I know this is getting old, but literally EVERY major historical preservation project in Minneapolis over the last two decades is thanks to Lisa. So it is hard to celebrate Historic Preservation Week withoutgiving kudos to the City Councilperson who has made them happen: Lisa Goodman @ Friends of Lisa Goodman! So let’s just pick one out of the hat… how about Cowles Center for Dance? Block E comes in to raze a whole city block, including the Shubert Theater. Lisa Goodman stalled the City Council, slapped the building into the National Register, and then cooperated with Artspace to MOVE THE THEATER down the street, attach it to another historic building and expand the performing arts center which has welcomed more than 1 million people since 2009!!! Could anyone else but Lisa manage all of the zillions of moving parts to save this theater?? Nope. Thanks Lisa!
