After more than 200 posts, this is it: the final Central Corridor Funders Collaborative blog. Since 2008, we’ve used this forum to share our partners’ progress, news about the Green Line, and information about our work. In this final post, we’d like to close with a couple of things:
- A highlights reel from our final stakeholder event “About Community, Not a Commute” held on June 17th at the Southern Theater.
- MinnPost’s June 28, 2016 article “In final act, Central Corridor Funders Collaborative looks at what went right (and wrong) with Green Line development”; and most importantly,
- A huge thank you to the hundreds of extraordinary individuals who put their blood, sweat, tears, money, and time into ensuring that the Green Line wasn’t just a train zipping by and through neighborhoods, but rather a corridor where businesses can start and grow, neighbors of all incomes can live, cultures from across the globe are celebrated, and parks, bike lanes, and other amenities connect to surrounding communities.
While the Funders Collaborative shuts its doors this week, we know that the work lives on in the communities we serve and with the organizations that have been part of this journey for the past decade. Thank you for making this a true corridor of opportunity.
