Steering Committee to Host Community Design Session on November 14

JOIN US! The City of Brainerd and Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee will be hosting a community design session on November 14, 2018 at 617 Laurel Street in Downtown Brainerd (former Utrinkets store). Two sessions will be held in an effort to accommodate your busy schedule:

Session 1| 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Session 2| 5:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Anyone who has a passion for the future of Brainerd is encouraged to attend one of the sessions. Both sessions will be the same and we welcome you to stop in whenever it works for you. This is an open house-style event where you can come and go as you please.

The feedback gathered from the community design session will help shape the plan’s goals, policies, and action steps. Attendees will learn of feedback gathered from the community survey and your thoughts and comments are needed in these areas:

  • Complete various visioning and mapping exercises
  • Identify a set of values
  • Categorize a set of priorities for the future


Community Survey Responses are IN!

A community survey was available for public participation during the months of August and September. A total of 633 responses were collected. This survey particularly studied two aspects: livability and community character. The complete survey can be viewed here:
