After months of preliminary work, the Linden Hills Neighborhood Council (LHiNC) is ready to take your questions about a proposed small area plan for the neighborhood's two business nodes.
According to LHiNC, if you head down to Linden Hills Park on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 1 p.m to 4 p.m., you'll find answers to queries like:
- What is a Small Area Plan and what is the process to develop the Plan?
- What is the need for a Small Area Plan in Linden Hills?
- What is the proposed scope of the Plan?
- What are the roles of the City, LHiNC, the Small Area Plan Steering Committee and neighborhood residents?
- What is the estimated cost of the Linden Hills Small Area Plan? What Linden Hills NRP funds would be used to finance the development of the Plan? What would be the effect of reallocating NRP funds?
City staff and neighborhood volunteers will be on hand to answer even more questions.
Writing the plan will cost the neighborhood about $66,000 if it goes ahead with it. The go/no go vote happens at the next LHiNC board meeting on Oct. 9 at Linden Hills Park at 7 p.m., following public testimony.
