Plan Status

The Hiawatha / Lake Station Area Master Plan was the first in a series of long-range studies being completed for transit-oriented development (TOD) around Hiawatha LRT station sites. The area of study includes portions of the Phillips Community, Corcoran Neighborhood, the Longfellow Community, and the Seward Neighborhood. It focuses on land uses, urban design, public infrastructure, and amenities located within a 1/2-mile of the station. The purpose of the Plan is to guide changes that build upon neighborhood strengths and capitalize on opportunities that may include:

The Plan was developed with public participation and guidance from both community and technical advisory committees. The Plan will inform City policy, guiding changes to the City's Comprehensive Plan (the Minneapolis Plan), zoning regulations, redevelopment activity, and capital improvement plans.

The Hiawatha /Lake Station Area Master Plan was adopted by the City Council on May 18th, 2001.
