CDG managed and coordinated the successful implementation of all four Open Streets events held in Minneapolis in 2013.
The events, in which streets are temporarily closed to automobile traffic so that people may use that space for other activities (walking, jogging, bicycling, dancing and just about anything else) invite a community's residents to experience their streets as enjoyable public spaces. Open Streets events can foster increased community conviviality, support local businesses, increase participation in active transportation, and lead to implementation actions that result in improved community health and well-being.
Events took place along South Lyndale Avenue, Central Avenue NE, Minnehaha Avenue, and North Lowry Avenue.
