August-September 2014

Play on Penn aims to create an attractive destination for community-building, and is an opportunity to demonstrate the future possibilities of the Penn Avenue corridor. Play on Penn was presented by the West Broadway Business and Area Coalition and the Musicant Group in conjunction with Penn Avenue Community Works, a collaboration between Hennepin County, the City of Minneapolis and Metro Transit, to support the Penn Avenue communities’ efforts to realize their vision for transportation access, economic opportunity and improved quality of life.
