Federation Update 
Board Update
At the Board’s May 10 meeting, they heard a request to support variances which would allow building 4 housing units (2 duplexes) at 300 Banfil. The board approved supporting the variances, following a recommendation from the Transportation and Land Use Committee. 
Members of Housing Equity Now Saint Paul (HENS) presented information about a rent stabilization ballot initiative for which they’re collecting signatures; if they are successful the policy would be on the ballot in November for Saint Paul voters. The proposed policy would limit rent increases to 3% in a 12-month period, with some exceptions for larger increases. The Board voted to endorse the ballot initiative, likely hosting future community and education events about it.
After hearing a request by ROK Eatery at 882 West 7th Street to support their liquor license, the Board approved waiving the 45-day notice period for the public hearing for their liquor license (a public hearing still takes place, but with fewer days’ notice) and voted to support their liquor license application. 
The Board also heard a presentation about Riverview Modern Streetcar by Ramsey County, which will be having an open house in June.
