St. Cloud to eye future at public meeting Wednesday

The future of St. Cloud may be, well, the future, but planning for the next 25 years in the city is a thing of the present. And if you live in the city and plan to stick around for a while and see the future, St. Cloud officials want to hear from you about their plans.

A kickoff meeting for the “Envision St. Cloud” initiative will be Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the St. Cloud Marina, 1104 Lakeshore Drive, in the second-floor banquet hall. Planning officials are trying to shape what St. Cloud will look like in 2042 — where new housing and commercial development will go and what new roads might connect them.
