Big Lake Township

A Place to Grow


Sherburne County Comprehensive Plan Survey

Sherburne County is in the process of updating its Comprehensive Land Use Plan.  

The Comprehensive Land Use Plan is a community-driven document that sets a clear vision for how the County will grow over the next 20 years.  It was updated in 2011.  We anticipate this update will be completed in the summer of 2023.  For additional information on Sherburne County and our Comprehensive Land Use Plan update, please visit the Project’s Website Updating Comprehensive Land Use Plan
