Local Government Development Review
The Local Government Development Guide is an aid to local government partners, developers and others involved in the development process. The guide provides important information on submittal of plats, site plans, preliminary sketch plans, environmental documents, comprehensive plan amendments and development-related traffic studies. It's intended to provide users a better understanding of Ramsey County’s development review process. It also includes a general checklist of requested and recommended items to submit in order to make the development review process more effective and efficient for all of those involved.
Ramsey County’s objective in the development review process is based on statutory requirements (MN Statute, section 505.03), adhering to directives and to further increase awareness and communication with stakeholders while also protecting the safety, operations and integrity of the existing and planned transportation system within Ramsey County.
