January Work Group Meeting

ReConnectRondo’s (RCR) mission is the realization of a Rondo Land Bridge (RLB) to reconnect communities proximate to I-94 in the Rondo neighborhood of Saint Paul. RCR will coordinate and oversee all RLB community, governmental and economic research efforts. RCR’s goal is to persuasively shape transportation policy for the creation of the RLB to create opportunities that uplift the public health, economic, housing and social conditions of these communities and ensure a higher quality of life.

We seek to do the above through our vision which is the creation of a strategic plan that addresses: jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities; achievement of economic development without gentrification; preservation of historical legacy without homogenization or cultural displacement; finding solutions to housing needs and affordability, public health and quality of life, accessibility and multi-modality transportation infrastructure; provides for the inclusion of educational, cultural, artistic, and environmental concerns.

In addition to comprehensive technical research and findings, inclusive community engagement is both a necessary precondition, as well as the ultimate measure, of the success of RCR. We aim to achieve connectedness and build trust through innovative public engagement strategies that will solidify a bond among the varied communities, professional and public agencies that will be involved in this project.
