Minneapolis 2040, the City’s comprehensive plan, includes policies that guide how land should be used. State law requires consistency between adopted plans and a city’s zoning ordinance. This effort will satisfy that requirement, using the comprehensive plan’s 12 Future Land Use categories to guide the development of new regulations, governing issues such as:
- Uses allowed in each zoning district
- Development standards that apply to uses allowed by zoning district (size of individual uses, where retail mixed-use is required, etc.)
- Creation and mapping of new zoning districts to be consistent with the Future Land Use Map in Minneapolis 2040
Adopted Land Use Regulations
The adoption of the land use rezoning study resulted in a new zoning code with a new structure and fewer chapters. The new zoning code with updated land use regulations went into effect on July 1, 2023. The new land use regulations include both code text and map updates, with new primary zoning districts for all properties in the City.
More information about the new zoning code, including a quick reference guide for the new primary zoning districts and the new consolidated use table for all districts, can be found on the Minneapolis 2040 website.
The new zoning regulations are available in Municode.
