On Tuesday, September 23, the Citizens League will host a workshop to facilitate discussion focused o
n regional economic development themes central to the future of the Minneapolis-St. Paul region. With Stacy Becker, I will co-moderate a morning session entitled, "Developing a New Model for Resource Use." The League's description of the session's content offers more detail:
The last forty years were arguably an era of unprecedented wealth and resources in the United States. Participants will explore the concept of a new era of relative scarcity, and imagine possible responses. What impacts will massive demographic changes have on resource use? Are there important and costly areas where we tend to use our resources in single-purpose ways that could be developed into more flexible and adaptive purposes? Where do solutions overlap? What are the incentives that can encourage people and institutions to develop these approaches?
We are pleased to announce that Donjek has been retained to assist the City of Bloomington, Minnesota and its consultant team in the final phase of district planning for the Penn-American area. The team includes Close Landscape Architecture, ESG Architects, Lander Group, and Kimley-Horn and Associates.
Penn Avenue and American Boulevard intersect in the western half of the project area; the district occupies significant land area on the southwest corner of interstates I-494 and I-35W, as shown in the adjacent graphic. The site as a whole remains largely underutilized and is recognized by the City for its potentially powerful connections to Minneapolis, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, and the I-494 corridor.
Our charge is focused on assisting with public finance content for the final report and organizing and refining the report text itself.
