Northwest Area Planning Initiatives


The City of Inver Grove Heights' plans have anticipated the development of the Northwest area for many years. In anticipation of this development, the city has conducted a series of studies and plans and adopted new land use, storm water and financial regulations.

It is expected that the full development of the Northwest area will take 15 to 20 years and will include a variety of land uses, including:

  • Single-family residential
  • Multiple-family residential
  • Commercial retail, offices and industrial uses

Argenta Small Area Plan

IGH is conducting a small area study for the land bounded by Highway 55 on the south, Argenta Trail on the east, 70th Street on the north, and the Eagan border to the west. This area has partially developed over the last decade and seen significant changes with improvements to Argenta Trail and Highway 55. The area is also part of the Northwest Area of Inver Grove Heights that has seen gradual development since the beginning of the 2000s and extensive land use and infrastructure planning over the last two decades.
