Upper Harbor Terminal Draft Plan Is Ready for Community Input

Draft Redevelopment Plan Ready for Input

During the last several years the City of Minneapolis, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and selected Upper Harbor Terminal (UHT) development team did extensive community outreach to gather input from the community as to how they would like to see the UHT site redeveloped. This engagement was followed by several months of work to research practical considerations and explore options. The draft redevelopment concept that has resulted from this process is now ready for more specific community input.

The team wants to hear from you how well the draft plan responds to that earlier input. The initial round of engagement is outlined below, and we look forward to your participation!

Stay Informed!

If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for GovDelivery email updates on the UHT web site or watch for social media notices on Facebook, Twitter and NextDoor, as meetings may need to be adjusted. Information on the webpage and meeting notices also will provide more details about specific meetings and topics.

Summaries of the input received at the community meetings will be posted here. (Note: It can take a while to compile the input and prepare it to be posted.)
