I-94 Community Forum

June 5 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

"welcome to twin cities boulevard: practical, not radical!" with mixed blood logo

Our Streets is hosting a public forum to invite community members and elected officials to learn about what’s happening with the highway project and share their experiences and desires for the future with I-94 decision-makers. This event is for anyone interested in Twin Cities Boulevard and the Rethinking I-94 project, especially for those who live along the highway.

Our Streets will present the findings of the Reimagining I-94 report, which evaluated possibilities for restoring part of the interstate into a community boulevard with new affordable housing, local businesses and parks.

Before the Forum

Leading up to the forum, we are doorknocking the affected neighborhoods to talk with residents about:

  • The findings of the Reimagining I-94 report
  • Why MnDOT’s process is failing to consider the neighboring communities
  • How neighbors can contact MnDOT and their elected officials to ask them to commit to the outlined changes
During the Forum

During the forum we will highlight these gaps in MnDOT’s process and the demands outlined in the PAC member letter, a letter signed by some of the Political Advisory Committee (PAC) for the project.

After the Forum

If they have not already committed, we have asked MnDOT to speak to attendees and publicly commit to the requested actions. If MnDOT does not commit, we will be hosting a rally at the MnDOT Commissioner’s office the following week.

Your voice is needed. Share your thoughts, concerns, questions, and ideas for the future of the neighborhood.
