Release of Draft Plan for Public Review and Comment

June 16 - August 1, 2003

A draft version of the master plan was released for public review and comment from June 16 through August 1, 2003. The draft plan was released for public review so that residents, businesses, property owners, neighborhood organizations, and City departments, boards, and agencies could review and comment on the plan prior to consideration of the document by the City Planning Commission and the City Council. At the same time, a website with the full contents of the draft plan was launched so that the document could be viewed on line.

Comments were solicited for submission in writing to the Minneapolis Planning Department by U.S. mail or by e-mail. Verbal comments made outside of the public hearing process are not incorporated into the public record.

Following the public review and comment period, all comments submitted in writing to the Minneapolis Planning Department were compiled into a report that was presented to the Minneapolis City Planning Commission and the Zoning and Planning Committee of the Minneapolis City Council.

The Public Comment Report is available in hard copy version by request from The Minneapolis Planning Department (now CPED/Planning). For further information, please contact Jack Byers at (612) 673-2634 or jack.byers@minneapolismn.gov.
