Neighbors getting nervous about Vikings move to U and TCF Bank Stadium in 2014

The Twin Cities Daily Planet’s Bill Huntzicker has an interesting round up on the neighbors nervously eyeing the prospect of Vikings games at TCF Bank Stadium — likely starting in August of 2014. The Marcy Homes Neighborhood Association, the folks living in Prospect Park and the U of M area business community are all wondering what pro football, and (mostly) Sunday games might bring to the area east of the U.

As usual, there’s some coin involved: Huntzicker reports that area residents are hoping the Vikings chip into what’s being termed a “Good Neighbor Fund.” The MHNA is also apparently floating the idea of a $1 a seat “neighborhood livability surcharge” to fund improvements in the area around the Bank.
