Last night at the Jeune Lune theater the North Loop board gave a presentation to area residents regarding all of the work being done in the neighborhood. Having lived here now for almost three years and looking for office space in the area I am thinking this is a good time to get involved with the neighborhood.
There are three main areas of focus:
-Planning for the September 9th social event
-Further web site development
-Creating sponsorship packages for area businesses
Planning and Zoning
-Minnesota Twins Stadium, also known as Twinsville
-Cedar Lake bike trail
-General historic nature of the area
-Development of new commercial and housing
Unlike my volunteer work in getting the University District Improvement Association up and running near the University of Minnesota the North Loop is an already well-run organization that has been in existence for more than 5 years.
If you are into marketing, web development, residential or commercial development, a baseball fan, pet owner, historic preservation among other and live or work in the North Loop consider getting involved.
The North Loop board meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month (this evening there is a meeting) in the community room at Heritage Landing, 415 North 1st Street. Meetings begin promptly at 7 pm.
