City Of Minneapolis   
Urban | Suburban |
In 2010, the surfacing ordinance for Minneapolis’ off-street parking was amended to allow pervious pavement to be used as surfacing. The Code of Ordinance also gives strict guidelines to be followed with implementing the pervious pavement as surfacing for parking. (541.300–305). The 2010 amendment to the original ordinance states that the implementation of pervious pavement will further the city’s comprehensive plan by encouraging developments to use best management practices for stormwater management through sustainable design practices.
