FATHER HENNEPIN PARK

Pillsbury A-Mill (Performance Hall)

Join the Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Association in its second meeting that will discuss how $1.5 million might be spent in our neighborhood parks:
 

Jon Duesman (MPRB Project Manager) and Cliff Swenson (MPRB Director of Design & Project Management) will present the current design of Father Hennepin Park that the MPRB could start implementing in early 2021. The team would like to discuss the possible use of Park Dedication Fees that Marcy-Holmes current holds, and how these funds could complement funding already set aside for the park. 

Please review the documents already generated for the park below:

Father Hennepin Master Plan (from the Central Riverfront Plan, 2015)

Father Hennepin Design Document (2019)

SPECIAL SCREENING AT THE ST. ANTHONY MAIN THEATRE

Sun, March 15, 2020, 4 PM
St. Anthony Main Theatre

The story of the 40-day and 40-night occupation of Dinkytown, from April through May 1970, The Dinkytown Uprising was voted "Audience Favorite" at the 2015 Minneapolis/St.Paul International Film Festival.

Ostensibly a protest against building another national franchised hamburger joint in Dinkytown, the protests were seen as a stand-off against another invasion by corporate America. The 96-minute documentary recalls some half-dozen key participants—who they were then and what has become of them today. 

10th AVENUE BRIDGE CLOSURE

The 10th Avenue SE Bridge will close to all traffic (vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians) in March 2020 for repairs. The bridge will be closed and detours will be in effect for approximately 18 months, until Summer 2021.For additional information, please visit the city's website:
