EnviroThursday—"38th & Chicago, Re-Envisioned: Determining the Future Design of George Floyd Square”

Speaker:  Alexander Kado, Transportation Planner, City of Minneapolis

On May 25, 2020, George Perry Floyd Jr. was murdered at the intersection of 38th & Chicago – forever changing the intersection and surrounding community. Since his death, the area has become a gathering space for racial healing and reflection. The City of Minneapolis is conducting a community engagement process to re-envision the intersection and is evaluating how to reconstruct the roadways leading to this area.

Alexander Kado is a transportation planner with the City of Minneapolis and the project manager for the infrastructure re-design of George Floyd Square. He is a Twin Cities native and works to provide equitable transportation infrastructure outcomes.

Refreshments provided.
