Speak Up: Planning for 61st & North Site

Plan Commission Meeting
Monday, March 12, 7:00PM at City Hall


You have a voice in shaping East Towne’s future. Now is the time to speak up. Tens of thousands of dollars have been spent to develop a strategic plan for North Avenue, but questions and decisions remain.

The Blockbuster store is out on 61st Street and North Avenue, but an O’Reilly Auto Parts store is ready to move in. Does O’Reilly get your thumbs up or your thumbs down? Are you happy and relieved the building will soon be occupied? Or were you hoping something different would anchor Tosa East Towne?

You can take a look at the strategic plan for North Avenue. A link is provided below under More Information and Resources. Then tell city leaders what you think.

The City Plan Commission meeting is this Monday, March 12th at 7pm. It’s located on the 2nd floor in the Common Council Chambers at City Hall on 76th and North Avenue.
