Date: October, 29th, 2018

Time: 4:30 p.m.

Location: City Hall Room 317 – 350 S. 5th St., Minneapolis, MN 55401

Purpose: The City of Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan guides equitable growth in the city over the next 20 years. Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan covers topics such as housing, job access, land use, and how we use our streets. Minneapolis, along with every community in the metropolitan region, is tasked with this important process to provide orderly, smart and equitable growth that not only makes sense for the city but also for the metropolitan region. The Comprehensive Plan is based on 14 goals adopted by the City Council, including reducing disparities, providing access to affordable housing and living-wage jobs, creating a sustainable community, and remaining a healthy and diverse economic center.

The final draft of the plan is the product of a thoughtful engagement effort and integrates public comments collected during the last two-years. This feedback made this plan stronger and more reflective of our community’s values.

The City Planning Commission will meet Monday, October 29th, 2018, at 4:30 p.m., in Room 317 City Hall, 350 S. 5th St., Minneapolis MN. Interested parties are invited to attend and be heard. Planning Department staff will issue a recommendation to the Planning Commission. After hearing from the public, the Planning Commission will make recommendations to City Council where another public hearing will be held regarding this item November 14th, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers.
