Community Engagement Part I, 2015


“With the advent of the light-rail transit investment, the City of Eden Prairie partnered with New American Academy, and the Twin Cities LISC / Corridor Development Initiative to lead a series of community workshops to explore development options and scenarios to enhance the district, and to elevate the potential for a more transit-oriented and walkable area”.
