The Downtown Action Plan is the first part of a four-part citywide transportation planning effort. The other plan elements include: (1) Citywide Ten-Year Transportation Action Plan, (2) Street and Sidewalk Design Guidelines, and (3) Streetcar Feasibility Study. The remaining three plan elements will be discussed at future public meetings - most likely held in May or June. The Downtown Action Plan recommends a system approach to meeting transportation needs in downtown and includes recommended actions for pedestrians, bicycles, transit and automobiles.

Pre-registration for the public meetings is not required. Since the public meetings will include presentations on plan recommendations, followed by an opportunity for discussion of key plan elements and individual questions, people are encouraged to arrive at the designated meeting start time. People are also welcome to drop in at any time to view plan maps and talk with project staff.

Upon request, the City will provide reasonable accommodations to person with disabilities or who are in need of a translator. Please submit such requests or requests for additional information to Charleen Zimmer, Project Manager, at 612-673-3166 or Charleen.Zimmer@ci.minneapolis.mn.us no later than seven days prior to the meeting.
