The article announces that the Corridor Housing Initiative in Minneapolis, Minnesota is the winner of the 2007 American Planning Association National Planning Excellence Award for a Grassroots Initiative.

Its goal is to assist in the planning and development of higher density affordable housing along major corridors where residents have access to transportation options, retail amenities, parks and job opportunities.
