3

The Vikings' new stadium would be located on the western edge of downtown, near the Twins' Target Field. The plan's 10 initiatives include: 1. Double the downtown residential population to 70,000. 2. Transform Nicollet Mall into a "must see" regional and even national destination. 3. Build Gateway Park, a "central park" that would create a "grand connection" between downtown and the Mississippi River. 4. Create a consistently compelling downtown experience of arts and entertainment. 5. Establish a downtown sports district that includes a new Vikings stadium and a renovated Target Center. 6. Lead the nation in entertainment options. 7. Create and sustain a green infrastructure. 8. Forge connections to the University of Minnesota, including a residential district on the Metrodome site. 9. End street homelessness. 10. Launch a festival of ideas, apparently a festival concept that's been used successful in other cities.
