CRNRP is excited to share news of our latest community initiative, the West Bank Walks project, generously funded by the University of Minnesota’s Good Neighbor Fund.
The purpose of the project is to build social connections among West Bank community members while promoting a safe and attractive neighborhood.
Over the next year, CRNRP and its primary partners, the West Bank Business Association and the West Bank Community Coalition will recruit constituents from every sector of the community to participate in safety walks. Other local partners in this effort include our media sponsor, KFAI Radio, the West Bank Community Development Corporation, Augsburg College, the U of M, the West Bank Safety Committee, and the West Bank Cedar Riverside Safety Center.
We have several Walks scheduled in the upcoming months! Please join us and help keep our neighborhood clean. The upcoming dates are:
