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.

POLICY 27

Transportation Partnerships: Create and seize opportunities to identify and achieve shared goals, responsibilities, and participation while leveraging 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 access 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.

ACTION STEPS

The City will seek to accomplish the following action steps to create and seize opportunities to identify and achieve shared goals, responsibilities, and participation while leveraging funding opportunities with regional partners or others making investments in the city.

  1. Coordinate with other jurisdictional partners to improve networks that run through the City of Minneapolis but are not owned by the City.
  2. Utilize existing City transportation policies to tie decisions to place and context.
  3. Advocate for greater flexibility in city-specific transportation funding mechanisms.
