The City of Minneapolis is extending the comment period for the draft Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan until May 22. The 10-year action plan will guide future planning, design and implementation of transportation projects for all people in all the ways they move around.
In the face of the COVID-19 crisis, City staff are extending the comment period to give people more time to learn about the action plan and provide feedback. The Transportation Action Plan advances the transportation vision outlined in the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan â€“ a framework that emphasizes equity and a commitment to addressing our climate emergency by focusing on low or no-carbon transportation options.
City staff will be holding online open houses to provide an overview of the action plan.
First online open house on the draft Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan 4:30-5:30 p.m. Monday, April 13 Join the Skype broadcast
Visit go.minneapolismn.gov to stay updated on the schedule for additional online open houses.
The plan includes strategies and actions across the following topics: walking, bicycling, transit, technology, freight, street operations and design. Highlights include:
- Reaching a goal of having three out of every five trips taken by walking, bicycling or transit to help achieve the Cityâ€™s climate goals.
- Improving the experience of people walking and rolling on our streets with actions focused on safer street crossings and a new plaza program, among other things.
- Expanding transit coverage so 75% of residents are within a five-minute walk of high frequency transit and 90% are within a 10-minute walk.
- Using street design to provide a comfortable and healthy environment for people, including more greening in street projects.
- Implementing a network of mobility hubs where people can connect to multiple shared, low or no-carbon transportation options, such as bikes, scooters, cars and transit.
