Meet Minneapolis asks the community to envision the future of our city
Minneapolis (June 1, 2016) --- Meet Minneapolis, convention and visitors association, will be reaching out into the community all summer long, asking for residents’ help in planning for the future of our city.
Throughout 2016, Meet Minneapolis and the City’s Community Planning and Economic Development Department are teaming up to create Destination Transformation 2030, a 15-year tourism master plan for the city. It will help shape the city we become, from attractions and green spaces, to hotels, transportation, events and beyond. The plan will be a vehicle to drive economic development, create jobs, boost business and increase tax revenues, among many other benefits to the community.
Meet Minneapolis wants to know about residents’ visions for the future of Minneapolis. How do we make the city an even more attractive, thriving, engaging destination for visitors and residents? Destination Transformation 2030 is Minneapolis’ chance to chart a course toward becoming an even better destination in the years ahead. While the plan focuses on how the city will develop its tourism assets, local residents will also benefit greatly from improved attractions and infrastructure that will come in the years ahead.
Meet Minneapolis will do outreach and offer opportunities for the public to share their ideas for the future at these events all over the city this summer:
Open Streets Lyndale, Sunday, June 5
Twin Cities Pride, Saturday-Sunday, June 25-26
Open Streets Downtown, Sunday, July 10
