KFNA just released a Strategic Visioning Survey to the community—share your thoughts, ideas, and vision here: https://bit.ly/KFNAsurvey2021
We, the neighborhoods surrounding the Wells Fargo site at 31st & Nicollet, want to engage community members in picturing a vibrant, integrated cultural and economic area that offer opportunities for residents to shop, learn, engage, build skills, build wealth, and build connections in community.
We are seeking: renters, seniors, youth, BIPOC, those living in affordable housing, those who used to live in affordable housing, those concerned about housing prices, those who are unhoused, those who are looking for work and training, and those who have been trained and work as planners, architects, nonprofit managers, business owners, artists, and entrepreneurs, + people who speak different languages, practice different religions, and come from different cultures and call this city their home. Essentially we need EVERYONE to share their vision and ideas for what will make Lake and Nicollet a thriving community that will empower low-income residents and help them gain and retain wealth.
Stipends valued at $150.00 are available for community members to do this work!
Spokes and Sneakers: The 35W@94 project is not all about freeways and neither is MnDOT. We’re also improving the bicyclist and pedestrian experience by building better pedestrian bridges over the freeway, creating a new connection from the Midtown Greenway to the new Lake Street Transit Station, widening sidewalks, improving accessibility, and more. Asks questions to the project contractor, hear from the executive director of the Midtown Greenway Coalition, and learn about the statewide pedestrian plan and multimodal transportation plan.
Presenters: Sam Buttweiler with Ames Construction, MacKenzie Turner Bargen, MnDOT’s Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator, and Soren Jensen with the Midtown Greenway Coalition.
6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 19
