Town planning, zoning laws from two statutory chapters to one

A new law aims to reduce redundancies and confusion when it comes to township planning and zoning statutes.

Sponsored by Rep. Liz Boldon (DFL-Rochester) and Sen. John Howe (R-Rockville), it repeals township planning and zoning statutes in Chapter 366 of state statute that granted townships authority to do zoning and planning. This same authority is granted in Chapter 462.

In addition to repealing township planning and zoning statutes in Chapter 366, the law provides a redirect to Chapter 462 to accommodate any townships that have citied Chapter 366 in their documents, thus providing continuity in land use management.

It is effective March 19, 2022.
