Applications are now being accepted for open board positions on the Minneapolis Pedestrian Advisory Committee and Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee. The positions are appointed by the City Council and Mayor. Applications will be reviewed beginning April 25, 2013, but the positions are open until filled.

Pedestrian Advisory Committee

Grants for Home Lead Abatement Available

From ANA’s inbox:

The Sustainable Resources Center is a non-profit in NE Minneapolis that works to make homes safer for families. We specialize in healthy homes issues with a focus on preventing childhood lead poisoning. We’re currently partnering with Hennepin County to offer Lead Hazard Control grants to residence of Hennepin County. These grants are available to both homeowners and rental property owners and can cover all or much of the cost of the lead hazard control process, including the replacement of old windows with lead paint.

To qualify for these grants a household must:

  • Have a child under the age of 5 who lives in the home, a pregnant woman who lives in the home, or a child under the age of 5 who frequently lives in the home.
  • The home needs to be built before 1960.
  • The home must be located in Hennepin County.
  • And the household must meet the certain income requirements.
