Minneapolis 2040 includes 14 goals with an overarching theme: Minneapolis’ growth must be managed with a focus on undoing barriers created by a history of policies that have prevented equitable access to housing, jobs and investments, resulting in significant racial disparities. It features nearly 100 policies with action steps outlining ways to achieve the plan’s goals.
Minneapolis 2040 will guide future growth for the city. It is informing future ordinances, zoning code revisions and the City’s strategic racial equity plan, among other items.
This plan reflects the results of over two years of engagement with the people of Minneapolis, including over 100 public meetings and conversations with thousands of residents, business owners and others.
Since the plan’s adoption, the City has implemented Minneapolis 2040 through new ordinances that require affordable housing in new residential development, legalize duplexes and triplexes in in Minneapolis’ lowest density residential areas, allow the scale of built form called for by the plan citywide, eliminate minimum parking requirements, and align travel demand management regulations with desired plan outcomes.
