Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, music events will provide Community Access to the Arts: building community, bringing people together and creating commonalities through shared experiences in a safe space. The project coordinator will ask for specific feedback from community leaders, including police who patrol during the events, regarding their perceptions of tangible impacts 2nd Street Stage has on the community.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Police Chief wrote: 2nd Street Stage is an excellent opportunity for Park Rapids residents and visitors to get together for a great night of family friendly entertainment. It showcases the downtown area and is an excellent draw to the community. I have personally been told by friends and family how awesome it is that Park Rapids has summer entertainment that is family friendly every week during the summer...truly a great weekly event that makes for a fun evening no matter what age you may be.
