Getting Ready for a Nicollet Avenue without Kmart and Welcoming Simpson Housing to Our Neighborhood

Sep 26th @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

A Lyndale Neighborhood Association General Membership Gathering

Check-in will begin at 6:15 PM

Preparing for a Kmart-Free Nicollet

For close to 50 years we have lived with Kmart cutting off our main street from the center of the city. Now that the City of Minneapolis has both site and building control of the property, we know that this poorly conceived urban planning decision will be reversed. This project is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to engage all of you, the neighbors and businesses, who have been impacted by the decades long disconnection of Nicollet Avenue to identify your needs and share your perspectives on what you love and want to retain along the avenue, and in redeveloping a 10-acre parcel known as Kmart.  Come share your thoughts and dreams for Nicollet Avenue and learn about upcoming community engagement opportunities.

As Zion Church moves on, Simpson Housing Services moves in!

In early November, Simpson Housing Services will be moving their extended stay shelter operations to Zion Lutheran Church, 128 West 33rd Street  – this will be their interim site housing 66 individuals while construction is underway at their permanent location, on 28th Street at First Avenue.  Simpson has been operating shelter in South Minneapolis for over 40 years.  They look forward to bringing their service-rich shelter program to the Zion site – so that shelter guests will have uninterrupted service.  Come learn about Simpson’s work, the interim plan for the Zion site, and how you can get involved. If you have questions about this project please contact Steve Horsfield, Executive Director, 612-455-0841.
