Our Mission

Serving a community of diverse neighborhoods, the employees of Olmsted Township will perform in a coordinated, collaborative, ethical and fiscally responsible manner to provide greater access to services, encourage a vibrant quality of life and create a sense of confidence and connection among residents and themselves.

Comprehensive Plan

Olmsted Township is beginning to develop its Comprehensive Plan and seeks to gather community input as part of the process. The Comprehensive Plan will serve as a guiding document that assesses existing community conditions and future needs in order to provide strategic recommendations for the Township’s future. The Comprehensive will encompass all aspects of the community, from economic development and land use to transportation and infrastructure improvements, and parks and recreation enhancements.

The Comprehensive Plan process will be completed later in 2018 with several additional public engagement events being held in the upcoming Spring and Summer months.

Community Survey – We Need Your Input!

Township residents are highly encouraged to complete a short Community Survey being used to solicit public opinion on community needs as part of the Comprehensive Plan.  The survey can be completed online by clicking the link below:
