Stevens Square Community Organization was made aware on November 1 that the City of Minneapolis has begun the process of revoking the rental license of landlord Stephen Frenz. This is being done as a result of violations of the City’s rental license requirements. Mr. Frenz has 10 days to correct the defects or appeal this decision. We believe Mr. Frenz will appeal very quickly.
All residents of properties owned and operated by The Apartment Shop/JAS Apartments/Stephen Frenz will receive a letter from the City of Minneapolis explaining the process. The letter being sent out is informational only and does not reflect any residents need to move.
This is a very complicated process which can take over a year to complete – and the outcome is not determined just by City action. Mr. Frenz has many legal means to challenge this action. Read more »

Welcome to Stevens Square—Loring Heights, a vibrant neighborhood located in the shadow of downtown Minneapolis. A centrally-located park, tree-lined blocks of brick apartment buildings, and a post-card view of downtown make Stevens Square the Brooklyn of the Midwest. This geographically small urban enclave boasts one of the highest densities of any metro neighborhood.
Block Patrol is a group of trained volunteers who:
• patrol the streets of Steven Square - Loring Heights observing activity in the neighborhood.
• are interested in coming together socially to meet other neighbors and to learn more about the neighborhood.
• want to reduce criminal activity in the neighborhood.
• act as an extra set of eyes and ears for the police department.
• help organize residents as a preventive force to deter criminal and disruptive behavior.
Block Patrol is open to all individuals 18 years and older. Prospective volunteers must complete an application, agree to follow the established guidelines, and attend a two-hour orientation session and patrol. Volunteers are asked to participate for at least two hours per month. To join Block Patrol, contact Dave at (612) 874-2840 or firstname.lastname@example.org Read more »
