Courtesy notice of debris removal at 3009 Park Avenue South, Minneapolis
Debris removal at the Pauline Fjelde Residence at 3009 Park Avenue will begin next Monday morning, February 8, 2010 at 7:30 a.m. The City of Minneapolis is contracting with Veit Construction to carry out the operation. Members of the public will not be allowed on site during the demolition operation, but may observe from offsite locations. A staff member from the CPED-Preservation and Design team will be at the site and in direct communication with the wrecking contractor throughout the debris removal operation. If necessary, and with the express permission of Veit, CPED staff may be allowed on site periodically to examine debris for items of possible historical value as specifically relates to the life of Pauline Fjelde.
Veit will have control of the demolition site throughout the operation and have all authority to determine who may have access to the site including the property owner and/or City staff. A representative of 8th Ward Council member Elizabeth Glidden will also be in attendance so that he/she can convey information from the public to CPED staff. If items of possible historical significance are found amid the debris, some or all of them may be transported off site and stored by the City of Minneapolis for subsequent evaluation of authenticity and historic value.
If such an evaluation is needed, it will be conducted in conjunction with the property owner. Items salvaged form the site will remain the property of the current property owner unless and until other arrangements are made between the property owner and the City of Minneapolis at some future date. No such arrangements will be considered at the site during debris removal.
A summary of the day’s proceedings will be made to the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission at their regularly scheduled meeting of February 16th, at 4:30 p.m. in Room 317 City Hall.
This activity does not require formal legal notice. This notice is being sent as a courtesy extended by the City of Minneapolis to neighborhood and preservation representatives. Legal notice of the upcoming HPC meeting is sent separately using the standard procedures defined in the Minneapolis Code of Ordinances.
