Frogtown Green is a resident-led advocacy group that protects and maintains neighborhood green spaces as well as promotes sustainable, healthy, and creative development with-in District 7. By creating and protecting Frogtown’s green spaces Frogtown Green gives the community a unique opportunity to emerge from its dire economic circumstances and to re-build itself as a lively and sustainable community. This project will report on alternative and sustainable uses of vacant land in Frogtown that will bring a boost to the community. A student researcher will need to (1) collect data specifically relating to the Frogtown population, (2) produce a final report that recommends sites for future parks and green space locations, as well as appropriate and adequate amenities for those places.
Conducted on behalf of Frogtown Green. Supported by the Kris Nelson Community-Based Research Program, a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota.
