LINDEN HILLS HONORS BONNIE BOLTON
Bonnie Bolton, a LHiNC board member and very active member of the Linden Hills community, passed away unexpectedly on June 30. At LHiNC’s July board meeting, the board and community paid tribute to Bonnie. Zumbro owner Barb Nei, who worked with Bonnie on the LHBA, said, “Bonnie was a delightful force of nature, immensely talented, generous with her time, and a ton of fun. She knew the true meaning of community, and shared it, with grace, hard work, and great humor, with everyone around her. I will miss Bonnie and so will Linden Hills.”
44th and VINCENT PROJECT ON HOLD
In April, Good Neighbor Homes and Streetfront Development attended LHiNC’s Zoning and Housing Committee meeting to share a proposal for a 38-unit apartment building at 44th Street West and Vincent. The project is currently on hold, after a Hennepin County District Court ruling in June suspended the Minneapolis 2040 plan, the city’s long-range development plan, following a litigation challenge about its potential environmental impact. The developers had planned to present the project to the city planning commission in July; they now expect that presentation will be pushed back by 30 to 60 days. The developers are committed to presenting to LHiNC’s Zoning and Housing Committee, prior to that public hearing, once the date is set.
