A small number of commercial districts are located here, as well as an industrial corridor located along the Northern portion of 49th Avenue. The green spaces and parkland around the Shingle Creek are lovely, with areas for picnics, fishing and boating – a great place for anyone with a love of the outdoors. Like many other Minneapolis neighborhoods, Shingle Creek created an action group that works with other local organizations to refurbish and renovate older homes, with the intent to create more affordable housing in the area. A Homebuyer’s Assistance Program has also been created to attract first-time home-buyers. This organization is also committed to protecting and preserving natural environments, like the neighborhood’s namesake, and creating youth-oriented programs.
