“Our Development Future: The Above the Falls Policy Review and Implementation Study”

Eleven years after a visionary plan for the Mississippi River above St. Anthony Falls was adopted, the transformation of the Minneapolis riverfront is attracting new energy and attention. This focus is critical for Minneapolis - and the region.

Haila Maze and Thomas Leighton, Principal Planners with the City of Minneapolis Community Planning and Economic Development Department, provided an update on the findings of the Above the Falls Policy Review and Implementation Study. They highlighted key issues that shape new development along the City’s riverfront above the falls and reflected on the balance point between the visionary and the possible.

The Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership hosts this public forum series with the Above the Falls Citizen Advisory Committee (AFCAC), an appointed commission charged with supporting riverfront revitalization, including business, environmental and neighborhood representatives.
