On the Agenda for the Oct. 16 Neighborhood Meeting – 7 p.m.
- The city has issued a revised draft of the Comprehensive Plan 2040, which designates land use, transportation, development, environmental, equity and other policies. Come hear directly from Minneapolis’s Director of Long-Range Planning Heather Worthington what this means for the Windom Park neighborhood, our residential zoning and density, our commercial areas and what, if any, changes were made that are in keeping with the Windom Park neighborhood’s Small Area Plan. Come with your questions and comments; also note that the city has set public hearings for Oct. 29, 4:30 p.m. at city hall (Planning Commission) and sometime during the week of Nov. 12 (city council).
- An on-street bike lane has been proposed for Stinson Parkway in our neighborhood. Come view and comment on the proposed layouts from the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. We will be forwarding your feedback to them, and then talk directly with them at our Nov. 20 annual meeting about various parks topics.
- Due to a schedule conflict, the Master Gardener will not be able to join us tonight. Instead, she plans to attend our Nov. 20 Annual Meeting to answer your questions about yard and garden care, critter control, and what you can do over the winter to get ready for spring.
- Tonight’s agenda also includes Open Forum – your comments and announcements about non-agenda items are welcome.
- Other business, including announcements about our Nov. 20 Annual Meeting and Board of Directors election. Please consider running for a seat on the board! If you are a Windom Park resident or property owner of legal age, or a business representative from the neighborhood, you are eligible to vote and make motions at our neighborhood meetings. If you fit the above criteria plus you have attended a Windom Park neighborhood meeting in the past year (November 2017-October 2018) you are eligible to run for and serve on the WPCiA Board of Directors.
Meeting begins at 7 p.m. tonight at the Windom Park Recreation Center, 2251 Hayes St. NE. All are encouraged to attend. Free child care by park staff during the meeting. Accessible location with free parking and nearby bus routes.
