Pig & Fiddle

Register here for the Fulton Networking/Happy Hour Event.
Over the past couple of years, FNA has sponsored networking events to help people come together over a common interest, meet new neighbors and connect with other Fulton residents. Our most popular event to date was Happy Hour at Pig & Fiddle, so we have decided to do another one! Join us on Mon., Feb. 6, 6-8 p.m. in the side room at Pig & Fiddle for a free beverage and some tasty appetizers.
There is no cost to attend, but we ask that you pre-register so we can be prepared. Attendance is limited due to space constraints, so register early! We are hoping to sponsor further Happy Hour gatherings throughout the year.
The project would consist of a 952 square foot second story addition over existing foundation. This is a front set-back variance request required because home to the south sits approximately six feet further back from the street.
Sat., Jan. 28
Lake Harriet, North End
The Minnesota Kite Society will be flying their large kites on the lake and offering demonstrations. Bring your own kite or buy one at the event. Other popular events include the kids ice fishing village, music, food, marshmallow roasting, snowshoeing, and more. Hot food and beverages will be available from Bread and Pickle and several food trucks.
The next regularly scheduled FNA meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Pershing Park on Wed., Jan. 11. Please see the agenda below.
2017 January Agenda
In the next three to five years, the Southdale Library will be rebuilt, but there is room for much more. Members of the public can help shape concepts for the Southdale Library site at two upcoming interactive workshops.
A workshop to shape preliminary concepts will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 12. Revised concepts will be reviewed at a workshop from 7 to 9 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 9. Both workshops will be held at the Southdale Library, 7001 York Ave. Neighbors, library patrons and other community members from Richfield, South Minneapolis, Bloomington and Edina are invited to one or both of the workshops. Participants will work together in small and large groups.
Additional public meetings to discuss specific details of library programs and design are planned for later in 2017 and 2018.
Trail and access improvements near NE Calhoun, SE Harriet and Lake Street will begin construction next spring.
Preferred concepts for the Calhoun-Harriet Trail and Access Improvements project have been posted online. These concepts were shaped by public feedback garnered from the Calhoun-Harriet Master Plan, two public open houses and hundreds of online survey responses.
The concepts will be brought into final design this winter and construction will begin in the spring. Please check the Calhoun-Harriet Trail and Access Improvements project page for more details.
