We all know that property crime increases as the temperature rises. Don’t be the next house targeted. There are many ways we can work together to make our neighborhood and individual properties less attractive to criminals looking for an easy score. Join us for a morning full of helpful tips to prevent car, home and garage break-ins, along with the best steps to take should the unfortunate occur. We’ll also hear from an expert about new home security technology that can be self-installed, linked to Wi-Fi and synched to your smartphone or computer.

A master plan is being developed for Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet which will set a vision and priorities for future park improvements. The planning process is guided by the Community Advisory Council (CAC), people appointed by various neighborhood associations and elected officials. The CAC has prioritized a list of projects to help determine how to spend $3 million in constructed improvements around the lakes in 2017 and will start to give final recommendations on the improvements at the final two meetings. While the focus of these meetings will be on the CAC’s work, the public will also be given a chance to speak.

Each spring and fall, Public Works crews sweep every mile of the City’s more than 1,100 miles of streets – curb to curb – to help keep our neighborhoods clean and livable and to protect our waterways. Each spring, crews also sweep the nearly 400 miles of alleys as well. Leaves and other debris on the streets can clog storm drains and pollute our lakes and rivers.
Street sweeping usually takes about four weeks to complete.
City crews will post “No Parking” signs at least 24 hours before sweeping any streets. Parking will be banned from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the day a street is swept. Vehicles not removed will be towed to the Minneapolis Impound Lot.
To see when your street will be swept, please check Street Sweeping Schedule Lookup. The schedule is updated frequently during the sweep to reflect the actual progress of street sweeping.
During the spring and fall sweeps, in addition to the “No Parking” signs that will be posted the day before sweepers come through, the City will make about 3,500 automated phone calls each evening to let residents know their street will be swept the next day.
Spring is here! Spring/Summer gardening and lawn maintenance season is around the corner. The Fulton Neighborhood Environment Committee supports and would like to share the key provisions of the Minneapolis Pollinator Resolution and what it might suggest for residents and businesses.
The City of Minneapolis urges all Minneapolis property owners, residents, businesses, institutions, and neighborhoods to become more pollinator-friendly by adopting practices listed below.
Here’s what each one of us can do to protect our pollinators:
- Committing to not use pesticides, including systemic insecticides, on their property;
- Avoiding planting flowering plants that are treated with systemic insecticides;
- Discontinuing the sale of pesticides and plants that are treated with insecticides;
- Planting more pollinator forage on their property and
- Organic or chemical-free lawn and landscaping practices.
