Some zoning limits are about how big a building can be.
Minneapolis 2040 calls this "Built Form." The city adopted 2040 built form zoning code updates on in December of 2020. Learn how Neighbors for More Neighbors worked to improve that policy here
Other zoning code limits prohibit some activities in some neighborhoods. Where are doctors offices allowed? Corner stores? Coffee shops? Musical instrument repair shops? This is what the City is working on today, fall 2022.
One Minneapolis 2040 goal was "Complete Neighborhoods: In 2040, all Minneapolis residents will have access to employment, retail services, healthy food, parks, and other daily needs via walking, biking, and public transit."
Help us understand what a complete neighborhood means to you. We'll ask what you'd like to have within a short walk or bike or transit ride of your home, and what you don't want in your neighborhood.
