Zoning Code Update

In efforts to maintain a well-designed community, the City is including it’s existing Zoning Ordinance in this process 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).
