In a unanimous vote at last night’s housing committee meeting, North Minneapolis’ Hawthorne neighborhood agreed to partner with MinneAppleseed to build a Passive House. The committee vowed to work with MinneAppleseed on the design. The next steps are now to find and secure a lot, and start design in earnest. This important step puts MinneAppleseed and the Appleseed House on track for a 2009 groundbreaking.
I would like to extend my thanks to the housing committee for being open-minded and embracing MinneAppleseed’s ideas for North Minneapolis. I look forward to working with them.
