Welcome to the Fulton Neighborhood Website

Burglary Prevention

There has been of rash of burglaries in Fulton neighborhood this summer.  The Minneapolis Police Department tells us “We did an alley sweep for the past couple of days in Kingfield, Lynnhurst and Fulton neighborhood and the themes are the same:  more opportunity and more crime.  Lynnhurst and Fulton had 18 open garages, and the further you go to the west the more expensive equipment you find.  The average number of open garages is about 10-12 per neighborhood, and most owners we spoke to do know about the break-ins, but somehow they do not think it will happen to them”.  We thank the Police Department for doing some preventative sweeps in the neighborhood and now it is our turn to respond:  lock your doors and windows!  The MPD 5th Precinct has put together a Burglary Prevention Flyer to help us all remember some basic crime prevention strategies.

Also, please keep an eye out for your neighbors- if you see an open garage door be sure to tell them right away!

Public Open House to Review Proposed Zoning Code Amendments

Since March, a team of interdepartmental City planners have been researching the regulations that govern residential construction. The areas include (but are not limited to) site plan review standards, building height and floor area, required yard area, building coverage and impervious surface, and urban form and character. The first draft of proposed changes was presented to industry representatives, who offered constructive feedback.  This draft document can be found at: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/cped/WCMS1P-127384.  This page will be updated as new information is available.

Now, we look forward to hearing what Minneapolis residents think.
