more about the 2025 plan


Our 2025 plan network works year-round to produce events, advocate for legislation, build connections and much more—all of which helps our downtown thrive. When you visit, you’ll see The 2025 Plan influence in new office buildings, the growing residential population, enhanced transit, The Commons, Nicollet and more. Learn more about our 2025 plan’s past and future work.


The 2025 Plan has 10 core initiatives that focus on downtown development, greening and public realm, downtown experience, transportation, ending street homelessness and launching a festival of ideas. These initiatives work hand-in-hand to create a flourishing downtown environment for those who live, work, play and explore here. Read the full 2025 Plan.
