The City was first surveyed for historic resources in the 1970s and many of today’s designated landmarks and historic districts are a result of the original survey. Since 2001, CPED has conducted a re-survey of historic resources in Minneapolis that has been funded by grants from the Minnesota Historical Society and matched by City dollars. The City has undertaken the re-survey because the aging of properties, changing attitudes about which types of historic resources need to be identified, e.g. historic landscapes, cultural and ethnic group resources. The survey will help achieve the City's goal of documenting historic resources throughout the entire city over a ten-year period, which is scheduled for completion in 2011.
