Midtown Community Works is a public-private partnership formed to guide the redevelopment of the Midtown Greenway-Lake Street corridor in south Minneapolis. The goals are to enhance how communities in the corridor work together to create economic vitality and build long-term value by investing in greenspace as well as infrastructure and other public works. Key to these projects are deep engagement with the community, which includes many Latino, Somali, and Native members. Patricia Fitzgerald, Manager of Community and Economic Development with Hennepin County reflects on the process for the Midtown Community Works Connection Study, “We had focus groups and specific cultural communities along the corridor and we had facilitators within the communities to do that work with us and we also did some engagement activities that brought out a really nice, diverse age range and cultural range to participate in activities to envision [the] future.”
