Bloomington Lyndale Ave. Retrofit Launched

Lyndale-Retrofit.jpgThe Lyndale Avenue Retrofit project aims to transform Lyndale Avenue into a thriving, walkable, mixed-use corridor that serves as an amenity to attract and retain residents and businesses.  Hennepin County is supporting the City of Bloomington to define a vision for the future of Lyndale Avenue in Bloomington. Partners want to hear from area businesses and residents about potential designs for this city-owned street.

Earlier events and open house sessions were held in January and February, and another series is planned for March 2 - 3. 

Open Studio:  Drop in for Open Studio to observe, ask questions, and engage with members of the Stantec design team as they work.

Monday March 2, noon-6 p.m.
Tuesday March 3, 9 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m.

Main event: Tuesday, March 3: Come share your input at a garden-themed interactive workshop, where you can "plant" ideas to make Lyndale Avenue more attractive and vibrant. Bring teens and children to enjoy activities designed just for them.

Open House: 5-8 p.m.
Presentations: 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

800 West 98th Street  (in Clover Center)

    I attended the first community event and then the follow up meeting March 3rd. People eagerly talked to staff and wrote suggestions on post-it notes. Want more green spaces, community spaces, affordable housing along a walkable Lyndale Avenue. Eric Johnson said they said they wanted to create something “unique & authentic”. While I’m glad the city does NOT plan to use eminent domain to force these changes, it also appears the input is useless. The first project popping up on this corridor? A 4-story U-Haul self-storage development. Hmmm. Hardly what the city had talked about and HARDLY what residents wanted more of. And sadly, the leader of this initiative, Eric Johnson, no longer works for the city. Sadly, I’m feeling like all these meetings are just to get resident to THINK the city is listening and cares what we think.
