What interests some Minnesotans most about RiverFirst? Jon Commers, Principal of Donjek, told our Steering Committee on January 17, that three themes are emerging from his research:
- Interest in how RiverFirst binds together separate sites
- Eagerness for immediate demonstration
- Desire to make RiverFirst concrete for the public
Donjek is preparing the RiverFirst Funding Strategy, scheduled for release this July. Commers and his team have been interviewing leaders in the private, public and nonprofit sectors, along with other stakeholders.
