Allows users to learn about projects within the city
With all the new construction happening in Maple Grove, motorists and their passengers are sure to wonder “I wonder what is going on there?”
The city of Maple Grove has created a way for people find out the answer to that very question. An interactive development map has been created with all the current, future and completed development projects within the city.
Maple Grove Economic Development Manager Carie Wille said the city decided to create the map in response to the resident and business interest in new development occurring throughout the community.
“We often get calls asking about what new project is going in, so this provides a method to share that information,” she added.
City staff feels that residents will be able to access the information about the ongoing development projects in a quick and easy-to-use format.
“It allows residents to access information about the ongoing development projects in a quick, easy-to-use interactive format. It is organized by pending review, approved, under construction, and completed,” Wille said.
For example, by clicking on number 15, the interactive map zooms in to the location for the EC North project. There is also a description that is brought up regarding the project. The EC North project is the redevelopment of an existing 5,537-square-foot sit down restaurant property into a 4,068-square-foot walk-up bank with drive-thru ATM (Bank of America) and a 7,029-square-foot sit down restaurant (CRAVE).
“Not only does it include a map, but also drawings, renderings, and photographs (when applicable), so residents can visualize the project,” said added.
Wille said the map is updated on an on-going basis.
“Maple Grove has a lot of exciting development happening, and we want residents to be able to stay up-to-date,” she added.
