The October Think Again Brooklyns forum will give an overview of the GreenStep Cities program.

Brooklyn Park is not currently a GreenStep City. It will soon have major projects underway, which will increase city opportunities to implement green step practices. 

Projects include:

  • The reconstruction of the northern part of West Broadway
  • Development along the Bottineau Light Rail Transit line
  • Further development in the northern part of the city
  • Ddding biking and walking paths

Find out what the GreenStep Cities program offers and how the GreenStep Cities program has worked in a nearby city to consider whether it could benefit Brooklyn Park.


  • 6:00 p.m. pizza buffet and social
  • 6:30 p.m. program
