Minnesota School of Basketball Will Move to Golden Valley

The City Council approved the conditional use permit for the new business, which will move to the warehouse on the 8000 block of 7th Avenue North.

The Golden Valley City Council unanimously approved a conditional use permit that will allow the Minnesota School of Basketball to make its home in Golden Valley.

The basketball school currently operates in Plymouth and Apple Valley. The Golden Valley location will replace the Plymouth location.

When the Golden Valley Planning Commission , commissioners found the business to be a nice alternative to the Halloween superstore that was originally going to take the warehouse space, but then backed out last minute.

"We like this proposal a lot better than the Disturbia in Suburbia proposal," Planning Commission member David Cera said at the City Council meeting.

The Minnesota School of Basketball offers lessons to athletes between ages 7 and 21.

"The business will provide proper training, footwork and skill instruction in the sport of basketball," Ammann said in a letter to the City. "The nature of this business is going to be individual or small group training."

Ammann put councilmembers' fears to rest, noting that there wouldn't be any rowdy games of basketball taking place outside of the establishment.

"In Golden Valley, we allow recreational facilities in light industrial zoning [areas] as a conditional use," City Planner Joe Hogeboom said. "This seems like  a very good use of this building."
