Spring Grove Economic Development Authority and a diverse, growing group of citizens (working together as Spring Grove 2030) are focused on the redevelopment of a downtown city block to address aging infrastructure, better connect the K-12 school and its students with the community, and address a shortage of residential, commercial, and community spaces. The workshop will provide design guidance to create new community spaces for cultural, social, and commercial activity. Spring Grove’s designation as the first Norwegian settlement in Minnesota has shaped the town’s cultural identity and created pride shared among generations.

Workshop upcoming 2021-2022. Stay tuned!
