- Opportunity to Comment on 1925 Nicollet Avenue Redevelopment Plan – Comments Due Monday October 5, 2020
The City of Minneapolis is seeking input on the 1925 Nicollet Avenue Redevelopment Plan (the “Plan”).
The Plan has been prepared to facilitate redevelopment of a site at 1913 and 1925 Nicollet Avenue. Family Tree Clinic proposes to demolish an existing vacant building and construct a new 16,545-square-foot two-story medical clinic on the site.
The developer has secured Hennepin County Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) program funds to help pay development costs. It is a requirement of the County TOD program that the site be located within a redevelopment project area. The 1925 Nicollet Avenue Redevelopment Plan has been prepared to satisfy that requirement and to promote the redevelopment of a vacant structure and underutilized site.
The Plan establishes a new redevelopment project and identifies its boundary, redevelopment objectives, and land use provisions.
Please submit your comments by noon on Monday, October 5, 2020 via e-mail to Beth Grosen, Senior Project Coordinator, Department of Community Planning and Economic Development, 612-673-5002. If you or your group would like to meet to discuss the Plan, or if you have questions, please contact Beth Grosen.
It is expected that the Plan will be considered at the following meetings of the Minneapolis City Council and its committees:

- The City of Minneapolis invites you to provide comments on the draft 2020 Regional Assessment of Fair Housing (AI).
The purpose of the public comment period is to receive comment on the content and findings of the draft AI. Completion of the regional AI is required of communities that receive housing and community development funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Written and/or oral comments may be submitted to: Matt Bower. Please include “2020 Regional AI Public Comment” in the subject line.
Written comments will be accepted now through October 1, 2020.
The Fair Housing Implementation Council (FHIC), a partnership of the Cities of Coon Rapids, Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Minneapolis, Minnetonka, Plymouth, St. Paul and Woodbury; the Counties of Anoka, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Washington; and the Community Development Agencies of Carver and Scott Counties, contracted the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law to produce the Assessment.
Minneapolis AI Public Meeting (PDF)
City staff will summarize all comments for the Minneapolis City Council as they consider adoption of the regional AI tentatively scheduled for October 2, 2020.
- The City of Minneapolis is seeking input on a proposed Community Preference Policy for certain City assisted housing activities. The goal of the Community Preference Policy is to disrupt involuntary displacement of Minneapolis residents who have experienced displacement or who are at-risk of displacement from neighborhoods experiencing extreme economic forces through housing preference opportunities. Involuntary displacement disproportionately impacts Black, Indigenous, People of Color and Immigrant (BIPOCI) communities and low wealth communities. A community preference policy gives residents residing within certain geographies preference to receive assistance for specific city programs or projects.
Please see the policy and background study for more information. Please submit comments to Aarica Coleman. Comments are due by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 26, 2020.
