How will the reconstruction of Minnehaha Avenue in 2015 impact you? If you live, walk, bike, drive, park or own a business on Minnehaha, we want to hear from you. Hennepin County held two community meetings in July 2013 to discuss preliminary plans for the road construction on Minnehaha Avenue. Now that the plans have been presented, LCC would like to hear your thoughts about how this project will affect you and your livability during and after construction.
LCC is sponsoring a meeting on Wednesday, September 11th from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Tapestry Folkdance Center at 3748 Minnehaha. The meeting will feature a panel with local residents, a business owner and a representative from Hennepin County. If you would like more information, please contact the LCC offices at 612-722-4529. We hope to see you there!
