North Saint Paul Living Street Engagement Plan.

Chalmers, Nadine, Kate Christopherson, Aika Mengi, Cadence Peterson, Jun Tang.

Produced by students in PA 5253: Designing Participation Processes, fall 2013 (Instructor Carissa Schively Slotterback, Humphrey School of Public Affairs) as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of North St. Paul. 

After a careful analysis of the key concerns of North Saint Paul, Minnesota residents, the authors have created this public engagement plan for he city's Living Streets initiative. This plan seeks to alleviate concerns about the aesthetics and costs of the Living Streets program. Our outreach process will include a branding campaign, a series of workshops, visual preference surveys, roundtable discussions, design charts, and pop-ups. It is designed to create a forum to solicit and respond to community members' concerns about living streets, to provide information to the public about living streets, and finally to involve residents in the design process. The authors believe that this process will help community members better understand the purpose of living streets and generate more community ownership of the project by making community members feel that their concerns were addressed throughout the participation process.
