February 28, 2017, Tuesday - Riverfront Vitality Forum: Water Over the Dam at Mill City Museum

Join us: Water Over the Dam

Time: Doors open at 5:30, program begins at 6:00pm

Location: Mill City Museum, 704 South 2nd Street

Riverfront Vitality Forum: Water Over the Dam
Hosted by Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership and Preserve Minneapolis

What does the future hold for St. Anthony Falls?

St. Anthony Falls has been a center of development along this part of the Mississippi River for more than two centuries, and part of a cultural heritage since long before that. As we bring our Riverfront Vitality Forum series into 2017, we're starting with a discussion of the past, present and future of this centerpiece of the Minneapolis riverfront.

Water Over the Dam, to be held the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 28, will present a discussion of the different ways that our community depends on water flowing over the falls. We'll talk about the falls from the Native American perspective, the industrial perspective, the recreational perspective and the economic one. Come join us!

Panelists include Peggy Lucas, co-founder of Brighton Development and a U of M Regent; Darlene St. Clair, professor of American Indian Studies at St. Cloud State; Dan Dressler, public programs manager, Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, part of the National Park Service; Neal Route, development associate for Dominium, owners of the Pillsbury A-Mill. Richard Kronick, an architectural historian and member of the board of Preserve Minneapolis, which is co-presenting this forum with Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership, will moderate the panel.

Registration is not required, but will help us plan.
