To nominate someone, email district10@district10comopark.org. Give us a short description of their accomplishments or the reasons they should be honored for making Como a better place to live, work, or play. Send us your nomination no later than Tues., Dec. 11. The District 10 Board will evaluate nominees at its Dec. 18 meeting.

Meeting focuses on school expansions
District 10’s Land Use Committee will hold an additional meeting on Thur., Nov. 15. The meeting will focus exclusively on variances and other issues related to the proposed expansions of Twin Cities German Immersion School, 1031 Como Ave., and Higher Ground Academy, which intends to purchase the current Metro Deaf School property at 1471 Brewster, and build an addition so it can move grades 7-12 to the site in August 2019.
