Wirth House Re-use Buried in Committee

Last Wednesday’s (March 16) Park Board meeting was a sad one for those who value our Minneapolis Parks’ unique history and the use of the Wirth House as an interpretive center.

I was at the meeting and watched in amazement at how skilllfully Commissioner Bob Fine, with the assistance of Board President Jon Olson, orchestrated the demise of the interpretive proposal by unnecessarily sending it into committee where it will be neglected and die.
