Glencoe is a thriving community of almost 6,000 residents, located about an hour west of the Twin Cities on Highway 212. The City, offering a great mix of strong businesses, excellent schools, extensive parks, and great people, is poised to grow. Residents and leaders want to proactively work together to orient that growth so it meets residents' ideas and aspirations for their community.

CDG led a team of consultants to develop the City of Glencoe's new Comprehensive Plan (the City's first), which will be the principal organizing tool to communicate and achieve the community's vision.

Working with an active an engaged group of citizens, elected officials and City Staff, the CDG team developed a blueprint for the City's future.

Work on the Plan started in October 2020 and concluded in April 2022; the plan was officially adopted by the City on July 18, 2022.
