Report Summary: This TAP focused on the 115-acre site, the Root District near downtown Minneapolis. The panel provided guidance for the establishment of a flexible net zero framework that can be used to support decision-making in the development of the district. Given the sustainable vision for the Root District’s future, the district was selected to participate in the Urban Land Institute’s Net Zero Imperative. Experts and stakeholders met to discuss the complexities of the built environment, history, and community of the district in order to compose a plan for the implementation of an equitable net zero framework that meets the community’s needs. The recommendations of the panel focused around three key themes; equity and community engagement, district strategy and renewable energy and public tools, policy and the business case for net zero.
