Council Member's Message

I have public forums coming up on a variety of topics of interest to Ward One. See below for information on a Youth Master Plan meeting I'm co-hosting with the Youth Congress on March 18. I will also be co-hosting a meeting with members of the 2000-Watt Society on March 27 as they unveil their Minneapolis Carbon Framework Plan for fighting climate change. See below for the details.

The third forum coming up will share information about the development of Minneapolis' new transportation plan. Now that we have completed work on our Comprehensive Plan, it's time to begin developing the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan, a 10-year plan to guide future planning, design and implementation of transportation projects in our city.

The Transportation Plan - GO Minneapolis - will be guided by six goals: climate, safety, equity, prosperity, mobility, and active strategies/active partnerships. It will build on our previous transportation plan, Access Minneapolis, and be shaped by other plans that are already in place: Minneapolis 2040, Climate Action Plan, Complete Streets, Vision Zero, and the 20 Year Street Funding Plan. The end result will identify specific actions the city and its partners can take to implement the transportation vision laid out in Minneapolis 2040.

Community input is an essential piece of this process, so I hope many of you will consider joining me and Public Works planning staff at this upcoming public forum to learn more about the plan and offer your input:

Public Works staff will also be offering multiple opportunities for input throughout 2019. Visit http://go.minneapolismn.gov/ to learn about upcoming public events and workshops.
