Long range planning: planning

Information about long range planning in the City of Minneapolis.

Minneapolis planners bring people together to help create communities that enrich lives and have lasting value. City planners hold special concern for the long-range consequences of present actions in order to achieve this goal. This is accomplished through: 

  • Updating the 30-year vision in the City’s Comprehensive Plan every ten years
  • Providing more detail to the citywide Comprehensive Plan through facilitation of small area planning processes in neighborhoods, along corridors, and in transit station areas
  • Developing citywide thematic plans on a variety of topics that influence all parts of the city
  • Implementing City policies through zoning studies, public land transactions, and infrastructure improvements
