Lowry Hill East Rezoning Study


CPED is conducting a rezoning study in the Lowry Hill East neighborhood. The purpose of this rezoning study is to examine the residence and office residence zoning districts of the properties located in the interior of the neighborhood (not the properties fronting Hennepin or Lyndale Avenues) that are located north of 28th Street W. This rezoning study is a reexamination of CPED recommendations from a rezoning study that was tabled indefinitely in 2004.

On July 1, 2016, Council Member Bender introduced the subject matter of an ordinance amending Title 20 of the Minneapolis Code of Ordinances relating to Zoning Code, amending the zoning map as part of a rezoning study in the Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Chapter 521 Zoning Districts and Maps Generally

Draft Staff Recommendations

The properties recommended for rezoning can be found in the map and list linked below. 

The map and list are all draft recommendations and are up for public comment during the 45-day public review period.  Comments on the draft recommendations should be sent in writing to Brian Schaffer (contact info below).  At the conclusion of the public comment period CPED will examine the comments provided and determine if changes are merited to the draft recommendations.

For more information regarding the background and draft recommendations please see the Memorandum to the City Planning Commission from August 4, 2016



Brian Schaffer, AICP, Principal Planner
