34th Avenue S Reconstruction Project Tracker

New – Third Community Input Session scheduled for January 2018.

Monday, January 22, 2018
6:30 – 8:00 pm
Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church – 5011 31st Ave S
FB Event

City staff will be present to share project updates and answer questions throughout the meeting. The meeting is co-hosted with Council Member Andrew Johnson (Ward 12), Council Member-Elect Jeremy Schroeder (Ward 11), and the City of Minneapolis Government.


The City of Minneapolis proposes to reconstruct 34th Avenue S. between E. Minnehaha Parkway and E. 58th Street. The proposed 1.37 mile project is scheduled to occur over the course of the 2018 construction season and will consist of improvements to the roadway, sidewalk and utilities. City staff is currently in the preliminary stages of planning and design for the project, which will be accompanied by community outreach activities that will help inform and guide design concepts.

The project encompasses the entire right-of-way and will address deteriorating pavement conditions by reconstructing the pavement surface, installing new curb and gutter, and sidewalks. The project is also planned to include ADA compliant pedestrian walkways, needed utility improvements, curb extensions, new signage and pavement markings. The project will also include trees planted in the boulevard and pedestrian level lighting.

NENA Welcomes New At Large Board Member

In November, Jerome Evans of the Minnehaha neighborhood was appointed to fill a recently vacated At Large seat on the Board of Directors. Jerome is a part of the NENA’s Finance and Fundraising Committee and leads the Events Team.

Jerome shared, “My experiences in the neighborhood has been profoundly positive! I moved to Minneapolis from Atlanta and, while I do still love the South, living here has allowed me to experience natural recreation areas like Lake Nokomis Park and Minnehaha Park for the first time. It’s a lovely and very livable neighborhood!”

During his time on the NENA Board, he hopes, “for the community to feel more connected. I’d also like for the neighborhood to have a large event or point of pride that can differentiate us from the other neighborhoods in the cities. I would like to see us develop more programs for our neighbors to take advantage of, develop some earned income to further diversify our revenue stream, and start producing some more branded items for our neighbors to show off!

As the leader of the Fundraising Events Team I intend to be a very visible and audible presence at most NENA events. Therefore my primary communication style will be face to face. That said, I will also work with the Communications Team to advance our culture of fundraising through social media posts, articles in the quarterly newsletter, and through our website.”

We are glad that Jerome has joined the NENA team!

NENA Welcomes New Morris Park Board Member

In September, Danielle Isaacson of Morris Park was appointed to fill a recently vacated seat on the Board of Directors. Danielle has been co-chair of the Green Initiatives Committee since 2015.

Danielle has been a Morris Park resident for almost three years, and during this time, she has grown to greatly appreciate the neighborhood, its residents, and its unique attributes.

Danielle said, “My primary hope and goal for NENA is to increase resident awareness and participation in NENA’s programs and committees. NENA has wonderful opportunities for residents to get involved and make meaningful changes in their neighborhood. NENA also provides valuable services to homeowners and renters. I would like to see residents become more engaged, either by taking advantage of NENA programming or by becoming involved as volunteers, committee members, etc.

During my Board term I will continue my role as the Green Initiatives Committee co-chair and as a member of the Food Garden. Through these two groups I have had the opportunity to meet and engage with residents via projects that are aimed to improve the neighborhood and environment. I have greatly enjoyed my role with these groups and look forward to the community engagement opportunities with both during my Board term. The knowledge and connections I build as a member of the Board will also help me better support and contribute to the Green Initiatives Committee and the Food Garden.”

We are glad that Danielle has joined the NENA team!
