Goals & Business Plan
Like all City of Minneapolis departments, CPED operates within the context of a five-year business plan, which is updated annually. Our current business plan identifies five broad, departmental goals:
- Plan and develop a vibrant, sustainable community;
- Promote private sector growth to build a healthy economy;
- Promote economic self-sufficiency for individuals and families;
- Develop and preserve life-cycle housing throughout the city; and
- Partner effectively to promote regional growth and investment.
For an outline of specific objectives and measures that relate to each of these goals, and how they relate to the citywide goals adopted by the Mayor and City Council in 2006, see our 2010-2014 Business Plan .
