St. Louis Park’s FEMA Money
Here’s something new on my radar, picked up at the weekly Edina Realty – City Lakes meeting this morning: what’s going to happen to Meadowbrook Golf course in St. Louis Park?
As locals know, the city-owned course suffered massive, sustained flooding last Summer.
What they may not know (or at least I didn’t): the city received mega-bucks from FEMA to help with the clean-up.
Range of Options
No doubt any changes to Meadowbrook — if they come at all — are years away.
But, the range of options apparently include:
–Expanding public housing, which is currently just to the north on Excelsior Blvd.
–Turning Meadowbrook into a park (at least the parts that aren’t low-lying);
–Turning it into a Community Center for outdoor weddings and other events (nice!).
Of course, given Meadowbrook’s proximity to Hopkins’ Interlachen Park (just west) and Edina’s Rolling Green neighborhood (south) — both “high-demand neighborhoods,” as they say — you’d guess at least a few local upper bracket builders would have a teensy bit of interest, too.
