Performances will be held Thursday, March 6, Friday, March 7, and Saturday, March 8, all at 7pm.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for students (6-17), and children 5 and under can attend free.

City Bans Even-Side Parking

Winter Parking Restrictions have been put in place for reasons of public safety.

Because of snow and ice buildup along curbs, many streets are getting too narrow for fire trucks and ambulances to get around. Until further notice, DO NOT park on the even side of non-Snow Emergency routes. Until further notice, DO NOT PARK on the even side of non-Snow Emergency routes (most residential streets).

This will allow emergency crews to navigate every street in Minneapolis and get to people as quickly as possible. You can park on both sides of Snow Emergency routes, parkways and along the odd numbered side of non-Snow Emergency routes, provided a Snow Emergency is not in effect, or unless otherwise posted.

Presidents Day Walk

The annual walk begins 10am at Edison, this Saturday, February 15th. All are welcome.

City Recycling Update


Mpls Recycles graphicMpls blue recylcing cart photoPlastci and foam prohibited graphic

In 2013, an additional 5% of our total waste stream was diverted from the trash for recycling. Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling wants to thank Minneapolis residents helping increase our recycling rate from our 2012 recycling rate of 17.4% to our 2013 rate of 23.3%! Keep up the good work!

Please remember that plastic bags and StyrofoamTM are NOT accepted in the one-sort program. If you collect recycling at your home in a plastic bag, the recyclables need to be removed from the plastic bag and placed into the recycling cart. The plastic bag may be brought to a participating grocery or retail store for recycling or placed in the garbage. You may place full paper bags of recycling into your one-sort cart without emptying the bag. All StyrofoamTM should be placed in the garbage.

Fun Fact: Recycling a 1-foot tall stack of paper saves enough energy for you to take a hot shower daily for a week. About 20% of Minnesotan’s household garbage is recyclable paper. Search your house for more paper products that you could be recycling today!

If you have any questions regarding your solid waste and recycling services, please visit www.minneapolismn.gov/solid-waste or call Solid Waste & Recycling at (612) 673-2917.

NE Network Community Planning Meeting

From ANA’s inbox:

Please join us for the 2nd NE Network planning meeting of 2014.

Thursday, January 30, 2014 at the Eastside Food Co-op Granite Studio
6:00–7:30pm (join the conversation at any convenient time)

The first community planning meeting was extremely productive. When asked what value is offered by the NE Network, this is what was said: The NE Network is the place to get updates and valued information about the community; a place for dialogue and networking; a way to get connected to the NE community; a place where residents come together to learn how to make our lives better.

The NE Network is in a state of transition and transformation. We all are considering ways to expand the planning committee and  the scope of topics, searching alternate locations and times, and seeking ways to take our collective knowledge to a place of action.

Some thoughts for further discussion:
