Streetcar Plan Open House

A series of three open house meetings is scheduled to give the public an opportunity to learn about modern streetcar and enhanced bus options being considered on a key route through the city, and to share their ideas on improving transit service. The City of Minneapolis is examining options to improve public transit along the busy corridor that includes Nicollet Avenue through south Minneapolis and downtown and Central Avenue in Northeast.

The open houses will provide an overview of the Nicollet-Central Transit Alternatives Study, which is just beginning and will continue into 2013. The study will identify a preferred transit enhancement that could serve as the first phase of a longer-ranger vision for transit service in the corridor.

Hollywood Open House Sept 29th

From ANA President Nic Baker:

There will be a free open house of the Hollywood Theater on Saturday, September 29, from 2pm to 6pm. As you may have heard, a developer is seriously considering purchase of the theater for renovation, although many steps would have to take place before that becomes a reality. Anyway, the interior is definitely in bad shape, but maintains the glory of its earlier days. If you haven't done the tour, it is well worth the trip.

We need volunteers to staff the front door and interior. If you have an hour or so to spare during those times, please contact Miles Mercer, Senior Project Coordinator, at 612-673-5043.
