Less driving, more of everything else: Minneapolis plans for future of transportation

After setting the vision for the future growth of Minneapolis with the 2040 comprehensive plan, the city is now looking to change its approach to transportation, away from cars and toward sustainable alternatives.

City officials this year are developing a guiding document for the next ten years of municipal transportation projects. Starting this month, they will host meetings asking people how they move around the city and how that mobility could be improved.

“We need to make sure our transportation system really provides options for people, particularly in growing neighborhoods,” City Council President Lisa Bender said last week.
