NOTICE: As of Tuesday, February 18, all City of Rochester Planning and Zoning services will be fulfilled at the new Development Services & Infrastructure Center located at 4001 West River Parkway NW, Rochester, MN 55901.

Planning & Zoning helps to shape our city as a whole, providing design, development, and preservation services to make Rochester one of America's most livable cities.

Responsible for neighborhood and comprehensive planning, the City of Rochester's Planning & Zoning teammates review development requests including zoning changes, subdivisions, development plans, conditional use permits, and annexations. 

Recent Changes to Planning & Zoning

As of July 1, 2019, the City of Rochester and Olmsted County now process planning and zoning requests separately. 

Wondering where to go to get your request processed? We've created a road map to help you navigate the recent changes and find the location you need to visit to process your request.

Still have questions? We're happy to help. Give us a call in Community Development at 507.328.2950 or email us at
