Update to Proposed Voter Precinct Boundary Changes


FNA previous reported that In order to help reduce the chance of long lines in years that see large voter turnout, the City of Minneapolis is adding two voting precincts in Ward 13 and redrawing boundary lines. We provided a map of the proposed boundary changes.

We have now been advised by the City that the roll-out plan has changed:

• no precinct changes will be effective until after the caucus and local convention process is complete
• the map of Ward 13 with precinct boundary changes was flawed and will be revised with the new version shared with the neighborhood organization as soon as possible.

For any questions or concerns, please contact:

Fall Street Sweeping Begins 10/20



Public Works is beginning the big task of curb-to-curb street sweeping and leaf collection on streets throughout the city. During the four weeks of the comprehensive fall street sweep, crews will clean up about 1,100 miles of city streets.

To make sure the sweepers can do the best job possible, temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance so streets will be clear of vehicles when they’re swept. Any vehicles remaining on the street prior to the sweep may be ticketed and towed.

To find out when the sweepers are coming down your block, a tool is available at www.minneapolismn.gov/streetsweeping. The fall street sweep takes four weeks, and the website shows which week any street is scheduled to be swept.

Minneapolis streets are swept completely curb to curb once in the spring and once in the fall. Residents should not push leaves, grass clippings, or other debris into City streets – it’s bad for our lakes and waterways, can cause safety hazards, and is against the law. Anything that goes down a storm drain flows directly into our lakes and river, and decomposing plant material in the water encourages the growth of harmful aquatic plants and algae.

Changes Proposed to Voter Precincts and Boundaries in Ward 13

In order to help reduce the chance of long lines in years that see large voter turnout, the City of Minneapolis is adding two voting precincts in Ward 13 and redrawing boundary lines. Please see the map* of the existing and proposed new precincts. The blue lines are current precincts and the colored lines superimposed on top of the blue lines are where new precincts would be drawn. Fulton residents will vote at Pershing Park, Lake Harriet United Methodist Church or Mt. Olivet Church.

This map is a proposal only at this time; the full City Council will likely vote on its adoption in January 2016. If you have any comments on the proposed precincts or boundaries, please contact Tim Schwarz with Election and Voter Services:
