Project Description

Minneapolis sustainability indicators are general, high level, forward looking measurements on a specific topic. These local sustainability indicators are centered on a vision for the community's long-term future and address linkages between various issues related to the indicator. The City Council also approved 10-year targets for each indicator in order to set a numerical goal and provide better focus to what is being measured. http://www.minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/public/@citycoordinator/documents/images/wcms1p-093724.pdf
