Minnetonka is in the midst of preparing its 2040 Housing Plan, to support anticipated population expansion of our city and metro region. A dilemma for all communities is the increased cost of housing, making it unaffordable to many of our city’s workers, including retail workers, teachers, police, fireman, nurses and service providers, as well as our retirees.
This program is free and open to the public.
Following the public program, LWV MEPH members will hold our annual business meeting and board election. Although several board members are interested in continuing, we have many openings. Being an LWV local league board member is a great way to get more involved in our community. Please contact Peggy Kvam, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in serving. The term is 1 year.
All are invited to renew their membership dues at the meeting. We have added a new membership level, Household, for $100, so encourage your spouse to join! New members who joined since January 2018 are credited as 2018/19 paid, and do not need to renew until May 2019.
A buffet lunch including sandwich tray, chips and dessert will be served after the business meeting, during which we will discuss your ideas for next year’s programming for our Centennial Year. Please RSVP for lunch to Arlene Nystuen, 952-934-2133 or email@example.com. The cost will be $6, payable on May 5th.
