Hiawatha Maintenance Facility Expansion

This EAW studies the proposed Hiawatha Maintenance Facility Expansion located at 1911 East 26th Street, 1860 East 28th Street and 2717 Longfellow Avenue in Minneapolis.

Availability of the environmental assessment worksheet (EAW)

The Minneapolis Public Works Department is proposing to expand their Hiawatha Maintenance Facility, located at 1911 East 26th Street, into the property immediately to the south. This will involve the relocation and consolidation of water distribution maintenance office, shop, yard and vehicle/equipment storage functions, and sewer and stormwater office staff from elsewhere, requiring the demolition of the former Roof Depot warehouse building, and construction of approximately 328,000 square feet of new buildings, and parking (surface and structured) for an additional 360 City and personal vehicles.

Copies of the EAW will be available for review at the downtown Minneapolis Central Library located at 300 Nicollet Mall. Notice will be published in the EQB Monitor on Tuesday, February 9, 2021. Public comments on the EAW must be made within the 30-day comment period, which ends at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 11, 2021. It is anticipated that the BIHZ Committee at its regular meeting on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, or at a subsequent meeting, will receive a report and recommendation from City staff and consider the adequacy of this EAW and the need for an Environmental Impact Statement for this proposal. The City Council will act on the recommendation of this Committee at its regular meeting on Friday, April 16, 2021, or at a subsequent meeting.

The 30-day comment period was extended an additional 14 days or to March 25, 2021.
