3808 Nicollet, Minneapolis
We are excited to announce that the construction work on our new building will start next month! We are very grateful for everyone who has generously supported our capital campaign during the past three years. We hope that you can join us for a groundbreaking ceremony on May 6 to celebrate this exciting stage!
Our new building will offer a safe, accessible space for HIV+ members who have no other family or “home” where they can get support. It also will substantially increase our capacity to serve the growing number of HIV+ individuals who need our services. We are continuing our fundraising during the next few months to minimize the need for a long-term mortgage.
Thanks to people like you who have helped to make this new building a reality!

East Harriet Community Meeting Update
Last night East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association (EHFNA) hosted a neighborhood community meeting regarding the project development plans at 40th & Lyndale Ave S. Over 65 residents attended. CM Meg Tuthill was also in attendance. After introductions and brief overview of the property history, Paul Dzubnar, developer, and Jim Smart, architect, reviewed project details and design. Afterwards residents had the opportunity to ask questions, make comments and express their opinion. Specific questions were raised regarding parking, noise abatement and hours. Further questions, comments or concerns can be directed to Paul Dzubnar at firstname.lastname@example.org
Whether or not a resident was able to attend last night’s meeting, there are the following opportunities for continued community engagement on the parking variance and beer/wine license:
Mr. Dzubnar is still in the process of securing signatures of 2/3 of the affected residents and businesses for the rezoning of the plat (4008 Lyndale Ave S.) for the 13 parking spaces, and once secured, will be submitting to the city for approval.
NOTE: The developer had two options to address off street parking: a parking overlay for the plat between SA and the existing house, which would require a number of variance requests OR rezone the plat from residential to C1. Either way, signatures need to be secured from neighbors. Parking spaces are determined by restaurant occupancy.
The EHFNA Board will also be voting on the rezoning for the parking spaces at this week’s meeting, Wednesday, May 1 and forwarding that information to the City Planning, a vote which is advisory in nature. East Harriet’s Housing, Zoning and Business Committee (HZB) and EHFNA Board members reviewed information last week and many Committee and Board members attended again last night’s meeting.
Once the rezoning for parking is approved there will be a public meeting scheduled at a later date and facilitated by the City of Minneapolis with regards to the Charter Wine and Strong Beer License.

While many folks prefer to focus on the Eat Street area of Nicollet Avenue, there are plenty of great locations to investigate further south as well. One great intersection is at 43rd and Nicollet. Here sits Corner Table, a posh hot spot boasting locally farmed entrees and grass-fed beef. Across the street is Anodyne Coffee House, a Kingfield neighborhood staple that offers many vegan and gluten-free treats, including soups and veggie burgers. It also hosts a monthly storytelling series. Businesses a few buildings down either way include Roadrunner Records, where you can shop for rare and vintage tunes; the always hopping Kingfield Farmers’ Market; the Lowbrow, which features a killer happy hour and a great family-friendly brunch; and the charming Nicollet Bookstore.
East Harriet Community Meeting on Monday, April 29, 2013
One of the goals of EHFNA is to encourage and facilitate communication for the residents and businesses on changes within our neighborhood. The EHFNA Housing, Zoning and Business Committee would like to announce an opportunity to share with residents the development plans for the two pieces of property at 40th & Lyndale, formerly owned by SuperAmerica.
With the start of major construction activities starting next week, other preparatory items that have started and/or will start soon:
- Minneapolis Water has started placing the temporary water lines that will be needed when the cleaning and lining of the water main is done.
- CenturyLink should wrap up their manhole rebuild at 37th and Nicollet this week and anticipate that next week they will begin on a manhole south of 38th St.
- With the project there are some trees that will need to be removed. Tree removal will is scheduled to start April 29th.
Public Works will hold Stakeholder Construction update meetings to provide an opportunity for residents and business owners to learn what is happening with the construction and share potential issues and concerns. At this point, meetings will be scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Thursday of May and June. We may adjust the frequency of the meetings based on needs and meeting attendance.
