Discussion on the Second Draft of 2040 Plan on Oct. 16: Hosted by Council Member Palmisano

20407:15 p.m.
Tues., Oct. 16
Armatage Park

The second draft of the 2040 Minneapolis Comprehensive Plan will be released by Sept. 29 at the latest. Ward 13 Council Member Linea Palmisano has agreed to hold discussions with each of the 7 neighborhoods she represents regarding the second draft and its recommendations.

Kenny and Armatage neighborhood associations hold their regular, monthly meetings on the same night; in order to not short change either neighborhood’s engagement or discussion, we have agreed to a combined meeting in order to allow for a thorough and unrushed discussion.

KNA will still hold its regular Board meeting on Oct. 16, but it will be in the small meeting room at ARMATAGE  Park starting at 6 p.m. and then we will adjourn and move to the multipurpose room at 7:15 p.m. for the 2040 discussion.

We hope you will join us and your Armatage neighbors for this important update and discussion.
