The Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan: Community Engagement and Policy Development Addressing Housing

On December 7, 2018, the Minneapolis City Council passed the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan by a vote of 12–1. They reaffirmed their support when they voted 10–1 for the final adoption on October 25, 2019. It is the first major policy document in the city’s history to call out the connection between racially discriminatory housing and land use policies, and their link to the deep and persistent racial disparities in the Minneapolis community. It also represents the first time that a major US city has adopted a land use policy document that addresses the prevalent use of single-family zoning, or exclusionary zoning, which was part of biased housing policies in the early part of the twentieth century.
