Elliot Park Neighborhood Master Plan
Over two years in the planning and creation, Elliot Park Neighborhood's Master Plan is the realization of thousands of hours of effort contributed by citizen participants and community stakeholders. The Master Plan is the neighborhood's vision for directing its planning and development efforts during the upcoming years. The Elliot Park Neighborhood Master Plan was recommended for approval by the City Planning Commission at the March 17, 2003 meeting, and approved by the Minneapolis City Council at the regular meeting of April 4, 2003.
Future Land Use and Built Form
The Elliot Park Neighborhood Master Plan does not contain a parcel based land use or built form map. Guided future land use in Minneapolis 2040 allows for a mix of uses throughout the neighborhood with the application of the Public, Office, and Institutional land use category. Destination Mixed Use is applied on Chicago Avenue, which is also identified as a Goods and Services Corridor – making clear the expectation that commercial retail will be included in new developments. The plan focuses on scale of development transitioning from the downtown core toward the southern edge of the neighborhood at Interstate 94. The Minneapolis 2040 built form map retains this concept while increasing the recommended base allowed building height through application of the ‘Transit 30’, ‘Transit 20’, ‘Transit 15’, ‘Transit 10’, and ‘Corridor 6’ categories.
