Alisa has worked for Target Corporation for the last 13 years and is currently Snr. Group Manager for New Business Development. Alisa views the Mississippi river flowing through Minneapolis as one of the most underutilized assets in our city. She wants to see people living, working, and playing along the riverfront and enjoying an amazing blend of nature with cityscapes and activity. She believes in the need to bring various partnerships together between city, parks, residents, and businesses to take a holistic view of the Minneapolis riverfront area and work towards a common vision that can create an amazing flow and connectivity through the city. Like the Sienne in Paris, and Hyde Park in London - nature and city can act as one and provide incredibly memorable experiences!
