The following is a KARE-11 report on Judge Dickstein’s December 20, 2013 ruling on Ostrow, Woodruff, Cohen vs. City of Minneapolis:
MINNEAPOLIS – Opponents of the Ryan Companies’ Downtown East development project in Minneapolis claimed a partial victory Friday in court.
A Hennepin County judge agreed that the City of Minneapolis can’t develop a park on its own, because only the Parks Board has that authority.
The project, which will be anchored by a Wells Fargo headquarters building and a large urban park, won’t be derailed by the judge’s order.
Developers and the City Council now have work with the Park Board on acquiring the land, which could delay the project.
