If you would like to send one email to all of the Council members you can copy and paste the email addresses below into your email editor:
There are no new taxes imposed on the City of Minneapolis
The Convention Center tax that will be utilized is a State tax, not a City tax
As part of the negotiated package, the Target Center will come off of City payroll which will lower property taxes for Minneapolis residents
The new stadium will be used all year round for events which will help support the $1 Billion Hospitality industry in Minneapolis
It’s important we finish strong; we don’t want to overlook the Minneapolis City Council! Please reach out to its members and ask your friends to do the same! Two votes of approval by Minneapolis turn our stadium dreams into reality!
