West Broadway Alive Meeting

The City of Minneapolis and West Broadway area community and business organizations invite you to participate in the next West Broadway Alive community meeting.

The meeting will be Tuesday, May 8 from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at 800 West Broadway Avenue at Aldrich and West Broadway (the former Furniture Liquidator and future YWCA).

The meeting format will be an open house with a presentation at 7:00.

The focus will be on strategies for revitalizing the West Broadway commercial core from Girard Ave N to I-94.

Join us any time during the open house to offer your comments on:

* A mock-up of a redesigned West Broadway streetscape
* Redevelopment scenarios on key sites
* Business development strategies
* Recommendations for location and design of public art

Other displays will include future land use and development intensity maps for the entire corridor as well as recommendations from North High students on how to improve safety using Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles.

800 West Broadway is accessible via Metro Transit route 14. Thank you to Cub Foods for providing parking in the northwest corner of the grocery store parking lot. Refreshments will be available. A Hmong interpreter and free child care will be provided.
