Recovery of Proceeds from Impound Lot Sale Settlement

Add your voice to improving the Minneapolis Impound Lot

The City has launched an online survey to gather feedback for the Impound Lot Facility Improvement Project from Minneapolis residents. Project organizers will use survey results to identify additional improvement ideas and understand community perceptions about the impound lot. 

The project is in the master planning phase, which will determine whether to renovate and expand the existing impound lot building or replace it with a new structure. Additionally, the facility’s footprint will be reduced and new landscaping, fencing and security improvements, and energy efficiency improvements will be made. Construction is expected to start in summer 2017 and take about a year to complete.

The survey is available in English, Spanish, Hmong and Somali. Take the survey at
