Land Use Plan & Metropolitan Planning Organization

Land Use Plan

City of East Grand Forks planning is guided by its 2045 Land Use Plan Update (PDF). This land use element guides residential density, commercial and industrial activity, and zoning within the East Grand Forks planning area.

A land use decision-making process has been in place since 1965 when the City Council adopted the first zoning ordinance. The City Code includes all current city ordinances.

The 2045 Land Use Plan Update with 2010 Census data is available online for your review. Please click on link above to view the updated plan. This Plan Update was adopted into the City's Comprehensive Plan by the City Council in March of 2016.
