The Village's current Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the Village Board on March 16, 2016. The Comprehensive Plan is a long range policy guide to the village's physical, social and economic development. Each of the elements (nine are required by state statutes) in the plan provides an inventory of the topic and related data, and identifies trends, goals, and recommendations for the future. The Comprehensive Plan provides direction for the community's subdivision regulations, official mapping, and amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map.

2016 Village Centre Parking Plan
The Community Development Authority adopted the Village Centre Parking Plan on November 21, 2016. The Parking Plan is intended to serve as a guide for developing a more complete and convenient parking system to the benefit of Village Centre businesses, residents, and visitors. The Parking Plan describes existing parking conditions, evaluates current and future parking demand, and makes recommendations for a variety of actions and policies to improve parking.
The purpose of the Village Centre Master Plan is to provide the Village of Menomonee Falls with a planning tool that can be used to guide short-term and long-term improvements to the historic core area. This plan, while drawing from the 1990 recommendations buildings on the Village's many downtown strengths: historic character, diversity of retail and service businesses, strong adjoining neighborhoods, the Menomonee River, the parkway and numerous accessible recreational facilities.
The Village adopted this Comprehensive Plan on December 15, 2008 to assist in guiding the development and redevelopment of Menomonee Falls and surrounding areas under its influence. The plan was designed to address changes within a twenty-year period from 2008 to 2028. The planning process began in the spring of 2006 and was completed in the fall of 2008.
This Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan was used to guide the Village in making decisions related to improvements at existing parks, new facilities, land acquisition, recreation trail extensions and improvements, and ADA requirements through the year 2015.
A five-year update to a community's plan is also an eligibility requirement for any local unit of government seeking parkland acquisition and development funding through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
The Community Development Authority of Menomonee Falls hired RTKL Associates, Inc. to prepare an area plan for the northeast area of Menomonee Falls and a redevelopment plan for the main street corridor.
The planning process occurred from November 2004 to September 2005. During this time, there were numerous opportunities for public input. A visioning workshop was held in December 2004 to gather input and creative ideas on the possible future image for the northeast area and the Main Street Corridor.
