Update from Linda Brown (05/17/99)
Dear Friends, The hearing on the land swap between MNDOT and Minneapolis Park board will be next week on May 25th 1999 at 9:0 am. Written submissions must reach Best and Flanagan one week before the hearing date[which would be tommorrow.]
Under Chapter 16, Section 13 of the Charter of the city of Minneapolis, "all interested parties" are entitled to be heard concerning a sale, swap or other transfers of lands available for park purposes. The sale, swap, or other transfers is not valid unless the judge signs off on the sale. I'm sorry this is such short notice but anyone who wants to write a letter may fax this until tomorrow.
