PLACE: St. Mary’s Greek

Orthodox Church

3450 Irving Ave. S.

Minneapolis, MN 55408

Community Crime Prevention/SAFE of the Minneapolis Police Department and Minneapolis Housing Inspections are providing this workshop. Attending the workshop provides owners and managers with valuable information, resources and opportunities to network with other property owners. Workshop topics:

• The ABCs of property management

• Working with the Minneapolis Police Department

• Working with Housing Inspections

• Tenant behavior issues

• The risk of lead poisoning

• Hennepin County Housing Court / mediation

• Networking opportunities

The training and landlord guide provided by Community Crime Prevention/SAFE is intended to foster healthy and safe neighborhoods through property owner/manager involvement to reduce drug dealing and other illegal activity in the community. The materials and training should not be regarded as legal advice or considered a replacement for the property owner/manager’s responsibility to be familiar with the law. In that regard, I release the City of Minneapolis and Community Crime Prevention/SAFE and their employees from all liability and responsibility regarding my participation in this program. No video or audio recording of presentation. If you register and do not attend, you will receive the materials and a DVD on Hennepin County Housing Court instead of a refund.

Registration Form can be found online at http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/police/outreach/docs/RPOW.pdf

Please be sure to bring your check to the workshop. Please register by April 3 to ensure your space and help us budget for enough meals!

Call to Order: Tom Parent, Chair of the KFNA Redevelopment Committee opened the meeting by reviewing the agenda, which was focused on Crime and Safety Issues related to KFNA and this project. Parent showed the group the comment book that is a compilation of all the comments submitted to KFNA on the Nicollet Square project thus far. Parent stated that these comments will be reviewed by the redevelopment committee and the KFNA board. He also noted that KFNA is still accepting comments from neighborhood residents.

Parent quickly reviewed the summary of the community engagement process that has transpired over the last few months regarding the PCNF Nicollet Square development. The summary was emailed to residents and included in the printed agenda. It is also listed below and links to supporting documents and meeting minutes can be found at www.kingfield.org.

Dave Fields of the Elliot Park neighborhood, unable to attend the meeting due to illness, wrote a letter describing his experiences on the daily functioning and neighborhood impact of Barnabas.  Meeting also allowed for extensive Q&A session with all presenters.
Feb 6, 2008
Presentations by Ed Goetz (Humphrey Institute, University of Minnesota), Amanda Arnold (City of Minneapolis), Cermak Rhoades Architects and PCNF.  Mr. Goetz spoke about the academic research he has done in Minneapolis in regards to the impact affordable housing has had on property values in areas surrounding the developments.  Ms. Arnold described the vision the City of Minneapolis has for Nicollet Avenue and the process that all developments must go through for building and zoning approval.  Cermak Rhoades presented three design schemes for the development and sought neighborhood preference.  PCNF presented the reasons for including a retail component on the corner of 37th & Nicollet.  Meeting also allowed for extensive Q&A session with all presenters.
KFNA brought forward the idea of a Community Benefits Agreement and sought volunteers to serve on a CBA Work Group.
Current Crime Issues:
Crime Prevention Specialist CPS Tom Thompson gave a PowerPoint presentation on Kingfield crime statistics pulling data from 2002-2007. Thompson noted that the Geomaster system (the source of the data presented tonight) was replaced in 2007 by a different technology to process crime stats. Thompson made a disclaimer that the data presented tonight is mostly accurate based on his cross checks with the other system but some of the data in 2007 may be slightly off.

Kingfield Farmers’ Market Committee
Tuesday, February 26, 2008
7:00-8:30pm
Grand Cafe

Attendance: Melinda Ludwiczak, David Nicholson, Scott Pampuch, David Brauer, Jobylynn Sassily-James, Donna Viland (new to KFNA may assist with grant research and writing)
KFNA Staff: Joanna Hallstrom

Agenda Review and Announcements: Nicholson reviewed the agenda no items changed. Nicholson reported that the KFNA board was not able to approve the market coordinator job description without a budget. He passed a budget around for review; no changes were suggested by the KFMC. The 08-market budget and the job description will be submitted together to the board for an email vote so that the job description can be posted ASAP.

Discussion Items
Market Coordinator job description/posting plan: Brauer and Nicholson already posted the market coordinator position via the Minneapolis Issues list etc believing that it had been finalized. Hallstrom has received two inquiries -Sheila Daleny, former ED for Longfellow Community Council and Sharon Nygren (experience in development work, special events, environmental education, has a small organic landscaping business etc). Both interested parties asked about compensation. The group had wanted to leave this open until interviews. Hallstrom requested permission to give the guaranteed hourly rate of $15/hr with the explanation that it is the goal of the committee to expand the market coordinator position through development work (i.e. securing grants etc.) The committee agreed on this and Hallstrom or Linnes-Robinson will notify the interested applicant.

Dear Kingfield neighbors,

I am always looking for volunteers for the monthly Iraq KIA WIA public art action – let me know if you’d like to join us.

Each month I recruit 6 – 9 people to hold numeric signs that show the total number of US servicemen and women who have been killed or wounded to date in Iraq. To view photos of earlier excursions visit my web site: www.gageart.net and click on Gallery.

We show the signs on the 40th Street Pedestrian Bridge over I-35W in south Minneapolis. We hold the signs for one hour during afternoon rush hour. This month we will be holding the signs Wednesday, February 27, 2008 from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. (Sunset is about 5:50 p.m.)

Since this project began in May, 2006 the number of US troops killed or wounded in the Iraq war has increased from 18,970 to over 33,000.  These numbers are taken from www.icasualties.org which collects all their data from official Dept of Defense sources. The number does not include post trautmatic stress disorder or other service-related mental illness.

The Iraq KIA WIA project is non-partisan and strives to keep this important number in the public consciousness. If you’d like to participate please email cgage@spacestar.net.

Peace,

Camille Gage
