Prioritizing Sustainable Communities at the Ford Site
Tuesday, June 30 12:00-1:30
Shanna Schmitt (MPCA), Merritt Clapp-Smith (Moxie Consulting), Kevin Gallatin (Highland District Council Board Member)
This webinar will examine one of the most high-profile redevelopment projects in the Twin Cities. Participants will hear from a panel of experts on how planners were able to advocate for affordable housing and sustainability, what role local communities played in shaping the projects, and what has gone into getting the site cleaned up enough for use.

Equity and Gentrification
Tuesday, July 28 12:00-1:30
Ava Langston-Kenney (St. Paul Port Authority)
This webinar will educate participants on the history and harm of gentrification as well as provide tools to ensure they are considering equity in their projects. Participants will hear from experts who will discuss what measures the St. Paul Port Authority and other municipal organizations are taking currently to ensure localized wealth-building, and to avoid displacement when planning redevelopment projects. The role of community engagement and outreach in planning sustainable, equitable projects will also be addressed.

Investing in Community Post-COVID
Tuesday, August 25 12:00-1:30
Speakers TBA
The economic repercussions of the COVID-19 outbreak will present cities with some difficult choices. When properties become available due to foreclosure, cities have an even greater responsibility to ensure redevelopment prioritizes community needs. The panel will discuss community considerations and working with developers to ensure local demands are met.

Thank you to the sponsors of this event series.
