Just in case you missed it, the Raymond Avenue median just south of Energy Park Drive was filled with blooming daffodils in late April. The St. Anthony Park Community Council’s Transportation Committee instigated the three-phase traffic-calming project that began two years ago along Raymond Avenue. Barriers like the median are being put into place to help calm traffic along this busy thoroughfare.
Last year, the Community Council won a grant from the University of Minnesota’s Good Neighbor Fund to help with the planting of the median. The daffodils were the first flowers to come up this year. Next up: a number of native and pollinator species.
