Coon Rapids

Green expo is coming April 6

Coon Rapids will host a “green expo” featuring sustainable living options on April 6 at the Coon Rapids Civic Center, 11155 Robinson Drive.

The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day and will feature local businesses, services and speakers.


Spring Lake Park

City received no bids on residential lots

The price was not right.

The city of Spring Lake Park received no bids for four city-owned home lots on McKinley Street. It had set a minimum bid of $70,000 per lot and required that a home must be built on each lot within two years of purchase.

The city received feedback from just two interested parties during the advertisement period, with one indicating the minimum price was too high.

The four lots, zoned single-family residential, are between 12,000 and 13,000 square feet.
