Thrive MSP 2040

One Vision, One Metropolitan Region

Thrive MSP 2040 is the vision for our region over the next 30 years. It reflects our concerns and aspirations, anticipates future needs in the region, and addresses our responsibility to future generations. 

About Thrive MSP

Under state law, the Council prepares a long-range plan for the Twin Cities region every 10 years. These policies also drive the systems and policy plans developed by the Council: the Transportation Policy Plan, the Water Resources Policy Plan, the Regional Parks Policy Plan, and the Council’s first Housing Policy Plan update in nearly 30 years.

Our region’s investments provide an important economic foundation so all residents of the region can prosper. Transportation, jobs, community development, affordable housing – these are the bricks-and-mortar basics that make other things possible.

Choice, Place and Opportunity: An Equity Assessment of the Twin Cities Region

In support of the Thrive MSP 2040 process, the Council has conducted an equity assessment of the Twin Cities region, as required by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Called Choice, Place and Opportunity: An Equity Assessment of the Twin Cities Region, this analysis answers questions related to the region’s opportunities, distribution and access to those opportunities, and how the Thrive MSP 2040 plan should structure public investments to assure residents can access opportunities equitably.
The analysis has been developed in phases, including a data analysis phase and inclusion of related recommendations in the Thrive MSP 2040 document.
