Kenwood to host light rail historic review presentation
Minnesota Department of Transportation historian Dennis Gimmestad will explain the role of Kenwood Isles Area Association (KIAA) in the review of historic properties along the future Southwest Transitway light rail corridor at the organization’s December meeting.
The Federal Transit Administration this fall granted KIAA’s request for “consulting party” status on the historic review. That gave the neighborhood organization a clearer role in determining which properties would be included in the review, as well as a say in plans to mitigate light rail’s impact on historic structures.
KIAA applied for consulting party status when some board members expressed concerns that historically significant properties in the neighborhood might be left out of the process.
The Dec. 6 meeting was scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m., one half-hour earlier than usual, for Gimmestad’s presentation.
East Harriet elects new board members
The East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association elected five new board members at its annual meeting in October.
The new members include Brian Nalesny, Jeremy Fink, Mike Jensen, Chris Iverson and Nick Petersen, who will serve as a board president.
Six board members chose not to run for re-election, including Board President Matt Perry. Also departing the board are Dean Carlson, Bruce Wadman, Roger Worm, Andrea Breen and Staven Bruce.
Public hearing set for new Kingfield restaurant
Lowbrow, the new restaurant moving into half of the rau + barber space at 4244 Nicollet Ave., is seeking a wine and beer license from the City of Minneapolis.
A public hearing on the license is scheduled for 6 p.m. Nov. 17 at Lyndale Farmstead Park, 40th Street and Bryant Avenue.
Comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community Engagement Commission to present funding recommendations
The Minneapolis Neighborhood Community Engagement Commission has drafted a recommended allocation formula to determine home much funding each city neighborhood gets from the city.
The NCEC made a few changes to its original allocation formula released in August. The Commission is trying to split a pot of $3 million for 84 neighborhoods each year.
The City’s Committee of the Whole will discuss the allocations at 10 a.m. Nov. 18 in City Hall. The City Council is scheduled to vote on the allocations Dec. 10.
