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. The website now reflects all changes made by the City Council in their Fall 2018 markup sessions. It is expected that the Metropolitan Council will complete their review in the first half of 2019, with the Minneapolis City Council taking final action on the document shortly thereafter. To track the Metropolitan Council’s review of Minneapolis 2040, visit the Minneapolis Community Page on the Metropolitan Council web site.

CRITICAL AREA PLAN

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).
