Reopening Nicollet Ave Visioning – Planning Workshops
The Whittier Alliance in partnership with the Cuningham Group and the Midtown Greenway Coalition is hosting a series of workshops to create a neighborhood-based vision for the reopening of Nicollet Ave and development of the Kmart and SuperValu sites. The goal is to develop a plan that reflects the Whittier neighborhood’s preferences for land use and development.
The first three workshops – ‘I See/We See’ on October 3, ‘Asking the Right Questions & Defining the Places’ on October 10, and Greenway/Transit on November 24 – were very productive, with strong ideas put forward by the neighborhood. Please mark your calendars for the final workshops and plan on participating in this dynamic discussion. Somali and Spanish translation services provided.
Workshop 4: Presentation-Discussion of ConceptDuring this workshop, Cuningham Group will host an interactive exploration of design concepts for the study area. Participants will have the opportunity to see the design react to their comments as the session progresses.
Tentative Thursday, Dec. 17 Time & Location TBA
Workshop 5: Final Concept ReviewAfter the neighborhood has added its final touches and insights to the shape of the design, Cuningham Group will refine the product and return for a final review and discussion.
