to the commissioner of employment and economic development for a grant to the city of
Minneapolis to predesign and design an outdoor performance venue at the site of the Upper
Harbor Terminal along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. This appropriation is not
available until the commissioner of management and budget determines that $2,000,000
has been committed from nonstate sources to complete the project. Expenditures made
toward predesign and design after April 28, 2017, shall count toward the commitment of
nonstate funds.

new text begin Community benefits. new text end

new text begin The city of Minneapolis will conduct robust community
engagement to identify community benefits that can be embedded in city contracts related
to the design and the future development, construction, management, operation, maintenance,
and capital repair of an outdoor performing arts center designed with the state appropriation.
As part of those community benefits, the city shall make good faith efforts to cause the
operator, construction manager, and other subcontractors, vendors and concessionaires to
employ women and members of minority communities when hiring for the various phases
of the project. In addition, the city or its operator shall contract with an employment
assistance firm, preferably owned by an enterprise that is minority-owned, woman-owned,
or owned by an individual with disabilities to create an employment program to recruit,
hire, and retain minorities for the operation of the outdoor performance venue. The city or
its operator shall hold a job fair and recruit and advertise at Minneapolis Urban League,
Sabathani, American Indian OIC, Youthbuild organizations, and other similar organizations.
Further, the city of Minneapolis shall impose goals for construction contracts to be awarded
to women- and minority-owned businesses and workforce utilization goals that include
workers from city zip codes that have high rates of poverty and unemployment consistent
with city goal-setting on other development projects.
