The easternmost neighborhoods in this community, SumnerGlenwood and Near North, are part of a broad redevelopment plan being undertaken by the City of Minneapolis. The result of the settlement of a 1995 lawsuit, known as "Hollman," this plan requires Minneapolis to demolish ghettos of public housing and replace them with mixed-income housing, including 750 subsidized rental units. While the long-term plan for Sumner-Glenwood may be promising, the current situation-razed buildings, empty lots, displaced residents, has been a source of frustration for many. There are almost no residential buildings left in Sumner-Glenwood, though there is a library. The historic 1915 Sumner library is a church-like sanctuary sitting amid vacant lots and the traffic roaring by on Highway 55. It houses the largest black history collection in Minneapolis. Lovely reminders of Minneapolis' proud past, the so-called "painted ladies' can be found on the 1500 block of Dupont Avenue (past acres of just north of Plymouth Road. Here you'll find National Historic Register Victorians being restored and preserved.
More housing is being demolished in the Harrison neighborhood, which is just north of Bassett Creek to Highway 55, adjacent to the Bryn Mawr neighborhood. There is considerable dispute about whether the southern part of the Harrison neighborhood should remain residential or be zoned for light industrial use.
