The Nicollet Island/East Bank Neighborhood Association is holding its annual meeting Tuesday, March 30 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 1 Lourdes Place.

Mayor R.T. Rybak and Councilmember Natalie Johnson Lee (5th Ward) will hold informal question-and-answer sessions during the meeting.

The neighborhood association, which represents residents and property owners on Nicollet Island and portions of Old St. Anthony from East Hennepin Avenue to Central Avenue Southeast, will hold board elections and briefing the community on proposed development in the neighborhood.

One of the larger projects up for discussion includes the multibuilding Pillsbury "A" Mill condo development proposed by East Bank-based developer Shafer Richardson. The 1,095-unit project planned for the riverfront is the largest pending housing development in the city.

Besides reviewing condo projects, the neighborhood group also plans to talk about new businesses in the area and Mississippi River issues, including a proposal for a hydroelectric plant at St. Anthony Falls.

The meeting will run 6-8 p.m. in the church's assembly room.
