July 14:A Special Community Forum
The Summit University Planning Council is hosting a special community forum night to discuss the proposed zoning along the Greenline Corridor. This would impact neighbors within one-half mile of University or just about to Dayton Avenue.  This is nearly 2/3 of our neighborhood.

We want neighbors to have a chance to talk about how they feel regarding the proposed changes and be able to ask questions of the experts. For more information on the proposal, click here.

The meeting will be on July 14 from 6PM-8PM at the St.Paul College, 235 Marshall Avenue. Please RSVP on our Facebook page  here

Senior Partners Care
The financial burden of the gap left between medical bills and Medicare may keep you or a loved one from getting critical medical care needed to stay healthy. Senior Partners Care (SPC) can help. SPC is a statewide program, which began in 1973, that helps low to moderate income Medicare beneficiaries limit their out of pocket medical expenses. 

SPC has partnered with many major metropolitan area healthcare systems and hundreds of clinics and providers statewide.  Some key metro providers are Fairview, HCMC, Park Nicollet/Methodist, North Memorial, HealthEast, and Minnesota Oncology.  Partners agree to accept Medicare as full payment on Medicare covered services for SPC members. 

Senior Partners Care members must be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, cannot have a supplemental medical insurance policy (though they can have a Part D Drug only policy), are not on Medical Assistance, and meet the program's financial guidelines:  $1,961.00 in gross income per month for a single person and $2,655.00 per month for a couple, and liquid assets of under $48,500 per household regardless of size.  This excludes a house and one car.

For program details and applications visit www.seniorcommunity.org/programs or call (952) 767-0665.
