Fifth (and last?) Superior Plating Task Group (SPTG5) has been called into existence by the NIEBNA Board with kickoff meeting as shown in left sidebar – this multi-neighborhood Task Group will work Lennar, which recently executed a purchase agreement to buy the site, on a major new mixed use development on this keystone site in the neighborhood.

NIEBNA October 2014 Board meeting set for October 23, 2014 – details under “Upcoming Events”.

NIEBNA Small Area Plan was approved by the fill Minneapolis City Council on October 17, 2014 – all City approvals are complete. The absolute final step is approval by the Met Council, expected sometime in 1st Quarter 2015.

Important meeting sponsored by Mill District Neighborhood Association regarding hydro-power at St. Anthony Falls was held in September 15, 2014 at Mill City Museum Meeting Flyer       Meeting Notes and Takeaways

Superior Plating Site Pollution Remediation Review and Status Meeting was held August 26, 2014 (Meeting details here) – over 70 people attended the meeting at Lourdes Church on one of the best “outdoor” days of the summer to hear elected officials, representatives of the site owners, and professional staff from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) speak and answer questions about the current status and future handling of the this famous site in the neighborhood, which has been the focus of intense pollution remediation activity over the last 8 or 9 months.

Both Jerry Stahnke, MPCA Project Manager, and Candace Sykora, MPCA Hydrologist have spent much of the last 2 years supervising the remediation.  They made a comprehensive presentation and fielded questions from the audience.  


The bottom line – in spite of numerous surprises and unexpected problems, the remediation is largely complete. Although some items remain to be done, it is now possible to contemplate redevelopment of the site into a high quality residential / retail uses. There appears to be great interest the the site in the real estate community (as there should be), so we may expect some serious  development action in the coming few months.
