The community is invited to learn more about the Upper Harbor Terminal site, see a concept for its redevelopment and join in a discussion of what “equity” could mean relative to this site. A tour of the Phase 1 portion of the site also will be available (but spots are limited).
When: Thursday, September 29; 5:00 – 6:30 pm, tour and open house; 6:30 – 8:00 pm, public meeting
Where: Supreme Marine, 3456 North Washington Ave. (main entrance off Washington)
The tour from 5:00 – 6:00 pm will give participants a chance to visit the Phase 1 portions of the site. Tour spots are limited, so please contact Siciid Ali at Sali@minneapolisparks.org or 612-230-6576 to reserve your spot. Please note that the site is industrial in nature, may not be safe for children, and may require walking on rough terrain. Participants should dress accordingly, including sturdy shoes. A liability waiver will be required of all participants. (Note: This tour is intended for community members. If you are with a firm interested in development and/or business on the site, we ask that you not take these spaces.)
From 5:00 – 6:30 pm, you may view the 3-D model built by Juxtaposition Arts apprentices to encourage visioning and discussion for the Phase 1 portion of the site. Learn about their concept, and share input on possible improvements and project equity in an informal setting.
The meeting from 6:30 - 8:00 pm will be a more focused discussion on how equity can be a centerpiece to the Upper Harbor Terminal site redevelopment.
Light refreshments will be provided, and family members are welcome. The City Clerks office is also planning to have a table available where attendees can register to vote.
