As the City of Shakopee looks to expand to the west, the city is exploring potential future land uses in western Shakopee.
In 2015-16, the City Council conducted a study of 323 acres bounded on the north by Vierling Drive, on the west by County Road 69, on the south by County Road 78 and on the east largely by County Road 15 and the interchange at Highway 169 and County Road 15. See map [PDF].
The City Council accepted the study and approved a concept plan [PDF] with some changes at its April 19 meeting.
The Planning Commission is reviewed the preferred west-end concept plan [PDF] at its March 3 meeting.
Master Planning Area
The area is the subject of a master land use study, which will evaluate the City’s land use, transportation and infrastructure plans along Highway 169 and County Road 15. It will also consider market conditions, infrastructure feasibility and input from Jackson Township Board members and property owners regarding timing and their desired end uses of the land.
In April 2015, the City Council hired Hoisington Koegler Group Inc. (HKGI) and SRF Consulting Group to conduct the study.
