Brooklyn Park Seeks Input on Plans To Redevelop Former Park-And-Ride Lot
Brooklyn Park city leaders continue to work with a developer to help gauge community input on what to do with the former park-and-ride lot at Noble Parkway and 95th Avenue North.
The developer, Good Neighbor Homes, will host its second engagement meeting on Thursday, Aug. 3, at Brooklyn Park City Hall.
“This community engagement process is really just the first step to get to a more refined vision and to make sure that vision is consistent with what the city council wants,” said Breanne Rothstein, the city’s economic development and housing director.
Rothstein said the planning process began when the city selected a developer for the site, which the city owns since Metro Transit built a new commuter lot across Noble from the lot. She said about 20 people came to the first engagement session in June.
“Really it is an opportunity and a gateway into the city, being there on Noble and 610,” she said. “It’s a very visible site. People will see it when they drive through the community and to the community, so we want to make sure whatever goes there is special and signature to the community.”
