CARAG down to 5 options for new name

CARAG, or the Calhoun Area Residents Action Group, is closing in on a new name for the neighborhood. Out of a long list of ideas contributed by the community, the top-ranked options are narrowed down to five:

  • Bryant Square
  • Lakewood
  • Lyn-Lake
  • South Uptown
  • Uptown South of Lake

A survey ending Aug. 8 asks residents to rank the five names. Participating CARAG residents or property owners will enter a drawing for a free stay and $50 bar tab at the Moxy Hotel.

The survey also shares a few thoughts on the thinking behind each potential name.

“We’re looking for a new name that communicates our location in Minneapolis and reflects the community,” states the survey.

CARAG’s boundaries are West Lake Street, West 36th Street, Hennepin Avenue and Lyndale Avenue.
