Lynnhurst Residential Historic District Designation Study and Survey
On July 30, 2019, the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission directed planning staff to prepare a historic designation study of the Lynnhurst Residential Historic District. Prepared by a local historical consultant, the properties within the study boundaries were surveyed, but only a smaller concentration of properties were recommended for local designation as a historic district. The study outlines the methodology for the survey and discusses the historical background and significance of the properties within the proposed boundaries. Survey forms for each property inventoried are included at the end of the report.
The study was submitted to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) for comments in February 2020, and CPED received comments in late April in favor of historic designation. Comments in favor of designation were also received by the City Planning Commission during their regular meeting on April 27, 2020. On June 23, 2020, the Heritage Preservation Commission voted to approve the local historic district designation of the Lynnhurst Residential Historic District. Next, there will be a discussion before the Business, Inspections, and Zoning (BIZ) Committee of the City Council on July 21, 2020 at 1:30 pm and a vote for final approval or denial before the full City Council on July 31, 2020 at 9:30 am. Interim protection for the study area will expire on July 30, 2020.
**Sign up to speak at the BIZ meeting on July 21st, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. Speakers can sign up three days in advance. The BIZ meeting is not a public hearing, but the chair of the Committee can decide whether or not to allow public comment.
