Uptown Hamel Open House – Feb 20th

The City of Medina is partnering with the University of Minnesota – Humphrey
School of Public Affairs, to help revitalize the Uptown Hamel area. The goal of this
partnership is to create an attractive, pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use town center that
blends retail, office, specialty shops, residential, and gathering places into a unique
community. Students will help identify potential design and development standards
that will support improvements and new development in Uptown Hamel. To
accomplish these goals, stakeholders will be engaged by the students to determine
what standards are most consistent with Medina’s existing community character,
along with the goals and objectives of the new 2040 Comprehensive Plan for Uptown

The first engagement opportunity will be held on Wednesday, February 20th from 5
p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Hamel Community Building, 3200 Mill Drive. This open
house will be a chance to learn more about the Uptown Hamel project and to provide
your opinions and vision of the area. This open house will be open to everyone, so
friends and family are welcome! Light refreshments and snacks will be provided at the
open house. If you have any questions or comments regarding the Uptown Hamel
project, you can email Nick Kieser at Nick.Kieser@medinamn.gov or call 763-473-
