Minneapolis Riverfront Revitalization Goals

Combined list of overall Minneapolis riverfront revitalization goals

NOTE: These goals generally apply to the entire Minneapolis segment of the Mississippi River. Since the current status of the various reaches of the riverfront vary significantly, the types and levels of actions needed to achieve these goals also will vary. Much of the Lower Gorge has been appropriately developed for decades, so relatively little major revitalization activity is expected there. Significant revitalization has been achieved in the last few decades in the Minneapolis Riverfront District near downtown, although more remains to be completed. The biggest focus of revitalization activity in coming years is expected to be in the Upper River area from Plymouth Avenue to the northern city limits.
