DNR Seeks Comments on EAW for Upper Post Flats at Fort Snelling State Park

Property News

The DNR is proposing to lease the Upper Post in Fort Snelling State Park for 99 years to Fort Snelling Leased Housing Associates, an affiliate of Dominium Development & Acquisition, for rehabilitation into rental housing. Up to 215 housing units would be constructed within the existing footprints of 26 historic buildings.

The units would be rented to individuals and families that meet state requirements for moderate income housing (incomes up to 60 percent of the area median), with a preference for military veterans and their families. New construction to support the housing units would include a commons area with an outdoor swimming pool, sidewalks, landscaping, parking facilities, new streets, stormwater infiltration basins, utility improvements, and reconstruction of existing streets and driveways.

The agency will take comments during a 30-day public review period ending at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 25.

A copy of the EAW is available online on the project page. A hard copy may be requested by calling 651-259-5110.
