Building Better Communities with Transit

Feb 7, 2019

This month on Building Better Communities with Transit, we chat with Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender to learn more. Lisa, a planner by profession and now a two-term city councilor, chats about public participation in the planning process locally and the discussions that led to the passing of the city's comprehensive plan last December. She also talks about streets as public spaces and how Minneapolis 2040 plays into the city's vision for transportation, what 'value capture' and 'economic development' mean to members of the community, and how the TOD plans in the document play into the long-range plans of the city.
