2011 Historic Resources Survey Public Meeting – Downtown
February 28, 2011 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
CPED-Planning is conducting a historic resource survey in following neighborhoods: St. Anthony West, Marcy Holmes, Como, Downtown West, Downtown East, Sumner Glenwood, and portions of Bryn Mawr, Harrison, Near North, North Loop, and Prospect Park neighborhoods to assess the potential for historic properties. This project is called the Central Core Historic Resources Survey.
The City was first surveyed for historic resources in the 1970s and many of today’s designated landmarks and historic districts are a result of the original survey. Since 2001, CPED has conducted a re-survey of historic resources in Minneapolis that has been funded by grants from the Minnesota Historical Society and matched by City dollars.
The City has undertaken the re-survey because the aging of properties, changing attitudes about which types of historic resources need to be identified, e.g. historic landscapes, cultural and ethnic group resources. The survey will help achieve the City’s goal of documenting historic resources throughout the entire city over a ten-year period, which is scheduled for completion in 2011.
The purpose of the survey is to:
* Identify unknown historic properties;
* Recommend properties for further study;
* Make informed decisions about the significance and protection of historic resources;
* Develop goals and strategies for preservation as well as neighborhood planning.
The first public meetings on this project will be held in mid-February. The purpose of these first meetings is to introduce the survey project and offer an opportunity for the community to provide information and ideas about historic resources within the survey area.
Due to the distinctly different development patterns between downtown and rest of the project area two separate meeting have been scheduled to allow for more focused discussion.
* The meeting on the downtown portion of the survey area will be held on:
Monday February 28, 2011 from 4:30 – 6:00 pm, at City Hall, Room 319; 350 South 5th Street, Minneapolis
