How to Comment on Minneapolis 2040 - The City's Draft Comprehensive Plan
From March 22 through July 22, 2018, the City will be reaching out to the Minneapolis community to discuss this draft plan and to encourage review and feedback. Be sure to sign up for updates and follow us on Twitter to learn about specific opportunities to engage. This plan is truly a draft. Following the close of the public comment period on July 22, City staff will make revisions to the plan based on public feedback and present a final draft to the City Planning Commission and City Council in Fall 2018.

Host a Meeting-in-a-Box – Click here to learn more about how you can host your own conversation and provide feedback on the comprehensive plan. Meeting-in-a-Box is a civic engagement method designed for use by community groups, neighborhood associations, or friends to gather at a convenient time and location to share their ideas and proposals for the future of the city.
In addition to in-person engagement opportunities, we also invite feedback on the draft plan via this web site through the following methods:
Comment on individual draft policies - Under each draft policy is a green comment box. We encourage you to use these boxes for comments that are specific to a particular draft policy, so that we can be certain we know which draft policy your comment relates to.
Comment on the draft Land Use and Built Form Maps - Linked from the Land Use and Built Form page is a map application that invites comments on each of the draft plan maps. Follow the instructions in that application to offer your comments attached to points, lines, or shapes that you draw.
Submit a general comment via the Comment Form - Use the comment form to submit a general comment or one that is not specific to a particular draft policy or location on the draft maps.
Send us an email - And, of course, feel free to send us an email with your comments. Feel free to attach formal correspondence in response to this draft plan, or even a photo of a place that represents your vision for the future of Minneapolis. Our email address is email@example.com.
