Lowry Grove Redevelopment Update

Redevelopment has been proposed for the Lowry Grove mobile home park adjacent to our neighborhood on Stinson Parkway at Lowry Avenue NE/Kenzie Terrace. A settlement was reached Aug. 1, 2017, with the former residents, according to the City of St. Anthony Village. The developer in July filed a revised development plan¬†(see right-hand column links on the village’s web site) with the City of St. Anthony Village, which has set a public hearing for Aug. 28, 7-9 p.m..

The City of St. Anthony Village explains its process as: “The Planning Commission must review this request at a public hearing (set for August 28) and formulate a recommendation to the City Council on action. The City Council must review the application and take final action prior to 120 days after application (November 16, 2017, unless the applicant voluntarily extends the deadline).”

WPCiA  continues to discuss this project at our meetings and with our Minneapolis city council member ; this motion was passed at our February Neighborhood Meeting. A group of residents, SAVNE Neighbors for a Livable Community, has also been organizing meetings and collecting documents on the project, which WPCiA will post here as they become available.
