Council Member's Message

After a protracted winter season that lasted well into April and stretched resources and patience, spring has finally arrived, with Art-A-Whirl just around the corner. This annual celebration of our Northeast Minneapolis Arts District is truly a not-to-be-missed event, offering a rare opportunity to visit the studios and workshops of the artists and makers who fuel our community's creative economy. I urge you all to get out and enjoy this year's Art-A-Whirl. See the story below for more details.

The slow arrival of spring has necessitated a late start on our Spring Street Sweep, which finally got underway May 1, and has also delayed the start of several road construction projects. This spring and summer we will be seeing work on University Avenue and 37th Avenue NE, as well as the second phase of the Waite Park Concrete Rehabilitation project and the completion of the 18th Ave NE project. See the story below for further information.

Also, I encourage you to attend the upcoming Comprehensive Plan Open House being held at the Northeast Park Recreation Center on Saturday, May 12.  This event will be interactive, allowing the opportunity to view and comment on draft policies and maps, as well as sit down with city planners and fellow attendees for in-depth discussion on specific action steps listed in the draft plan. We'll also have free food and family-friendly activities created by local artists. I hope to see many of you there!
