As long as we’re having a conversation with public works, please ask them about the high speed movement of heavy equipment in the neighborhoods. When they were working on our street, I was shocked at how fast they would whip around the corner. Kids are going o school ow and someone is going to get hurt.

What building are getting removed for this development?
Tae Whang
32:28
Sheila, looks like there is a small SFH at the site currently.
Juan Torres
32:43
The address is 2220 38th Street E. It is a single family building at the corner.
Sheila Cracraft Fehler
33:27
Parking on site?
Tae Whang
33:34
Yes
Sheila Cracraft Fehler
35:50
The module building ‘system’ involves lots of big rig trucks parking along the building site, this will increase pressure on traffic on 38th, which I just watched on 42nd street and 32 ave
Sheila Cracraft Fehler

How much on site parking?
Megan Drake-Pereyra
36:25
Yes - but it is pretty quick. Quicker than typical construction.
Megan Drake-Pereyra
36:33
looks like 3 spaces

Thank you Megan. Correct - modular actually reduces traffic because there are less material deliveries and visits. 90% of the building is built off-site.
Megan Drake-Pereyra
38:42
I live literally right next door to the other modular construction that was built :)
Megan Drake-Pereyra
40:09
How are other costs reduced for residents? You mentioned energy efficiency. But heating/AC, gas vs electric, etc. make a big difference. So, curious how this is factored in to this.
Megan Drake-Pereyra
44:24
Great.
Carol Dungan
44:36
Is there a possibility to do something other than grass for the landscape? SO much of what we see withers and dies
Carol Dungan
46:06
We need to start phasing out grass if we’re moving toward sustainability. And would there be opportunities for gardening on site for the residents if they want?
Tae Whang
57:19
In lieu of any dedicated gardening space I do believe that the neighborhood gardening area at Sibley is being expanded and that's just a few blocks away.
Kate Gens
01:00:12
This is a great option to create more community gardens.
Megan Drake-Pereyra
01:02:20
Fruit trees?
Carol Dungan
01:03:32
Fruit trees are better in theory than in practice… a lot of it falls and rots.
Tae Whang
01:03:34
Having grown up with an apricot tree, I don't recommend having a fruit tree unless you're committed to taking care of it. The amount of odor, waste, and pests they generate if they go unkempt is serious.
Megan Drake-Pereyra
01:04:08
Okay okay - haha! No fruit trees
Carol Dungan
01:04:29
The being said, there are organizatoins that can help se up dedicated garden space. I think this is really importat
Jake Soper

GREAT glasses Candace!

Thanks for sharing about Chard Your Yard Carol! I didn't know it was a formal program. Very cool. Maybe it is something SENA could consider giving a grant to to expand subsidized beds on this side of Hiawatha?
Gordon Everest
01:25:54
Will the annual meeting be virtual?
Megan Drake-Pereyra
01:26:48
Not sure if you want businesses involved, but have you spoken to Homespun about helping with art fair?
Megan Drake-Pereyra
01:27:55
That's amazing! Way to go all involved! Sorry I couldn't be there.
