Neighborhoods First Report

The team at A Better Brainerd has prepared a report that identifies eight low cost/high return projects that can be implemented in Northeast Brainerd.

This report – Neighborhoods First; A low risk, high return strategy for a better Brainerd – outlines how our community can make small, incremental investments in just one neighborhood. By observing how our neighbors use the city, by asking them where their daily struggles are, by getting out on the street and opening our hearts and minds to what is actually going on, we can discern what the pressing needs are. These are our high return investments.


If we apply this approach to all of the community’s neighborhoods, we’ll have a solid, long term investment strategy that we own and control and that all our residents and businesses are guaranteed to benefit from.
