Bringing Vibrancy to Green Line neighborhoods: Knight Green Line Challenge announces 16 winners

October 14, 2014
 

Earlier today, the Knight Foundation announced the 16 projects that have been selected to receive grant awards totaling altogether $530,000.  The winners were chosen for their vision, reach, and range in their pursuit to develop the neighborhoods along the Green Line.  This year’s winners will spur economic activity, bring people together in unique spaces, make the area more pedestrian-friendly or bike-friendly and attract new interest to a neighborhood.
 
The Knight Green Line Challenge is a three-year, $1.5 million contest aiming to make St. Paul neighborhoods along the Green Line vibrant places to live, work, play, and visit.  In its inaugural year, the Knight Green Line Challenge received an astounding 579 applicants.
