Charrette for greater change – October 8th, 2012

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to our final meeting and charrette at Locus Architects’ studio on Monday.  More information about the feedback we got to come, but for now, here are some pictures from the event:



Well here we are!  On our final day of our pilot program.  We hope to see many of you tonight as we meet with our Community Catalysts and brainstorm ideas for moving our actions forward in larger ways.  We have an excellent mix of community leaders in many different sectors coming to hear about our experiences and lend their voices and expertise.


We will be meeting from 5-8pm.  Locus Architects have been kind enough to offer their spaces to us located at: 708 West 40th St, MNPLS, MN 55409.  Thanks you LOCUS! For your tasting pleasure we will have some local cheeses, bulk teas and local wines.
