MET COUNCIL PLANNING
The Met Council has released a System Statement that will become the 2040 Comprehensive Plan for Carver County and SAN FRANCISCO TOWNSHIP. The system statement shows how the changes to the regional systems plan affect your community specifically. If they are planning anything that we object to we need to file a formal plan amendment by 2018. Here is the link to the plan. The township board will need to initiate any changes that we want made.
It is important that residents know what is being planned for their community!
Permits for burning are now done online at the MN DNR website.

Welcome to San Francisco Township!
Located along the banks of the Minnesota River, approximately 30 miles southwest of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, San Francisco Township is one of 10 townships in Carver County, Minnesota.
Settled in 1854 and organized May 11, 1858, the township was named by William Foster, who in 1854 platted and named a village site on his claim, taking the name from the city of California.
In 2006, an estimated 923 residents (Metropolitan Council, 2007) made their home in San Francisco Township.
The township has a total land area of approximately 26 square miles (15,437 Acres) and has the most varied landscape of all the townships in Carver County.
Currently, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife, along with the Minnesota DNR, own approximately 1000 acres of parkland in the Township.
The northwestern 1/3 of the township is a prime agricultural area, with high quality agricultural soils. The remainder of the township consists of sandy outwash areas associated with Bevins & Silver Creek and the Minnesota River.
The San Francicsco Township Board consists of 3 Supervisors (each elected for a 3 yr term), a Clerk and a Treasurer (both elected far a 2 yr term). The board meets at the town hall the third Monday of every month at 7PM. The public is encouraged to attend our meetings and be active in running your township.
