Corridor Residents Share Thoughts During Door Knocking Event

On May 2, the project team did a corridor-wide “door knocking” event to talk to area residents about the Minnehaha-Hiawatha Community Works project.  It was a beautiful Saturday morning – over 150 people gave their thoughts on their community.

The project team knocked on all houses in the corridor from Lake Street to Minnehaha Parkway between Hiawatha Avenue and the east side of Minnehaha Avenue.  Residents were asked to answer the question: “Five years from now, the Minnehaha-Hiawatha Corridor will be a better place to live because…”

There was a lot of great input from area residents.  In general, residents see a future corridor that is vibrant (with more businesses and things to do); safe and accessible for bikers, walkers, and cars; and an attractive place to live (well maintained properties and no graffiti).  Many residents hope for a stronger sense of community, with more opportunities to get to know their neighbors.  Other residents look for accountability related to taxes, regulation, and other things.

Please go to Corridor Door-Knocking to read all comments that were made during the event.

Thanks to members of Bethany Lutheran Church’s Adult Forum members for offering their ideas and input into the future of the corridor. They had some new ideas, especially around helping travelers and people from outside the area find out about historic sites, parks, and all the great things to do in these neighborhoods.
