Looking to build or develop in Shakopee? Here is information you need to know:
Choosing a Site
Our Economic Development Division can assist with finding an appropriate site for your project.
- Zoning map and code
- Contact the Planning & Zoning Division to discuss with you whether your project fits the city’s planning goals and zoning guidelines, as outlined in the 2030 Comprehensive Plan.
Meeting Design Standards
The Engineering Division will assist you in ensuring your project meets the city’s design criteria for new construction for street and utility improvements. City engineers review projects and set conditions for roads and utilities to ensure projects meet these design standards.
Developing your Site

Larger projects may also be invited to present preliminary plans at the city’s Development Review Committee (DRC) meetings. These are comprised of representatives from various city departments. The DRC typically meets Wednesday mornings. Please contact Planning Division staff to get on the agenda.
