Council Member's Message


Recently the city released a draft of our Comprehensive Plan, Minneapolis 2040. The Comprehensive Plan is the guiding document that provides a road map to manage our city’s growth and development. Municipalities in the Twin Cities area are required to provide the Metropolitan Council with an updated Comprehensive Plan every ten years. To that end we have developed a framework, organized around the 14 city goals the Council adopted in 2017.

Now we need your engagement and input to shape the final product. I invite you all to spend some time assessing the draft and offering your input. Comments can be made at the Minneapolis 2040 website or shared on Twitter: #Mpls2040 @Mpls2040. You may also contact me directly at Kevin.reich@minneapolismn.gov or 612-673-2201, attend one of my Community Conversations or participate in an upcoming forum in the First Ward (date to be announced shortly). The final plan needs to serve us all, so I hope the voices of each and everyone of us will be part of the conversation.

In other news, I want to draw your attention to the fact that our Spring Street Sweep is coming up. Crews will be starting on April 17, so check out the story below for more details. Also, one of our community's signature events - Hotdish Revolution - happens April 15 and I hope to see you there!
