Humboldt Greenway presentation at SCNA August 11

General Neighborhood Meeting

In the late 1990s residents attended a large number of input meetings about the redevelopment of Humboldt Ave. N. Development began shortly thereafter. Nearly 100 former small homes and business sites were used to begin the new development called the Humboldt Greenway. New single family homes were built from 53rd Ave. N to 51st Ave. N, and townhomes from 49th to 47th Aves. N. When the housing bust hit by 2007, the developer fell into foreclosure and development stopped. The City of Minneapolis and Hennepin County reacquired the properties to help preserve continuity of the development and the area.

Last month, the City of Minneapolis sent out a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the development of the Humboldt Greenway. This month at our August 11 General Neighborhood Meeting at Creekview Park, 5001 Humboldt Ave N, we will have presentations on the proposals. We invite the community to attend this free presentation and give your feedback. Any questions contact SCNA at our email/phone listed above.

SCNA sponsors new bike in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of ADA

SCNA heard about the Camden Care Center’s need for improved health of its residents and increased participation in the community. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the American Disability Act, SCNA reached out and partnered with Camden Care Center this year and presented them a three-wheeled accessible bike so residents could get involved in the community and our annual Tour de Camden event!
