CARAG Name Change Taskforce
CARAG has begun the process of finding a new name for the neighborhood, and the organization representing the area. We’ve established a Name Change Task Force research ideas, solicit neighbor feedback, and recommend a name later this year. Look for more info soon about how you can provide feedback including through a survey.
Why are we considering a name change?
“CARAG” is an acronym rather than the name of a community landmark, place name, or geographical feature like the names of most other Minneapolis neighborhoods.
- The name “Lake Calhoun” has been changed to “Bde Makaska” eliminating part of the reason for the
- CARAG acronym and the neighborhood boundaries are located blocks away from the lake.
- Calhoun Area Residents Action Group and CARAG can be confusing names and may no longer serve the
- organization or its’ brand.
