Nicollet Lighting Project hearing set for July 12

The city has set a July 12 public hearing on the Kingfield neighborhood’s streetlight project for Nicollet Avenue between 36th and 40th streets. The hearing will be at 9:30 a.m. in City Hall, 350 S. 5th St., room 317.

The project would complete the lighting project started in 2000 that covered 40th to 46th streets.

The Kingfield Neighborhood Association will pay for 78 percent of the lighting cost, up to $224,000 – as they did in the project’s first phase. The money comes from group’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program funds. Property owners will pay for the remainder of the project through property-tax assessments.
