Our neighborhood commercial strip is one of the earliest in the State of Minnesota.  Your West 7th Business Association presents a wide variety of services that strengthens our commercial and community interests and opportunities through representation, advocacy, networking, promotion, and outreach. Our Website will focus on you, our member businesses and organizations. Your services highlight an important aspect of us communicating with your customers and clients, and we are consistently looking for ways to improve this service, and welcome your input.

Join us for our version of Breakfast at Mary’s Claddagh Coffee Café: 8 – 9:30 a.m.

We will be having conversation, transit update and hopefully new prospective member guests. Our member campaign is in full gear and this would be an easy time to do your renewal if not already sent in.

A neighborhood meeting hosted by the Riverview Study will be held on August 10, 5-7 p.m. at Nova Classical Academy, 1455 Victoria Way

The Policy Advisory Committee of the Ramsey County Riverview Transit Committee confirmed on July 13 that all LRT transit options are removed from further consideration by the study.

It can’t be overstated the impact our campaign opposing LRT had on the PAC and staff. One PAC member was happy to offer that “ we listened to the public”. Thank you to all who helped in every way. But, guess what, Streetcars have been substituted for the Train. Our position regarding transit has called for bus improvements as described in our letter of March 8, 2016 and it remains the same.  In response, your Board has approved and sent a new letter clearly restating our position and reasons why.  A neighborhood meeting hosted by the Riverview Study will be held on August 10, 5-7 p.m. at Nova Classical Academy, 1455 Victoria Way. Come and speak for your views.

It’s that time of year!
