Big Ideas: Your Minneapolis 
8 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, April 2 
Minneapolis Convention Center

The conference features three tracks: 

Your city: The Community Connections Conference will kick off Minneapolis 2040, a three-year planning process for the City’s Comprehensive Plan. Minneapolis 2040 will be the City’s 20-year vision to direct the physical development of the city into the future. Discuss the big ideas for the direction of the city on such topics as growth, equity, resiliency, economic competiveness and civic technology.

Your neighborhood: The current neighborhood structure of the Community Participation Program is set to end in 2020. This is an opportunity for neighborhood organization staff, board members and residents to help plan for the future of neighborhood organizations and their roles in communities beyond 2020.

Your voice: Community engagement plays a crucial role in shaping City policy. This track will focus on ways residents can connect with City leaders, find out how to serve on City boards and commissions, and engage Minneapolis’ diverse communities.
