Minneapolis named an Amazing Place for using smart growth strategies

A national organization recognized Minneapolis for using smart growth strategies to help grow its economy. Smart Growth America highlights Minneapolis in its latest report, Amazing Place, for taking a new approach to economic development that focuses on attracting new companies and residents through neighborhood development and placemaking.

According to Smart Growth America:

“More and more companies want vibrant neighborhoods with affordable housing options, restaurants, nightlife, and other amenities in walking distance, and a range of transportation options for their employees. If tax breaks were the old way to do economic development, creating great places is the new way.”

Smart Growth America also featured Boise, Idaho; Denver; Greenville, South Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; and Pittsburgh in the Amazing Place report.
