The fight goes on! The 2301 California St. NE development is currently in process until Friday Nov. 13th when the city council will decide whether they will deny the zoning change that will stop the project or NOT and let the project go forward. We still have a chance to stop this project and others like in the future. Your voice and energy is needed this week.
While we support affordable housing in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, such housing should not be substandard or hazardous and should not endanger art studio buildings.
First we ask everyone to contact Steve Fletcher.

Questions to ask Steve or your Ward 3 Council Member. Pick your favorites!
Why is he not listening to the Neighborhoods concerns or returning phone calls and emails?
Is it really smart to put high-density low income housing on industrial contaminated land and next to working railroad tracks?
Why are there no setbacks from the street and California Building that residential zoning would require?
How does a family residential space not have an on-site outdoor play area?
Why are you NOT requiring breaking the development into at least two buildings like the 2040 Plan Policy 5 requires?
Second we need to go after LS Black Construction and make them realize we don’t want their development. Call or contact them by email
