"Hennepin County is proud to be a partner in this unique public/private venture, transforming a neighborhood barrier into a community asset that makes sense from a social, environmental, and economic perspective. The Midtown Greenway creates a real link between the city and the western suburbs and is an important connection in the development of the regional trail and transportation system. A combination of landscape, lighting, community gardens, pocket parks, public art, and mixed-use development will reflect the unique character of the fifteen neighborhoods along the Greenway, creating a special place in Minneapolis to live, work, shop, and play." — Gail Dorfman
