Planning - Orderly Annexation Area
Joint Planning
In 2010 the City and Township of St. Joseph reviewed the process for land use applications and development in the Orderly Annexation Area (OAA).  As a result of the discussion, the City, Township and Stearns County entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to create a new regulatory board entitled the Joint Planning Board.  The Joint Planning Board was created and is the final authority in all land use matters in the OAA, with the exception of rezoning. 

The majority of the property located within the OAA is zoned as Urban Expansion (UE) which is considered a transitional zoning district.  The property is anticipated to be annexed into the City at some point in the future so it is important to overlay the infrastructure to manage future utility expansion.
