Part 1: Urban Neighborhood

This survey has six parts. To navigate the survey scroll to the bottom of each page and click "Next" - it is not required to complete every question.

Question Title

* 1. Minneapolis 2040 establishes goals to Eliminate Disparities, accommodate More Residents and Jobs, and increase Affordable and Accessible Housing. To help meet these goals, reduce the number of cost-burdened households, and address income inequality between Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and White communities in Minneapolis, the comprehensive plan calls for increasing housing supply, and increasing diversity of housing types throughout the city. Each district reflects the number of units allowed on a property, and the type of congregate living allowed.

The UN1 Urban Neighborhood District allows for small-scale residential uses. It is applied in locations with Urban Neighborhood future land use and Interior 1 built form zoning.

The UN2 Urban Neighborhood District allows for small to moderate-scale residential uses. It is applied in locations with Urban Neighborhood future land use and Interior 2 and Interior 3 built form zoning.

The UN3 Urban Neighborhood District allows for moderate to large-scale residential uses near transit routes and METRO stations. It is applied in locations with Urban Neighborhood future land use and non-Interior built form zoning.

The draft map linked here shows where each of the proposed zoning districts are applied. 

Where should each of the UN districts (UN1, UN2, and UN3) be applied?

Question Title

* 2. Minneapolis 2040 calls for Urban Neighborhood areas to allow “small-scale institutional and semi-public uses (for example, schools, community centers, religious institutions, public safety facilities, etc.) scattered throughout.” 

Which institutional and civic uses should be allowed in residential areas?

Question Title

* 3. Transit built form districts are applied in parts of the city with the highest demand for housing, often with the most frequent transit service. To reflect those pressures and needs, Transit built form districts already require minimum development intensity of 2-, 4-, 6-, or 10-stories. The land use rezoning study offers another opportunity to maximize density and in areas with the best access to mass transit. 

Should Transit built form districts allow new dwellings with less than 4 units?
