CITY OF NORTHFIELD Comprehensive Plan Highlights

Adopted November 17, 2008

The City of Northfield’s land use principles are statements of intent that describe the direction of future development, redevelopment, and land intensification in the community. These principles will help guide the City on how to use its limited land resources efficiently and effectively to continue to foster a high quality community with a strong economy and distinct sense of place. The land use principles should be used as a guide to help the City in evaluating future growth. Policy decisions, capital improvements, and development applications should consider the land use principles, and support their intent. If a project, program or policy does not support the principles it should be re-evaluated and made consistent with the intent of the principles. The principles reflect a variety of land use topics and themes. They focus on the quality, pattern, character and organization of development. Outlined below are the principle statements:
