Thank you to everyone who participated in St. Louis Park’s Vision 3.0 community engagement activities! More than 1,500 people in the community provided 4,600-plus comments on their ideas for St. Louis Park’s future.
Community involvement activities included two in-person town hall meetings; two Facebook Live town hall meetings; a survey; questions of the week on Nextdoor, Facebook and Twitter; and “One Wish for St. Louis Park” chalkboards and sandwich boards at 20 locations and events throughout the community.
