Historic Saint Andrew’s located in Como Park is in imminent danger of being demolished by the Twin Cities German Immersion school (TCGIS) as part of its expansion plan.  St. Andrew's has long been a treasured part of the Como neighborhood. The Heritage Preservation Commission recently voted (8-1) in favor of recommending St. Andrews as a Heritage Preservation Site. The final decision lies with the City Council and Mayor Carter. Based on advice from some of the best architectural minds in the state, we believe a collaborative solution is possible to provide for the school’s needs within the school’s budget, while also preserving Saint Andrew’s. Destroying St. Andrew’s would have a long-term negative impact on the historic and residential character of the neighborhood. To reduce this impact we ask City Officials to require TCGIS to develop a no-demolition alternative. This is a required consideration in all thorough planning processes.
