Reflections for Moving Forward: What is needed for the next phase of work along the Green Line?
The completion of the Green Line in 2014 has attracted billions of dollars in investment along the Central Corridor, leading to changes in both the housing and economic markets. These ongoing changes in the landscape provide a backdrop for discussion around the larger implications of transit corridors on housing production and preservation, and a chance to reflect on broader issues that inform our efforts toward regional equity, prosperity, and growth: Getting the BIG PICTURE right.
The final of four sessions will offer an opportunity to look back on past topics (gentrification and displacement, naturally occuring affordable housing preservation, and mixed-income communities) and identify ways to continue the work of the Big Picture Project moving forward. The session will include:
– Overview of topics and themes from the previous sessions
– Progress report update on housing goals
– Update on City goals for the Green Line (what has shifted in Saint Paul and Minneapolis since we began?)
– Discussion: What is needed for the next phase of work along the Green Line?
Hosted by the Big Picture Project partners and coordinated by Twin Cities LISC, these conversations are designed to help us reflect on what we’ve learned so far (both locally and nationally), and to strengthen on-the-ground efforts around the most pressing housing issues. Come learn about these efforts along the Green Line, and how they can inform the strategies surrounding the Twin Cities regional transit system. Join us for this important conversation!
