Uptown plans

The Uptown Association decided that in 2012 it needed to convene representatives of the various business and neighborhood associations in Uptown to try and resolve some community issues and to take advantage of some of our opportunities.

Our first task is to review past planning efforts to see what has been suggested to date, what has been done with those suggestions, and then fill in any new items that have come up since then. From there we will engage our communities in providing feedback on where we think the collective priorities ought to lie.

The organizations that have participated with the group include:
– Calhoun Area Residents Action Group (CARAG)
– East Calhoun Community Organization
– East Isles Residents Association
– Lake Street Council
– Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Association
– Lowry Hill Neighborhood Association
– South Hennepin Business Association
– South Hennepin Special Service District
– Uptown Association
– Uptown Special Service District
– Ward 10 Office

Currently we are consolidating the data and will be engaging our respective community organizations later in the summer of 2012.
