Do you know what's in the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan?
Every ten years, the City of Minneapolis develops a long-term plan for how it will change and grow. The City has developed a draft 2040 Comprehensive Plan and citizens can submit comments to the Mayor and their council members. The Plan has many of the right goals. It just goes about them in the wrong way. We need a city that works for everyone.
Learn how the City’s long-term plan will affect your life.
As of July 22nd, the City Long Range Planning Department is no longer accepting citizen comments on the draft. Agencies such as the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board must submit comments on the 2040 Comprehensive Plan by September 22nd. It is not plain how the Long Range Planning Department is processing and incorporating the estimated 10,000 citizen comments into the Comprehensive Plan. The plan needs to be corrected now because it will be difficult to change course once it is finalized and submitted to the Metropolitan Council at the end of 2018. You can continue to submit concerns, questions, and comments to City Council Members and the Mayor. We need a city that works for everyone.

Who are we to tell you about the 2040 Plan?
We’re concerned citizens and residents. Neighbors who want the best for all of our city’s neighborhoods. Homeowner and renters. Young and old. Like you, we want to see Minneapolis thrive and benefit all residents.
We established this website because we have concerns about the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan and want our friends and neighbors to be informed about the impact it could have on our neighborhoods, communities, and city as a whole.
Minneapolis for Everyone is a nonprofit organization that opposes the Minneapolis 2040 because it:
- Discriminates in housing and transportation against families with children, the disabled, the elderly, and people with low income.
- Takes neighborhood planning away from neighborhoods and centralizes it in City Hall.
- Prompts more density than required by the Met Council, at the expense of quality of life and the environment.
Please take some time to learn more about the Comprehensive Plan and what you can do to make sure it reflects the needs of all of us.
