The Harrison Neighborhood, which is part of the North Minneapolis HUD promise zone, is comprised primarily of people of color and many people who are living in conditions of economic poverty. The Bassett Creek Valley rests in the Harrison and Bryn Mawr neighborhoods. The threats posed by Emerald Ash Borer to the Urban Forest and TMDL studies led to this innovative partnership.
