The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is proposing to lease the Upper Post in Fort Snelling State Park for 99 years to Fort Snelling Leased Housing Associates I, LLLP, an affiliate of Dominium Development & Acquisition, LLC, for rehabilitation into rental housing. Up to 215 housing units would be constructed within the existing footprints of 26 historic buildings.
The units would be rented to individuals and families that meet state requirements for moderate income housing (incomes up to 60% of area median), with a preference for military veterans and their families. New construction to support the housing units would include a commons area with outdoor swimming pool, sidewalks, landscaping, parking facilities, new streets, stormwater infiltration basins, utility improvements, and reconstruction of existing streets and driveways.
Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW)
The DNR has prepared an EAW for the project. Public notice of the availability of this EAW for public comment is in the August 26, 2019 EQB Monitor. A 30-day public review and comment period will be open from August 26, 2019 until 4:30 p.m., September 25, 2019.
Comments on the EAW must be received by Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 4:30 p.m.
People who submit comments will receive a copy of the decision document, which includes responses to comments. Because all comments and related information are part of the EAW public record, commenters' names and email or postal addresses will also be published and publicly available.
Electronic or email comments may be sent to [email protected].
Please use “Upper Post Flats” in the subject line.
