Crossroad Pointe Summary
In 2006 and 2013, the City purchased three blighted properties consisting of a restaurant, gas station, and car wash.  Buildings were removed, and the site marketed as “Crossroad Pointe”.
In 2015, the City entered into a predevelopment agreement with a developer for a 100+ unit apartment building on a portion of the site.  The agreement expired in 2016, and the City began marketing the property again.
On August 21, 2017, the City Council considered proposals from three developers; (1) 200 + unit senior apartments; (2) 200+ unit apartments; and (3) 100+ unit apartments and specialty retail (indoor shooting range). The City Council selected the third option, by INH Properties and Heartland Gun Club & Range.

On September 21, 2017, INH Properties and Heartland Gun Club & Range held a neighborhood meeting.
On January 8, 2018, the City entered into a predevelopment agreement with INH Properties.
On February 26, 2018, the City Council considered an Ordinance Amendment that would allow an indoor shooting range within city limits.  Many residents spoke in opposition to the proposed shooting range, and the Council removed that provision from the amendment, hence, the proposed shooting range was removed from the Crossroad Pointe project.
On June 4, 2018, INH Properties/Trident Development proposed two options; (1) a 63-unit apartment building and Kwik Trip convenience store; or (2) a 135-unit apartment building.  Prior to the Council selecting an option to pursue, the Council directed the developer and the City to hold a neighborhood meeting.
On Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 6:30 PM at City Hall, 2401 Mounds View Blvd,  a Neighborhood Meeting will be held.    
At a future City Council meeting, the Council will provide direction to the developer of which option to pursue.  Whichever option, the project will require a number of public hearings prior to construction taking place.  The City’s website will be updated with any significant news.
