At the April 3 meeting of CNO’s Land Use & Housing committee, over 150 residents discussed plans to redevelop a major property at the 3rd busiest light rail station on the Hiawatha line. (Find a related article on the meeting and redevelopment plans this page.) Over 15,000 volunteer hours have gone into shaping plans for the property over the last 15 years, and CNO is organizing significant new opportunities for residents to shape what gets built. A new working group focused on Retail at this site and throughout Corcoran will kick off on May 1 – find a related article on this page. Another new working group will work on shaping the Plaza Design and other aspects of the public realm in this area – this group will kick off on May 6 – find complete details on page 1. Additional working groups focused on sustainability and urban agriculture and bike/walk connections are in the works but not quite ready to launch. In the meantime residents are invited to monthly meetings of the Land Use & Housing committee – at 6:00pm on the first Thursday of each month at the CNO office, 3451 Cedar Ave S.
