MnDOT is interested in gathering feedback from key stakeholders on the perception of visual quality and aesthetics of MnDOT’s system across the state of Minnesota, including the appearance of US, State and Interstate highway roadsides maintained by MnDOT. You are invited to participate in a Focus Group on the aesthetics of MnDOT’s system, which will include separate discussions for economic development and tourism professionals, elected leaders and business leaders. The discussion will gather your feedback on aesthetic elements such as maintenance quality, vegetation appearance, paint condition on noise walls, presence of litter in our right of way, artistic treatments, opportunities for art in the right of way, etc. Please join this discussion or considering sending a representative from your organization.  RSVP to by May 25, 2019 to jessica.oh@state.mn.us or 651-366-4939.
