Shingle Creek Elementary Re-use Options: A Feasibility Study and Impact Analysis.

Arbit, David

Bounded on the north side and east side by Creekview Park, on the west side by Oliver Avenue North, and on the south side by 50th Avenue North, the Shingle Creek Elementary School (SCE) has been educating children since 1958. SCE previously housed kindergarten through fifth grade educational programs for the Minneapolis Public School District (MPS). SCE is situated in the Shingle Creek Neighborhood of the Camden Community in North Minneapolis. The SCE property is a 166,422 sq. ft. land parcel in an area zoned R1A for low density, single family dwellings and other developments with a minimum lot size of 5,000 sq. feet. MPS made the decision to close SCE as a result of dwindling enrollment, budgetary constraints, and other factors. The Shingle Creek Neighborhood Association (SCNA) would prefer to avoid demolition and a transfer to the private sector. SCNA shares the community's desire to maintain the SCE parcel as a public asset.
