Franklin-Cedar/Riverside Area Master Plan

The Franklin-Cedar/Riverside Transit Oriented Development Station Area Master Plan is part of a series of long-range plans for transit-oriented development (TOD) around Hiawatha LRT station sites. The area of study includes Cedar/Riverside, Seward, East Phillips, and Ventura Village. 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 has been incorporated into the City's Comprehensive Plan (the Minneapolis Plan for Sustainable Growth), has resulted in changes to zoning regulations, and continues to guide redevelopment activity and capital improvement plans.

The Franklin Avenue LRT Station Area Development Implementation Plan (2005) assesses the development potential of the Franklin Avenue station area in terms of site-specific opportunities and needed infrastructure investments for each of eight defined “precincts.” While not adopted City policy, the document is a tool for the City, Hennepin County, property owners, and developers to use in advancing the vision outlined in the adopted station area plan.

In 2008 the Minneapolis City Council adopted the Cedar Riverside Small Area Plan, which provides updated land use policy for the Cedar Riverside portion of the area covered in the Franklin-Cedar/Riverside Area Master Plan.
