Parking Lot Design Proposal from Norway House

September 19, 2020

The Mindekirken Council and Mindekirken Foundation Board have been working diligently over the last 7 months, not only with their regular duties, but also with special meetings to discuss and work out details over a proposal by Norway House to develop the Mindekirken Foundation properties (located on the corner of Elliot Avenue South and 21st Street East) and part of the Church property into a new shared parking area in conjunction with their plan to build a new event center on their property. Please click on the link below to view and download a copy of the design as it stands so far (which may undergo more changes before we approve it and as it goes through the city processes). There will be a question and answer session regarding this design on Sunday, September 20th during the Zoom kirkekaffe hour at 1 PM. One or two more will be scheduled. You will eventually receive a letter in the mail regarding voting on the final recommendation of the proposal by the Mindekirken Council, which will also include an easement agreement regarding the use of the properties.
