VETERAN'S PARK SIGN VARIANCE
Indigo Signs, on behalf of the Richfield Parks and Recreation Department, is requesting two variances in order to replace an existing freestanding sign at Veteran’s Park that is located in front of the outdoor pool building, near the intersection of 66th Street and Park Avenue. The replacement sign would contain a dynamic display. The sign code only allows one dynamic display per property and there is already one existing sign with a dynamic display on the other side of Veteran’s Park, located at the intersection of Portland Avenue and 64th Street. Therefore, the addition of a second dynamic display requires a variance.
The second variance that the applicant is requesting is to allow the property to exceed the maximum allowable total area of all freestanding signage on site. All freestanding signage on site is limited to 100 square feet. While each of the four freestanding signs at Veteran’s Park meet the individual size and height requirements , they cumulatively exceed the 100 square foot maximum by 39 square feet. The proposed replacement sign is smaller and would reduce total square footage to 130 square feet.

MWF Properties received approval for a 4-story, 55 unit, affordable multi-family residential building. Units would be for those earing up to 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI) with five units for residents earning up to 50% of the AMI. Two of the units will be for those earning up to 30% AMI. The development plans were approved at the May 10, 2022 City Council meeting. A one-year time extension was approved by the City Council on April 25, 2023.
PROJECTS UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Enclave Development, LLC is constructing a 5-story, mixed-use building that includes 159 rental apartments and approximately 7,000 square feet of ground floor retail space at the northeast corner of Lyndale Avenue and 65th Street. The development will carry out the Comprehensive Plan’s vision of a vibrant and active city center featuring a mix of uses. Additionally, the development will contribute 15% of the available Tax Increment to the Housing and Redevelopment Fund, as well as reserve 10 two-bedroom units for households earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income. The development plans were approved at the April 27, 2021 City Council Meeting.
MSP Commercial is a construction company that relocated their offices from Eagan to 6436 Penn Avenue. The company did an extensive remodel of the building - both exterior and interior - to convert the space from a wholesale business to professional offices. The freestanding sign was moved to a better location (that doesn't conflict with utilities) and the vehicular access to Penn Avenue was combined with the liquor store's access, for simplified circulation and traffic flow.
