In September, the city of Minnetonka and the University of Minnesota became partners for the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), an initiative that will bring the expertise of hundreds of graduate students and the University to sustainability-related projects identified by Minnetonka.
One of the projects currently being worked on is a study of approaches to enhancing neighborhood identities. The students are asking for a little input.
"I'm in the process of developing prototypes for my neighborhood identities project, and I'm really interested in getting Minnetonka residents' input on how they feel, generally, about their community, whether they feel their interests are adequately supported in Minnetonka, and essentially, why they've moved to (or choose to stay in) Minnetonka," said Maggie Sattler, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota.
After analyzing case studies and brainstorming, Sattler has created a basic, brief 10-question survey, and she is asking Minnetonka residents to participate.
