JO Thompson, Inc. has been in the Como Park flooring business for almost 60 years. The family first owned property on Robert St in the 1950s, then on University and Snelling in the 60s. In 1965, Jim Thompson, Sr., bought what is now Nelson’s Cheese Shop. Shortly thereafter, he purchased the property that is J.O Thompson Inc. flooring business, currently owned and managed by his son, Jim. Having worked in the shop at a very young age, Jim says that a multitude of businesses have come and gone over the years.
Over the past year District 10 Como Community Council has had the privilege of working with many individual and group volunteers to plan and put on the major community events that are hosted each year. We have been hosting a major event in each of the four subdistricts so that we can encourage neighbors from the whole community to engage with each other and community partners that have vested interest in the district.
The first Wednesday of every month Community Meeting, beginning at 7pm, typically hosts our Environment and Neighborhood Relations committee topics for discussion and planning, as well as guest presentations related to those issues. Occasionally time sensitive Land Use and Board/Organizational items are included on the agenda as well.
These 7pm meetings are open to the public and are offered hybrid in-person at the Como Streetcar Station (1224 Lexington Parkway) as well as on zoom. Agendas are posted on our website homepage as well as shared in our Weekly Newsletter the Friday prior to the meeting.
The purpose of the Neighborhood Relations Committee is to encourage a healthy and safe community by fostering neighborly relationship/communication between District 10 residents, public institutions and private businesses in the community. The committee will act as a liaison between the community, block clubs, District 10 committees, public institutions, and private businesses for District 10. The committee is committed to the safety and well being of the District 10 community.
