Lyn-Lake Small Area Plan Approved by City Council

The City of Minneapolis City Council adopted the Lyn-Lake Small Area Plan on June 26, 2009. The plan, designed with input from residents, businesses, and community leaders throughout the 12 month planning process, is a vision for the business center focusing primarily on Lyndale Avenue between 26th Street and 31st Street and Lake Street between Bryant Avenue South and Blaisdell Avenue South. The plan builds upon the policy direction of The Minneapolis Plan for Sustainable Growth, the City’s comprehensive plan that guides development and growth. The City, developers, and community organizations will use the plan to guide their own decision-making processes for future land use and development in the Lyn-Lake area. The final version of the plan can be found below.
