Next Community Meeting: September 8th, 7pm

NOTE: We meet on the 2nd Monday due to the Labor Day holiday

  • John Vaughn, from the Northeast Community Development Corporation (NE/CDC) will be present to discuss the canvass and how it relates to increasing ANA's capacity to better represent and serve Audubon Park.
  • Recently, NE/CDC worked with ANA to canvass the Audubon Park neighborhood door to door. This is one of the fundamentals of community organizing, and while labor intensive, creates a significant connection with the community at-large. ANA and NE CDC were able to field 13 teams for an entire afternoon. Great job!

Audubon Renters Become Audubon Homeowners

Colin Mullen, a brewer at Barley John’s Brewpub in New Brighton and Laura Fryberger, owner of the local event planning company, Flings Event Design, purchased their Arthur Street bungalow in the Audubon Park neighborhood in May 2008, just a few months before their scheduled wedding in September of 2008.

The couple rented one unit of a duplex on Buchanan Street for 3 years prior to the decision to buy in the neighborhood. Laura loves the feeling of community and connection to the Northeast arts scene. Colin likes the quick and convenient access to downtown, his workplace, and all necessary goods like Eastside Co-op and the Quarry businesses.

Both enjoy supporting local businesses so they enjoy walking to the Johnson Street merchants like Pop! Restaurant, Dabble, Rewind Audubon Coffee, and most recently Crafty Planet.

Water those trees - Help Maintain our Urban Forest

It’s that time of year again! Hot July temperatures and lack of rainfall are stressing trees. As a result the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) Forestry Division urges residents to water their trees, especially young trees planted on boulevards. .”We really need residents to step forward to help us maintain these new trees by watering them once or twice a week as we deal with dry conditions,” says Paul Domholt, Community Forestry Coordinator.

Reconstructed St. Anthony Parkway bike trails now open

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is pleased to announce that reconstruction of 3.3 miles of bike trails along St. Anthony Parkway in Northeast Minneapolis is complete.

The 32-year-old trail from the Camden Bridge (at 37th Ave. NE) east to Ulysses St. NE was replaced with a 10 ft. wide bituminous path. From Ulysses St. NE east to Stinson Parkway the sidewalk on the north side was removed and a 10-foot wide concrete combined pedestrian and bike path was installed.

St. Anthony Parkway is part of the Northeast District of the nationally-recognized Grand Rounds Scenic Byway system. Encompassing more than 50 miles of parkway, and bicycle and pedestrian trails, the Grand Rounds offer a picturesque tour of Minneapolis.

More information and maps of the St. Anthony Parkway and the Grand Rounds are available at www.minneapolisparks.org. Maps are also available by calling 612-230-6400.
