New mobile groceries will come to East Side
Come June, East Siders could have a pop-up grocery store within walking distance of their homes.
Twin Cities Mobile Market, a project of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, will be cruising around the East Side in an old Metro Transit bus with a variety of fresh groceries on hand. The non-profit project is tentatively scheduled to start in June.

Public housing project will have affordable rents
Construction crews are finally about to begin work on Hillcrest Pointe Senior Living, a public housing facility on Cahill Avenue South and Cheney Trail in Inver Grove Heights.
The 66-unit development initially encountered protests from nearby neighbors who were concerned about the height of the proposed three-story building and worried their home values would drop once it was built.
