The City of Minneapolis has released the final draft of its 2040 Comprehensive Plan, a document that will guide equitable growth in the city over the next 20 years.
Over the past two years, they have been to every corner of the city, meeting with a diverse range of residents to hear our vision for our city. They heard that people want to reduce disparities, provide access to affordable housing and living-wage jobs, create a sustainable community, and remain a health and diverse economic center.
Over the four-month public comment period on the initial draft, the City received more than 10,000 comments, and planning staff read every single one.
We encourage you to review the final draft at Minneapolis2040.com. They have provided an executive summary as well as a marked-up version of the plan so that you can easily see what was changed.
You still have time to share your feedback on the final draft. Public comments can be submitted to the Planning Commission and City Council online at minneapolis2040.com. The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on October 29, and the City Council will also hold a public hearing the week of Nov. 12. The City Council is expected to vote on the Comprehensive Plan in December before submitting the plan to the Metropolitan Council.
