University District Alliance reports on its progress
The University District Alliance is reporting on its progress to the Legislature. To find out more, read my story in The Bridge newspaper.
It starts: During this year’s legislative session, the recently formed University District Alliance (UDA) will ask lawmakers for $8.3 million to support its operating costs, demonstration projects and initiatives in the neighborhoods surrounding the University of Minnesota.
The UDA formed in 2007 with $750,000 from the Legislature. District neighborhoods include Marcy-Holmes, Prospect Park, Southeast Como, Cedar-Riverside and the university campus; alliance members include stakeholders from those areas.
