Draft Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area Plan
The Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area (MRCCA) is a land corridor along the Mississippi River in the 7-county metro area where there are special land use regulations that guide development activity. The corridor was designated a Critical Area in 1976. Local governments in the corridor, including Minneapolis, must complete a MRCCA plan (a required chapter in the comprehensive plan) that complies with state rules (MR 6106.0010 – 6106.0180). The draft MRCCA plan for the City of Minneapolis is now available for public review and comment.
The public comment period is now closed. The draft plan is undergoing revisions, and a revised draft will be released in late September. Visit the FAQ page for more information on Minneapolis 2040.
