Post-tornado services are shifting location

  • May 30, 2011 - 10:29 PM

Farview Park services offered to residents of north Minneapolis affected by the May 22 tornado will be scaled back Tuesday as the city turns its focus to longer-term recovery.

The city said Monday on its website that the park's Disaster Recovery Center will be open noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday but offer fewer services.

However, Metro Transit will provide free shuttle service to other sites that will now offer direct assistance. The shuttles will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Tuesday through Friday and circulate between 14 stops in north Minneapolis and downtown.

Fliers with the list of stops and service providers can be obtained at five north Minneapolis Parks -- Farview, Jordan, Folwell, Willard, North Commons -- or by calling 311.

As of Sunday, nearly 5,000 people had received help at the Disaster Recovery Center at Farview Park. As service providers move back to their headquarters, residents affected by the tornado will keep getting aid through this shuttle bus service, the city said.
