  1. Cuningham Group presents:
    Urban Currents: Minneapolis 2040: Race, Place and Equity

Tuesday, February 26, 5:30 – 7 pm
Cuningham Group, 201 Main St. SE, Suite 325

Minneapolis 2040 is a comprehensive plan that strives to shape how the city will grow and change. The plan covers topics such as housing, job access, the design of new buildings and how we use our streets. Unlike comprehensive plans of the past, the Minneapolis 2040 Plan dives deep into the far-reaching implications of what it means to truly plan a city through the lens of racial equity. Offering more than empty talk, the topic is woven throughout the Plan and will drive policy and action for the next 10 years. At this month’s Urban Currents, two of the primary authors of the Comprehensive Plan will share their perspective and insight on stories about race, place and equity-driven policy. Speakers will be Heather Worthington (Director of Long Range Planning for Community Planning and Economic Development, City of Minneapolis) and Paul Mogush, AICP (Community Planning Manager, Long Range Planning Division, City of Minneapolis). For information:
