The 2007 Campaign to Restore Lilac Way has evolved into a Lilac Way living repository with a new purpose. A new restorelilacway.com mobile-ready website launched in spring 2018, with 30+ pages, hundreds of new and old photos, MnDOT inventory reports, map, and videos.
Life got in the way. I started that Campaign in 2006, while caring for elderly parents. In 2008, dad died. Then the recession hit, nearly wiping out this single, self-employed gal.
When Lilac Way’s restored Lilac Park had a grand opening in St. Louis Park, MN in 2009, it included new information signage. When I designed that signage through Laukkonen Design, it featured WPA-era graphics and short blocks of info that told the story of Lilac Way and the park’s restoration.
