Former car dealership to get new life at 800 West Broadway

A June groundbreaking is set for Northside health, career, and education collaboration at a long-vacant dealership building at West Broadway and Aldrich Avenue North.

Developer Sherman Associates, with the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS), Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC), and Hennepin County’s NorthPoint Health and Wellness Center are joining together to provide services to residents and serve North Minneapolis. Future services will include workforce training, educational assistance and health services.

The building, originally constructed in 1925, had fallen into tax forfeited land status. To move this project forward, the Hennepin County Auditor and Treasurer (with authority from the board) directed staff to transfer the property to the city for $50,000 for the 48,300 square foot building, a market value reduction based on the removal of blight conditions.

Hennepin County Environmental will hold a Fix-It Clinic on Saturday, June 13 from noon to 4 pm at the Redeemer Center for Life Church in Minneapolis (1800 Glenwood Ave, Minneapolis,

SW LRT

 Public hearings to be held in June

The Southwest Light Rail Transit (LRT), also known as the METRO Green Line Extension Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement is available for review and comment. An electronic version of the document can be found at http://metrocouncil.org/swlrt/sdeis. Hard copies of the document are available at local libraries and city halls along the alignment, as well as at the Southwest LRT Project Office.  

The Southwest LRT Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), published on May 22, 2015, evaluates potential impacts in three segments of the proposed Southwest LRT route. These potential impacts are the result of adjustments to the design of the Southwest LRT Project since the publication of the Draft EIS in 2012. The three segments are:

Eden Prairie: Adjustments to the proposed light rail alignment and LRT stations, generally from the intersection of Technology Drive and Mitchell Road to the intersection of Flying Cloud Drive and Valley View Road.

Operations and Maintenance Facility: The location of a proposed Operations and Maintenance Facility (OMF) in Hopkins.

St. Louis Park/Minneapolis: Adjustments to proposed light rail and freight rail alignments and LRT stations, generally between Louisiana Avenue and Penn Avenue.

Comments will be accepted through July 6, 2015. Comments can be submitted by three methods:

  • Email: Written comments can be submitted to SWLRT@metrotransit.org.
  • U.S. Mail: Written comments can be mailed to Nani Jacobson, Assistant Director, Environmental and Agreements. Metro Transit - Southwest LRT Project Office, 6465 Wayzata Blvd., Suite 500, St. Louis Park, MN 55426.

Board news

May 12, 2015

Board votes to transfer Webber Park Library surplus property to Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority

The County Board voted May 12 to transfer the property at 4414 Humboldt Avenue North in Minneapolis, purchased by the county for the Webber Park Library, to the Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HCHRA). The property was deemed surplus because it was no longer needed for the adjacent Webber Park Library project. The next step for this project will be at the next HCHRA meeting June 9.

The HCHRA had issued a request for interest in October 2014 for a party to purchase and renovate or develop the 1.17 acre parcel of surplus property. The county received six responses, and they were presented to the community and evaluated by both county and city of Minneapolis staff. With approval by the HCHRA on June 9, Hennepin County will negotiate a purchase agreement with Pillsbury United Communities to open and operate a full-service grocery store and wellness center (a Finance and Commerce article about this proposal is at finance-commerce.com/2015/05/nonprofit-wants-to-revive-grocery-store-on-north-side/).

 

Board declares May 10 through 16 Law Enforcement Officers Week

National Law Enforcement Week is observed annually during this week. The week is to recognize law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty and for the safety and protection of others.

Public hearing to issue housing revenue bonds for A-Mill Artist lofts 

The board, acting as the Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority, established a public hearing on Tuesday, June 9 to issue $5 million in housing revenue bonds for A-Mill Artist Lofts project. The project is located at 301 Main Street S.E. in the Minneapolis historic Pillsbury A-Mill building. The project is being developed by Plymouth-based Dominium. The project will create 251 housing units serving households at or below 60 percent of area median income. The project was originally estimated at $156 million and received $85 million of revenue bond proceeds ($30 million from Minneapolis and $55 million from Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority). The project cost has increased and the developers are asking for an additional $5 million in HCHRA bonds.

Transit oriented development funds awarded

The board, acting as the Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority, approved transit oriented development grants and loan agreements. The grants and loans are to support development in areas that promote and support transit use. The awards include:

  • $470,000 to the City of Eden Prairie for the West 70th Street extension project to support the creation of a new complete street that will connect the future Golden Triangle Station on the Green Line extension with Shady Oak Road and Flying Cloud Drive, and fund the construction of the first phase of its implementation.

Since 2003, the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners and the HCHRA has approved a total of $25.3 million for 94 transit oriented development projects.

Board approves affordable housing agreements

The board, acting as the Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority, approved 11 Affordable Housing Incentive Fund (AHIF) agreements totaling $2.7 million under the 2015 Affordable Housing Incentive Program. These projects will assist a total of 1,220 affordable housing units in Hennepin County, including 154 households/individuals at or below 30 percent of adjusted median income; 1,059 at or below 60 percent adjusted median income; and seven at or below 80 percent adjusted median income.

The projects include:

AHIF funding agreements are typically in the form of a 30 to 40 year loan (depending upon other financers' requirements).

Bottineau LRT Community Works program funding

The board voted to formally establish the Bottineau LRT Community Works Program. The program will develop the structure, partnerships, and investment framework necessary to maximize the return on investment for the Metro Blue Line extension (Bottineau) LRT project by integrating land use planning and transportation investments that support transit oriented development and economic development, increase transit ridership, and support a multi-modal transportation system.

The board approves economic development funding criteria

The board approved criteria and authorized $500,000 for a newly established Economic Development Infrastructure Fund. The objective of the fund is to enhance the economic competitiveness of Hennepin County by leveraging private investment, increasing the tax base, and creating and retaining jobs. The Economic Development Infrastructure Fund will be used to offset extraordinary costs and infrastructure upgrades associated with relocating, starting or expanding a business. To avoid potential duplication of resources with Hennepin County’s Transit-Oriented Development Program, eligibility for the Economic Development Infrastructure Fund will be restricted to projects located outside priority transit corridors, including areas within ½ mile of existing or planned light rail, bus rapid transit, arterial bus rapid transit, and commuter rail transit stations.

Requests for funding will be reviewed based on the following project evaluation criteria:

·         Job creation and/or retention

·         Need for financial assistance, including justification for use of Hennepin County resources

·         Readiness to proceed

·         Tax base enhancement

·         Leverage from private or other public sources

·         Alignment with other Hennepin County priorities and interests

This new fund will help support business recruitment and expansion in Hennepin County and create/preserve an estimated 160 to 300 jobs.
