4 turning issues into opportunities 1st St N upper town ecological renewal This river corridor will look to provide river access for watercrafts, interaction with the water, green open space, increase habitat diversity, and public trails to create an unified eco-sytem. Division St Mississippi River middle town reconnecting to the riverfront This river corridor will look to provide a strong connection to downtown and the Mississippi River, with overlooks, event areas, small plazas, and public destinations for pedestrians and riverboats. lower town linking social & cultural facilities This river corridor will look to provide a vital social and cultural identity while protecting sensitive habitats. It is essential to create a strong connection between St. Cloud State University and downtown.
