Ten planned Habitat homes in Minnetonka are in jeopardy of moving forward with the city, and we need your help this Monday, May 6!

Here's the background. Last year, we completed our first Habitat home in Minnetonka in over 20 years. Now we're hoping to start the development of five twinhomes on land owned by Minnetonka Mills Church. But after years of planning alongside city staff and making major adjustments to satisfy community feedback, we just learned that city staff are recommending the project not move forward.

Frankly, we're shocked.

But you can help! It's ultimately up to the Planning Commission and City Council to vote on our project at two hearings in the next few weeks. If affordable housing supporters like you show up en masse, we can demonstrate the broad support for more Habitat homes in Minnetonka and encourage the city to allow the Twinhomes to move forward.

The Minnetonka City Council is holding a public hearing this Monday, May 6.

Will you attend the hearings to support meaningful change through advocacy?

When: May 6, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.

Where: Minnetonka Community Center

14600 Minnetonka Blvd., Minnetonka, MN 55345

All we're asking Habitat supporters to do is show up in your Habitat gear or wear the color blue to demonstrate your support. Stickers and Habitat swag will be available as well. There will be an opportunity for public testimony, and we'd ask Minnetonka residents to consider speaking in support of Habitat.

We're confident we have a solid plan that aligns with Minnetonka's goals for expanding affordable housing. If you'd like to learn more, here are some resources:

Hope to see you there!
