HMC Selected for Community Challenge Grant by AARP!

Posted on July 18, 2019 - 6:54am

We are very pleased to share that we are one of the 159 awardees of the 2019 AARP Community Challenge Grant program from AARP Livable Communities and AARP MN! The awardees of this “quick action” grant program come from every state Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Through this grant, Hamline Midway Coalition will host a community engagement event focused on pedestrianizing a neighborhood big-box store located on Hamline Avenue in St. Paul. Our community engagement strategy will build momentum to improve the pedestrian path between Hamline Station (located on the Green Line light rail transit) by engaging the residents of St. Paul, specifically the adjacent property owners and public transit users.
