Council of Elders Meetings

Due to the coronavirus and the Governor's executive order, the Council is meeting electronically. They continue to attend to the business and care of the employees and congregation.

COUNCIL IN PRAYER

The Council of Elders has been gathering weekly to pray for North Heights and our families during this challenging time. They ask for your prayers and for God’s wisdom as they attend to important matters of the church and guide this ministry. 

LAND SALE UPDATE

September 8, 2020

On February 9, 2020 at a Special Meeting, the congregation approved the sale of 4.6 acres of land on the Northwest corner of the Arden Hills property for a minimum sum of $2,625,000 to Halley Land Corp and/or United Properties (the developer) with the right of assignment. Their proposal provided a mix (to be determined) of senior living apartments, assisted living, transitional housing and memory care. Due to economic changes and COVID-19, United Properties withdrew their interest. The “Contract of Sale” with Halley Land Corporation remains with the right of assignment.

Vincent Development LLC has proposed to replace United Properties as assignee and the developer. Parcel size, purchase price and other terms and conditions remain the same, with a projected closing the summer of 2021. Vincent’s research determined senior living apartment’s best meets the needs of the current market. They are proposing studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Mix will be considered/guided by the City of Arden Hill and the Metropolitan Council.

Your council is asking for input on this modification relating to mix of units. Please share your feedback at senior.housing@nhlc.org.  Barring considerable negative feedback, your council intends to sign a “Letter of Intent” assigning the “Contract of Sale” to Vincent Development LLC. Please provide feedback by September 20, 2020.

Note: There has been considerable interest in this project and registration on a priority list by our members to occupy the facility when it is completed. Vincent Development will work with the individuals on our Priority List.
