Stakeholder Working Group
Project partners (Hennepin County, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and City of Minneapolis) are working with community representatives and organizations around the Whittier Neighborhood (Whittier Alliance, Soo Line Community Garden, Midtown Greenway Coalition, Lyn-Lake Business Association, Lake Street Council, Twin Cities Adaptive Cycling and Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People With Disabilities) as part of a Stakeholder Working Group.
The group is meeting monthly (October 2021 - February 2022), and are working together to discuss opportunities, concerns, and challenges and identify potential designs for this access.
Notes from the working group meetings will be available soon.
Understanding challenges and identifying needs
Engagement began in spring 2021, the public was invited to learn more about existing challenges and identifying needs that will help inform our initial designs that will improve connections between the Midtown Greenway and nearby areas for people of all abilities. Thank you for your engagement and feedback on our initial discussions. We've received a lot of great comments and feedback from many of you. Below is a link to the summary of survey responses and comments below.

Virtual listening session and survey
In June 2021, Hennepin County staff hosted a virtual listening session to provide an overview of the project, timeline of events and next steps. Following the presentation, attendees engaged with staff, asking questions and sharing comments.

The community survey closed on Wednesday, July 14. We want to thank everyone for taking the time to complete our initial community survey.
