Community meetings will be held in parks
Lake Elmo officials plan to host four community meetings in June and July to update residents on ongoing and proposed projects. The twist is that each session will be held not in the cramped City Council chambers, but in a more informal setting: the city’s parks.
Officials hope the setting will attract more residents eager to learn about the city’s development plans, which call for the addition of new businesses, streets, and an additional 1,200 homes over the next few years.
The meetings will be held Thursdays from 6-7:30 p.m. at the following locations: on June 12 at Carriage Station Park at the intersection of Marquess Trail N. and Stillwater Boulevard N.; June 26 at Reid Park, 11430 30th St. N.; July 10 at Pebble Park, 8160 Lake Jane Trail N.; and July 24 at Stonegate Park, 750 Jasmine Av. N.
Business association plans picnic
A community picnic and business luncheon will be held June 12 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Oakdale Fire Station No. 1, 5000 Hadley Av. N. The free lunch is sponsored by the city and the Oakdale Business and Professional Association. Live music will be supplied by Catalyzed Effect and Rob Olson and Sweet Mash.
The event will be held rain or shine, organizers said. For more information, contact Marc Cove of Platinum Bank at 651-332-5222 or visit the association website at www.obpa-mn.com.
