Mountain Iron Comprehensive Plan Update (2016)
Background
In May 2008, the City of Mountain Iron adopted its 2008 Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan was developed by the Mountain Iron Planning and Zoning Commission with assistance from the Mountain Iron Economic Development Authority. The plan was prepared and written by the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission (ARDC).

The City of Mountain Iron will be working with ARDC to update its 2008 Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of the plan update is to review the plan's progress, determine current issues, opportunities, and needs within the community, and ensure the comprehensive plan satisfies the elements suggested in the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board's (IRRRB) Comprehensive Plan Grant Program.

Additonally, ARDC has initiated a pilot project to incorporate a health component with comprehensive plans. This added component will focus on food access, health, and quality of life. Mountain Iron was selected as a pilot community for this project. For more information on health in comprehensive planning, please click here!
