Mayor Jacob Frey, Red Lake Nation leaders and city of Minneapolis staff members announced a plan to transfer two parcels of land to Red Lake.

With prayer and smoldering tobacco, Minneapolis leaders ceremoniously announced a plan Thursday to transfer two city-owned parcels to the Red Lake Band of Chippewa to build an addiction treatment center.

The two lots in the East Phillips neighborhood have been vacant - one with an empty building - for more than a decade after a developer's plans to build multi-unit affordable housing never materialized.

Located at 2931 and 2937 Bloomington Av. S., the parcels will technically be sold for $1 each - pending City Council approval - to Red Lake Nation leaders to build a culturally sensitive opioid and fentanyl addiction facility.
