THE WEDGE

Marking historic homes in The Wedge

Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Association (LHENA) was moving forward in June with a plan to recognize notable older homes in The Wedge.

The LHENA Board of Directors approved a change to its Neighborhood Revitalization Plan phase II proposal so NRP dollars could be used for the purchase of plaques. The plaques will mark residential structures that are at least 100 years old or of particular architectural interest.

The Wedge NRP Steering Committee will consider the plan modification at its July 1 meeting that begins at 7 p.m. in the Neighborhood Improvement Program building at 2431 Hennepin Ave. S.
