The City of Minneapolis recently passed a resolution supporting
The Falls, a redevelopment initiative to transform the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock into a visitor and interpretive center. The Water Works project continues to move ahead adjacent to this new project. Collectively, this forum will feature leadership from the Riverfront Partnership and the Minneapolis Park Foundation giving us a comprehensive look at projects transforming the riverfront for generations to come.
