City staff have been working with IPG Living to identify a long-term solution to the structural deficiencies of the ramp and reviewed a concept for a new ramp and infill apartment building.
In response to the imminent garage closure, architects working with the property owner have now prepared conceptual plans to provide parking for residents through a surface parking lot. In order to construct replacement parking stalls through either a new structure or surface lot, there will need to be City land use and permitting review and approvals.
State Statute and City Code require a formal process, including a public hearing, for the type of review that is likely required. Notice of a public hearing will be mailed to residents and property owners within 500 feet of the site.
Once an application is submitted by the owner, information on the status of the project will be available at https://www.hopkinsmn.com/1139/Knollwood-Towers.
