The Maplewood planning division champions the values of our community by guiding development and protecting the environment through studies and zoning controls.
The City of Maplewood planning division is primarily responsible for the review and management of new developments, subdivisions and redevelopment.
The division coordinates the preparation of a comprehensive plan that lays out the City’s long-range plans for:
- Land use
- Parks and open space
- Sanitary sewer
- Economic development
The division also provides information and assistance to residents, businesses and developers.
Within the context of the comprehensive plan, the division administers the city’s zoning and subdivision ordinances, which govern how property can be used and divided.
The division makes recommendations to the Planning Commission and Maplewood City Council on all land use issues.
The division also acts as staff liaison to the Planning Commission, the Community Design Review Board and the Housing and Redevelopment Authority – preparing its reports and minutes.
If you need zoning, land use, and/or flood map information for a parcel please call (651)249-2300 and ask for a planner.
