Zoning and Planning Appealapalooza

Tickets are $0, or whatever your free time costs you

Minneapolis’ hottest festival is Appealapalooza, coming up at the Zoning and Planning Committee on February 15th, featuring two appealing acts: the appeal against Sons of Norway, and the appeal for Rex 26. Want to help? Follow the links below for details!

🎉 Support Sons of Norway
Support Rex 26

Supporting these projects only requires sending two emails with a couple sentences in support (use our handy talking points to help), or you can show up to the Z&P Committee meeting on February 15th at 10AM. Both projects have similar points in favor: they’re in walkable neighborhoods, on transit, and near to jobs, transit, bikeways, schools, restaurants, parks and grocery stores. Precisely where people need to live. Your support may go a long way!

2/15: Appealapalooza was a success!

We had about 6 people show up to speak in favor, and tons of emails were sent in in support over the two projects at various phases. Your support helped!

  • 🎉 The appeal of Sons of Norway was denied, and the rezoning request was approved. This project will proceed as planned.
  • The appeal for Rex 26 was denied, however the project will continue at the previously planned scale, including the grocery store. The developer also proposed self-funding 3 affordable housing units at 60% AMI, but with an unsuccessful appeal it’s unsure if they will be able to do this anymore. Womp womp.
