The Alternative Urban Areawide Review (AUAR) is a state-required process for developments of a certain size and scale. The Center Village Vision Plan (adopted by the City in 2019) identified a future redevelopment scenario for this area of Burnsville with a mix of apartments, hotels, commercial and non-commercial office, medical, and institutional uses. The AUAR process is a tool to analyze cumulative impacts of anticipated development scenarios within a given geographic area to inform local planning and zoning decisions based on environmental analysis.
The Center Village redevelopment area is located in the area north and south of County Road 42 generally between C.R. 5 and I-35W.
