The City of Wayzata seeks to establish a vision to transform Wayzata Boulevard to an even more welcoming, safe, connected, active commerce center for the Wayzata community in decades to come through the introduction of a detailed and comprehensive corridor plan. The corridor plan is intended to be a holistic, community-centered process to establish a vision for the corridor that extends beyond the curb line and provides a cohesive framework for land use, development regulation, future infrastructure and streetscape interventions, and interim and future pedestrian, cyclist, and vehicular safety improvements.

A Request for Proposal was sent out in March, 2022 to select a consultant that will work through the corridor study and complete community engagement throughout the process. The Consultant Selection Committee selected SRF to conduct and manage the corridor study.

Study Goals

  • Engage residents, business owners, and visitors to the area to create a cohesive land use and transportation plan for the corridor that implements the vision set forth in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan and 2040 Community Vision
  • Analyze transportation safety issues related to the high number of access points (driveways) along the corridor and high traffic speeds, particularly in the segment east of Superior Blvd
  • Identify opportunities for roadway safety improvements that could be made in the short-term
  • Create a long-term plan with specific attention on the segment under County jurisdiction anticipated for roadway reconstruction between 2030 and 2035 
  • Evaluate pedestrian and bicycle network gaps, prioritize investments in the network 
  • Study the existing developments, identify properties likely to redevelop and create cohesive land use and development plan that guides the City’s response to development proposals 
  • Determine the updates that should be made to the Zoning Ordinance 
  • Investigate opportunities for public realm, streetscape, and right of way improvements such as signage, lighting, landscaping, seating, and public art
  • Evaluate the existing public transportation system
