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.

“No Fly Day” on Sat., Oct. 24

MSPFairSkies logo (2)

Join MSP FairSkies for “No Fly Day” on Sat. Oct. 24, at noon at the Lake Harriett Band Shell (look for MSP FairSkies Coalition signs.)

Special guest speaker, State Representative Frank Hornstein, and other officials will be there right at noon to talk about important issues, initiatives and impacts of our metro area aviation noise problems. You’ll want to hear what he has to say (that is if we can hear over the sounds of those low-flying planes.)

What are we celebrating? Oct. 24 is National “No Fly Day” with many events being held around the U.S. Learn more at: http://noflyday.org/

And…remember that public meeting back in August where the Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC) presented its MSP Long Term Comprehensive Plan (LTCP)? Many of you attended and some of you wrote to elected officials to voice concerns about airport expansion, more flights and bigger planes. Your efforts, along with those of our city and state officials, paid off. The MAC decided to delay publication of the LTCP until the FAA completes an evaluation of runway use at MSP. Stay tuned—we will want to review the new data before the next steps in the MAC’s MSP LTCP.

We’ll talk about the LTCP and the impact of the FAA at MSP on Sat. Oct. 24—Join us!

Meanwhile, you can read about the “pause” by the MAC at: https://www.macnoise.com/news/mac-board-defers-publication-msp-long-term-comprehensive-plan

Thanks, neighbors, for all you do. We will see you on the 24th-and bring a friend.

We live here!
