Senate District 49 has occupied an office on the third floor of the Edina Community Center for 15 years. By November 15, we must permanently vacate that space to make way for the upgrade of the Normandale Elementary School on the floor below us. Fortunately, we have signed a lease on an office in Bloomington that should fully serve our needs.
The upcoming renovation of the Normandale Elementary School in Edina will improve the security of that facility and make other changes approved in the school funding referendum passed in 2015. In addition, the renovation will allow the relocation of school administrative and support offices.
To make room for these relocations, several tenants of the Edina Community Center had to give up their spaces. These tenants also included the local Democratic Farm Labor party organization, which had an office around the corner from our office.
Our new office is located at 10800 Normandale Blvd, at the intersection with Old Shakopee Rd in Bloomington. It will provide us with an office, a meeting area, and some storage space. Parking will be more convenient, and we will be able to access the office 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We could use your help moving furniture, office equipment, and supplies to the new office in late October, early November. Please let us know that you’re willing to help pack, move, and/or unpack by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have access to a pick-up truck or large van, that would also be very helpful in moving our larger items.
