Minnetonka Mills District PDF Print E-mail
Want to be a part of creating the future of the Minnetonka Mills district?

For the community’s historic Minnetonka Mills area, the city is trying a new planning process. This spring, before any developer application or designs are submitted, the city of Minnetonka will partner with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) through the Corridor Development Initiative to explore new ways to consider development for the Minnetonka Mills area north of Minnetonka Boulevard.

The Corridor Development Initiative (CDI) is a proactive process to assist in the planning, design, and development along major corridors.
The idea is to engage residents in playing an active part in directing development by first providing education on market realities
and financial considerations of development. Then, residents can more effectively participate in shaping development goals.
