19-179: Public Notice

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) is reviewing Permit Application 19-179 for conformance with the District’s rules. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is proposing to re-grade and repave the existing tennis court located at 5200 Newton Avenue South in the City of Minneapolis. MCWD regulates the project under our Erosion Control, Floodplain Alteration, and Stormwater Management rules. Stormwater runoff from the site’s new impervious surface will be directed to a raingarden to treat for water quality and quantity controls and there will be a net gain in floodplain storage capacity of approximately 850 cubic yards.

Contact Heidi Quinn with questions or concerns regarding the permit at or 952-641-4504.

Permits applicators are reviewed by staff for compliance with District rules. Interested parties may request that the permit be considered by the MCWD Board of Managers. Requests for board consideration must be in writing and received at the MCWD offices prior to 4:30 PM, June 25th, 2019.
