51st Avenue/Frontage Road Improvements
The City of Brooklyn Center's Capital Improvement Plan identifies a potential street reconstruction project in this neighborhood. This project is tentatively scheduled for 2018. A feasibility was undertaken to evaluate the need for the project and estimated cost of reconstructing the streets and utilities. A meeting was held on October 24, 2017, to gather additional information and solicit input from neighborhood residents.

This project is in conjunction with Brooklyn Boulevard Corridor Project - Phase 1 in 2018.
In November 2017, the City Council accepted the City Engineer's Feasibility Report, declared costs to be assessed and called for two public hearings on December 11, 2017. Property owners were mailed a letter detailing the project and special assessment information along with the Notices of Public Hearings and a Feasibility Summary.
On December 11, 2017, public hearings were held regarding ordering improvements and authorizing preparation of plans and specifications and acceptance of the levy roll certifying special assessments. Property owners are able to pay their assessments before September 30, 2018, without interest. From October 1 through November 21, 2018, property owners may pay the assessments with interest calculated from October 1, through the date of payment. Special Assessments not paid by the end of the business day on November 21, 2018, will then roll to Hennepin County property taxes and are payable over a ten (10) year period, beginning in 2019.
