Development and construction
Minnetonka is a diverse landscape of woodlands, wetlands, and sloped topography. Minnetonka residents value these resources on their own land and in their neighborhoods; however, these resources are often most notably impacted during development or construction projects. The natural resource division reviews building, grading, and development applications for compliance with the city’s natural resource regulations. Property owners can help protect the natural resources in their neighborhoods with careful planning and the installation and maintenance of proper protection measures through project completion. Whether you are building a small addition, constructing a retaining wall, or proposing to subdivide your land, you can use the resources below to help plan your project with natural resources in mind and protect the resources we all value.
