If you couldn’t attend the St. Anthony Park Community Foundation’s second annual State of the Park event on Dec. 4, don’t worry. Amy Sparks (above) took notes.
Sparks, coordinator of the Creative Enterprise Zone and former executive director of St. Anthony Park District 12, created a “visual recording” of the night’s events, which included a nonprofit information fair; foundation updates by Jon Schumacher, executive director of the foundation, and Jay Schrader, the foundation’s board president; an update on the Como 2030 plan by Como 2030 task force co-chair Roger Purdy; and a panel discussion on demographics, development and the future. Metropolitan Council member Jon Commers moderated the discussion, which included Tom Fisher, dean of the University of Minnesota College of Design; Libby Starling, regional policy and research manager at the Metropolitan Council; and Andrew Dresdner, architect and urban designer with the Cuningham Group.
