You’re Invited: Comprehensive Community Development in the Metropolitan Context

As GreaterMSP and other regional partnerships would portend, there is a value to connecting across neighborhoods and locality for greater cooperation and collaboration. The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis Community Development Department will be hosting the second event in their Connecting to Market Series: Neighborhoods and Housing Markets later this month. The topic of comprehensive community development in the metropolitan context will consider the implications of the foreclosure crisis and the pattern of distress on future development throughout the Twin Cities region. See the agenda below and consider attending to become a part of the effort to create a stronger regional and district in the years to come!
