Upper Harbor Terminal Community Input Opportunity in September

A community meeting to seek input on housing development at the Upper Harbor Terminal (UHT) redevelopment site has been scheduled:

Thursday, September 28

6:30 – 8:30 pm

Park Board headquarters, 2117 W. River Road N., second floor Board Room

The general goal of this meeting will be to gather community input on potential housing and small business components of the plan. From 6:30 to 7:30 pm, a panel will discuss challenges, issues and successes in affordable and market-rate housing and small business in North Minneapolis. The panel will be moderated by Shauen Pearce-Lassiter (Greater Minneapolis) and will include Tim Baylor (Pinnacle Management) and Sarah Larson (Landon Group). After a break, the second half of the evening will include a presentation by THOR Development of its development program concept for housing on the UHT site and an opportunity for Q & A and input. Both portions of the evening are open to the public and will be family-friendly. Refreshments will be provided.

There also will be a brief update about the UHT at the next meeting of the Above the Falls Community Advisory Committee:

Tuesday, September 26

7:05 – 7:20 pm

MPRB headquarters, 2117 W. River Road N., second floor Minnehaha room

If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for GovDelivery email updates on the UHT web site or watch for social media notices on Facebook, Twitter and NextDoor, as meetings may need to be adjusted. Information on the webpage and meeting notices also will provide more details about specific meetings and topics.

Summaries of the input received at the community meetings will be posted here. (Note: It can take a while to compile the input and prepare it to be posted.)
