City’s new Web address is now live

The City of Minneapolis new Web address is now live. The new URL www.minneapolismn.gov — is shorter, easier to remember, and more secure than our previous URL (ci.minneapolis.mn.us) because only government entities can use the .gov URL.

Your new email address follows the old convention with the new URL following the @ symbol: firstname.lastname@minneapolismn.gov. This is the email address that people will now see when they receive an email from you or reply to one of your emails.
