Abstract

The Street Improvement Project was a collaboration between City Council Member Cam Gordon’s Office, the West Bank Community Coalition (WBCC), the City of Minneapolis’ Department of Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) and the University of Minnesota Cedar-Humphrey Action for Neighborhood Collaborative Engagement (CHANCE). The goal of the project was to create four community-based street plans oriented towards improving pedestrian and bicycle safety. The plans included one for 4th Street South, one for 15th Avenue South, and two for 6th Street South, including one that adhered to a $30,000 construction cost and one that did not. The project was selected to be completed because the City of Minneapolis has plans to repave 4th Street and 15th Avenue in 2014. Community stakeholders were interested in having a neighborhood produced plan to use as an advocacy tool in the City’s planning process for the streets. Additionally, all three streets, particularly 6th Street, have significant design issues relating to pedestrian and bicyclist safety. This report includes five sections with information research and findings, current site conditions, the community engagement process, recommended street designs for 4th, 15th, and 6th, and recommendations to project partners. Also, all of the engagement process materials are presented in appendices for the use of project partners if it is decided that further community input is needed.
