Equity Committee seeks input

The Equity Committee has been visiting local communities to ask two questions: What do you love about your community? What would you like to see changed in your community?

Initially, some common answers from the question of what do we love: The people, the walkability, the restaurants and shops and the beautiful green spaces.

What do we want to see changed? Some of the preliminary answers: More community events, more people reaching out to people, more connections, more public transportation and more access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

The committee continues to seek answers from citizens. Please share your thoughts at sapcc.org/strongcommunity.

Cleveland Avenue trees update

On July 28, two representatives from the District 12 Community Council presented a list of recommended changes to Phase II of the Cleveland Avenue project to Ramsey County staff. The goals are to preserve trees, improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety, reduce the need for retaining walls and limit the number of impermeable surfaces.

The county representative promised to consider these recommendations and to keep the District 12 Council informed during the next few months. To learn more about District 12’s requests to Ramsey County, go to sapcc.org/cleveland-trees.
