CITY OF RED WING
PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Notice is hereby given that the City of Red Wing Advisory Planning Commission will hold a public hearing in the City Council Chambers at City Hall on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at 7:00 p.m., to hear and make a recommendation on the proposed Red Wing 2040 Community Plan as the adoption of the city's
comprehensive plan. The Advisory Planning Commission has led a two year process to update the city's current Comprehensive Plan. Hoisington Koegler Group, Inc. has provided professional planning expertise to the City in the
preparation of the Comprehensive Plan document in the form of Red Wing 2040 Community Plan.
Red Wing 2040 has a bold goal for our future: to be the most healthy, vibrant town in the Midwest - economically, socially, physically, and mentally. The Red Wing 2040 Community Plan is a plan for and by the people who live and work here, and it will become our roadmap to guide us into the future. More than 2,500 people played a role in the plan, and roughly 200 residents have followed the process from beginning to end as Action Team participants.
This plan has been developed around five key principles that have been interwoven throughout the plan: Sustainability, Health, Accessibility, Resiliency, and Equity. Evidence shows that thriving communities SHARE these characteristics. The Community Plan is organized around these elements: Overview and
Background - includes an introduction and background about the community and the community engagement process that was used to develop the plan; Framework Plans - involving the environment and land use; System Plans -
includes utilities; how we get around (transportation) and parks and recreation; Action Plans - includes housing, the economy, arts and culture, physical and mental health, community connections and accessible leadership, public safety, and lifelong learning; and Achieving the Vision - the final implementation chapter. There is also an online Red Wing 2040 Document Library that provides a ready resource of foundation documents that residents can use to learn more about the community and background plans.
The Final Draft of the Red Wing 2040 Community Plan may be viewed on the City Website at this link: http://www.red-wing.org/354/Red-Wing-2040 or copies may be obtained by contacting Brian C. Peterson AICP, Special Project Manager at Brian.Peterson@ci.red-wing.mn.us or by calling 651.385.3617. A copy of the Red Wing 2040 Community Plan may also be viewed at Red Wing City Hall, 315 West Fourth Street, or at the Red Wing Public Library, 225 East Avenue.
Written or oral comments to Red Wing 2040 Community Plan may be presented at this public hearing or filed with the City Clerk prior to this hearing. Each
response will be duly considered and evaluated before any formal action is taken by the Planning Commission.
The public will have the opportunity to present comments on the Advisory
Planning Commission's recommendations at a City Council meeting. The purpose of allowing comments is to provide the public with the opportunity to directly address the Council on the matter. The comment period cannot be used for the presentation of new information as all relevant information needs to be provided to the Advisory Planning Commission at the public hearing. If new information is presented to the City Council that was not considered at the public hearing of the Advisory Planning Commission, the Council may vote to send the matter back to the Advisory Planning Commission. All comments will be kept to the customary 3-minute limit. The City Council meeting to consider adoption of the Red Wing 2040 Community Plan is currently scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on February 25, 2019.
