Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Land Use Plan

Plan Background

The Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Land Use Plan was adopted in 2003 to preserve the unique characteristics of the neighborhood and to accommodate future development with minimal negative impact on the neighborhood’s quality of life. The master land use plan lays the groundwork for desired land use and future development in the neighborhood. The study is primarily intended to inventory and illustrate current problems, goals identified by the neighborhood, and recommendations on desired land uses for the future.

Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Land Use Plan (2003)


The plan does not contain a parcel based land use or built form map, rather a series of studies of redevelopment sites primarily located along Interstate 394. The Minneapolis 2040 future land use map follows designations that are similar to that displayed in the neighborhood plan. Commercial mixed use categories are focused along Penn Avenue, along I-394, and on properties that already host commercial activity.

The Minneapolis 2040 built form map increases expectations for development intensity on properties with the greatest level of access to I-394 and the Green Line LRT extension. While ‘Corridor 4’ is applied along Penn Avenue and ‘Interior 3’ is applied as a transitional category moving away from the corridor, ‘Corridor 6’, ‘Transit 10’, and ‘Transit 15’, are applied on select parcels nearest I-394 and the Green Line LRT extension to better take advantage of these highly accessible locations.
