I gave this presentation to the Lowry Hill Neighborhood Association (LHNA) Annual Meeting in May 2014. Several people requested that it be made available to the general public, so I have created this brief overview for Streets.MN in anticipation of a Hennepin-Lyndale Reconstruction Project Open House Monday August 4th, 2014 at 6:30 PM at the Walker Art Center. Special thanks to the Minnesota Historical Society, Lowry Hill Neighborhood Association, Citizens for a Loring Park Community, area volunteers and designers, and countless professors and community ‘storytellers’ I’ve encountered over the years to put some semblance of a history of the corridor together. But I’m no historian–this is merely a volunteer’s effort to provide some historical context to and vision for the commons. The specifics of the Hennepin-Lyndale Reconstruction Project were covered by my co-presenter, the project consultant Jessica Laabs with Kimley-Horn. I hope to see you at the open house!
Nice job, Craig! Very interesting. I’m hoping to be able to see some of the options you describe here at tonight’s open house.
