Transportation Partnerships: Create and seize opportunities to leverage funding opportunities with regional partners or others making investments in the city.
Historically, the City of Minneapolis has collaborated with the State of Minnesota, Hennepin County, Metro Transit and other agencies to achieve success in transportation planning and implementation. These partnerships have helped the City create a wide reaching transportation network and provided a larger pool of funding opportunities. The City can continue to leverage other larger or capital programs that can help fund improvements and coordinate timelines and efforts in order to efficiently implement projects and achieve shared outcomes consistent with City transportation policies.
The City will seek to accomplish the following action steps to create and seize opportunities to leverage funding opportunities with regional partners or others making investments in the city.
- Coordinate with other jurisdictional partners to improve networks that run through the City of Minneapolis but are not owned by the City.
- Utilize existing City transportation policies to tie decisions to place and context.
- Advocate for greater flexibility in city-specific transportation funding mechanisms, such as impact fees for development.
