Beth has two guiding principles: planning needs to be accessible, and the outcomes should elevate everyone. As the downtown planner for the City of Minneapolis, Beth has worked on several regionally significant projects in her 15-year career.
She’s completed complex implementation strategies for historic streets in the Warehouse District, creative zoning solutions, the design of multimodal streets, and—most notably—the Southwest LRT Green Line extension and redevelopment surrounding U.S. Bank Stadium. Beth has proven experience managing complex short- and long-term projects related to comprehensive planning, community revitalization, and other regulatory frameworks.
Her work has included downtown planning and revitalization, funding and implementation, and public participation methods. She’s mentored up and coming planners at her graduate school, and she’s an enthusiastic runner, yogi, and pretty much anything else that gets her moving. Regular exercise keeps her sane—which her family and coworkers appreciate.
