Informational Meeting: Dakota Land Use
Sunday, February 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm MST
One event on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 6:30 pm
Partnership with Habitat for Humanity
Informational meetings will be held via Zoom on Sunday, February 21, 1 p.m. or Tuesday, February 23, 6:30 p.m.
In May of 2019 the congregation overwhelmingly voted to explore the possible use of our vacant land on Dakota Avenue for affordable housing. Our partner, Habitat for Humanity, was selected in December of 2019, and we were moving forward until the COVID pandemic shutdown.
In recent months, a Ground Lease Agreement between Augustana and Habitat has been drafted. To move forward with further discussion with the City of Denver and neighborhood engagement, the congregation needs to approve the Ground Lease Agreement. This will be part of the agenda of the congregational meeting (via Zoom) on Sunday, February 28, 1 p.m.
Two opportunities will be offered (via Zoom) for congregational members to learn more about the lease and our partnership with Habitat. A presenter from their organization will explain what is being proposed and answer any questions. Please take advantage of these times to learn about this exciting project so we can all be prepared to vote at the Congregational meeting.
