On December 7, 2018, the Minneapolis City Council directed staff to submit a final draft of Minneapolis 2040 to the Metropolitan Council for their review. That review is complete, and the Metropolitan Council is scheduled to consider Minneapolis 2040 for approval on September 25, 2019. The Metropolitan Council evaluates local plans for consistency with the regional Thrive MSP 2040 plan, and with metropolitan systems plans for housing, transportation, parks, and water.

 

Following approval from the Metropolitan Council, the Minneapolis City Council will take final action on Minneapolis 2040. City Council action is expected on October 11, 2019, with a presentation from staff at the Committee of the Whole meeting on October 10. Staff will recommend to the City Council that the policies in Minneapolis 2040 have an effective date of November 16, 2019. This will give time for stakeholders, staff, and elected officials to prepare for the transition from the current Comprehensive Plan to Minneapolis 2040.

 

In the coming years the City will make a series of amendments to the zoning code and maps to implement the policies of Minneapolis 2040, as required by state statute. The first of these will be changes that allow three residential units per property, to coincide with the effective date of Minneapolis 2040. More information about these zoning code text amendments will be posted on the City’s Code Development website.

 

Below is a timeline of the next steps leading to the adoption of the 2040 plan.
