Minnehaha-Hiawatha Corridor Strategic Investment Framework

Client: Hennepin County Housing, Community Works, and Transit and HKGi

Community Visioning and Strategic Development Framework: Designed and led implementation for all public participation for this Hennepin County-sponsored collaborative corridor planning effort in south Minneapolis.

Community issues and priorities drove the framework to yield millions in county, city, and other public/private infrastructure investments in this aged industrial corridor. The framework also incorporated existing plans and extensive new research and analysis.

Process included stakeholder identification and analysis, in-person input at community events and festivals, intercept surveys, door-knocking, community meetings, presentations, informational materials, and audio/video input. Click here to see detailed information on stakeholder input.
