Cambridge residents and businesses owners will have an opportunity to set a course to shape and enhance the future of Cambridge.

Cambridge is currently working to identify a shared vision for the community that will take them to 2025 and create the next Comprehensive Plan.

City of Cambridge staff and City Council have worked with members of the Downtown Taskforce to bring the Minnesota Design Team (MDT) to Cambridge. With more than 24 volunteer architects, landscape architects, planners and related professionals to assist communities in developing a shared vision for a healthy future.

The Minnesota Design team has roots that date back to 1983 and typically visits two communities each spring and fall. In nearly 33 years, the Minnesota Design Team has visited more than120 communities.

MDT’s goal is to help our community’s vision while preserving Cambridge’s identity and recognizing its strengths and opportunities.

The needs in Cambridge are clear:
• Establishing a prosperous and vibrant downtown.
• Protecting resources .
• Increasing activities in our parks, trails and outdoor amenities.

This is a time to get involved in your community to come together to plan.
