St. Louis Park has been working with Hennepin County on a potential funding opportunity called the Moving the Market program, designed to support and enhance employment and business development in and around the Southwest Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations.
“By using this grant, Hennepin County can allocate funds to support projects that meet the goals of the Moving the Market program,” says Julie Grove, economic development specialist in St. Louis Park.
Currently, the city is still waiting for approval from the Hennepin County Board. If approved by the end of the year, St. Louis Park could receive up to $25,000 from the Moving the Market program to fund activities that would support reinvestment in the Walk/Lake Street area.
“This would enhance the commercial and community vitality and would strengthen the business area,” says Grove.
