Partnerships


Have Grants for this Project been secured?

N/A


Describe status and timing details of secured or applied for grants or other non-City funding sources:

N/A


Describe any collaborative arrangements with outside project partners, including who they are and what their role is with the project:

Varies - generally these do result from a partnership.


Planning


State Law Chapter 462.356 (Subd. 2) requires review of all capital improvements for compliance with the comprehensive municipal plan. Chapter 13, Section 4 of the City Charter requires Location and Design Review for the purpose of approving the sale of bonds for these projects.

Describe how the project is consistent with the adopted City/Park Board comprehensive plans and how the project implements goals and policies as stated in the adopted plans, including specific policy references:


Goal 11 - Clean environment: In 2040, Minneapolis will have healthy air, clean water, and a vibrant ecosystem. (Policy 72:Sustainable Water System Management, Policy 73:Stormwater Management, Policy 74:Integration of Water Management into Development)


Goal 10 - Climate change resilience: In 2040, Minneapolis will be resilient to the effects of climate change and diminishing natural resources, and will be on track to achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. (Policy 72:Sustainable Water System Management, Policy 73:Stormwater Management, Policy 74:Integration of Water Management into Development)


Goal 9 - Complete neighborhoods: In 2040, all Minneapolis residents will have access to employment, retail services, healthy food, parks, and other daily needs via walking, biking, and public transit. (Policy 17: Complete Streets)



This project is consistent with planning and policy guidelines set forth in the City’s comprehensive plan Minneapolis 2040



Provide the date that Location and Design Review was conducted for the project, the outcome of that analysis and the date formal action was taken by the Planning Commission:

Location and Design Review has not occurred for this project yet.


Economic Development


Will the project contribute to growth in the city’s tax base?


Describe the economic development impact of the project:


Does the project support redevelopment opportunity that without the project would be infeasible?


Transportation


Is the proposed project on an existing or planned transitway, transit route, or high-volume pedestrian corridor? If yes, provide details on how the project will improve the transit and/or pedestrian experience.

N/A


Does the proposed project anticipate multi-modal enhancements (sidewalks, bicycle or transit facilities)? Provide details.

N/A


Is the right-of-way constrained and do you anticipate that modes of travel will be competing for space? Provide details, is there potential for innovative design options? Provide details

N/A

Operating Impacts


Operations & Capital Asset Maintenance:

Is this request for new or existing infrastructure?

What is the expected useful life of the project/Improvement?

Year that Operating Incr/(Decr) will take effect?

What is the estimated annual operating cost increase or (decrease) for this project?

Any Prior Year Remaining Bond Authorizations?

Prior Year Remaining Bond Authorizations:


Describe how operating cost increases or decreases were determined and include details such as personnel costs, materials, contracts, energy savings, etc:

This work is for various small projects for outside agencies and sometimes for other divisions of public works and the operating cost impacts cannot really be determined. The Stormwater Maintenance Department would cover any routine costs that would result from the improvements made by this program



If new infrastructure, discuss how the department/agency will pay for the increased annual operating costs:

N/A


For new infrastructure, describe the estimated timing and dollar amount of future capital investment required to realize the full expected useful life of the project:

N/A

Project Coordination


Describe completion status for ongoing projects and how and when the department/agency plans to use the prior year remaining bond authorizations:

N/A


If this is a new project, describe the major project phases and timing anticipated for completing the project:

N/A


Scalability/Funding Allocation Flexibility – discuss any flexibility to increase or decrease funding among the years in the five-year plan and the most that could be spent in a given year:TBD

Minneapolis Goals and Strategic Direction

Minneapolis is a growing and vibrant world-class city with a flourishing economy and a pristine environment, where all people are safe, healthy and have equitable opportunities for success and happiness. Below is a description of how this project meets each of the City's Goals.

Economic Development



Public Services


The City prioritizes reliable and equitable access to high-quality public services.

Work collaboratively between City departments to ensure utility budgets are adequately funded to maintain aging infrastructure systems


Prioritize and reserve the City’s sanitary and storm sewer capacity for its intended purpose and prohibit groundwater or other waste streams from entering the storm or sanitary sewer infrastructure unless the City gives approval.


Environmental Justice:


The City prioritizes sustainable practices and renewable resources to equitably address climate change while restoring and protecting our soil, water and air.

Manage the city’s surface waters, groundwater, stormwater, wastewater and drinking water equitably and sustainably, while minimizing the adverse impacts of climate change.


Use hydraulic and water quality models and data about infrastructure condition and risks to prioritize and inform investments in sanitary and storm infrastructure.


Continue work to reduce risk of overflows from the historically connected sewers and work to reduce infiltration and inflow into the city’s sanitary sewer system through infrastructure improvements.


Consider climate forecasts in stormwater feasibility and modeling work to inform infrastructure investments.


Explore the impacts of flooding on public safety, the protection of property, public infrastructure and the environment.


Improve the tree canopy and urban forest.


Built Environment & Transportation:


The City prioritizes high quality neighborhoods, streets, infrastructure and equitable access to multimodal transportation in all parts of the City through thoughtful planning and design.

Manage and design transportation infrastructure with a priority on water quality through the reduction of stormwater runoff and pollutants including road salt.


Maximize the use of public property to meet flood mitigation and water quality goals via green infrastructure and other stormwater best management practices


Use infiltration best practices and bio-infiltration to reduce stormwater impacts on surface waters.


Encourage and require reductions in amounts of impervious surfaces. Pilot and promote permeable surface solutions as alternatives to impervious surfaces.
