October 4th Open Work Meetup
We’re excited to visit the beautiful Union Depot this month! Thank you to Ramsey County for opening up their space in the Depot, and for providing this month’s dinner!
Come with ideas for projects, things you may have already started, or we’ll try to match you up with an already existing project or idea. We’ll have food and some great conversation.
Met Council Data with Todd Graham
The Metropolitan Council, our regional planning agency and provider of metro-wide services including Metro Transit, produces and publishes a lot of data. Todd Graham, Principal Forecaster at the Met Council, is going to stop by and tell us a bit about all this data and talk about the types of questions it might help answer.
