoning code to address sustainability. The report serves as a model for other communities interested in establishing innovative policies for addressing sustainability.
