Apple Valley Sustainability Master Plan

In 2010, the City of Apple Valley was in the process of developing plans for the future of the Fischer Sand and Aggregate site, a 265-acre parcel on the southern edge of the city and adjacent to downtown. The site of an aggregate mine that will be mined out between 2020 and 2030, the parcel was the largest single contiguous piece of land remaining in the city. Graduate students in a capstone workshop in urban planning at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs taught by Dr. Carissa Schively Slotterback worked with City staff and other stakeholders to create a sustainability master plan for the area to guide future development of the site. The students' final report serves as a model for other communities interested in addressing sustainability at the site level.
