Community Programs & Deadlines
- If you’re interested in organizing your block, the MPD is holding an evening Block Leader Training session on Monday night.
- Artist call: Do you have art that is bike-themed, illuminated, interactive and/or family-friendly? The Midtown Greenway Coalition is looking for artists to participate in its annual Greenway Glow: Illuminated Art Festival, which draws more than 2,000 people to the Greenway.
- Sign up is open for the Minneapolis Parks’ Rec Plus summer and school-year sessions. Rec Plus is a program of the Parks Department that offers recreation-based care for kids 5-12.
- If you’re in Seward and would like to have your house listed on the official garage sale map, Tuesday is the last day to register for the neighborhood garage sale.
- If you are willing to help install raised garden beds, be a garden mentor, play your musical instrument in the garden, or prepare dinner for gardeners, contact Transition Longfellow. They will be installing garden beds throughout the community this May and need volunteers to help.
- West River Parkway from Franklin Avenue to 4th St remains closed – including ramps – for repaving. The project is expected to last until May 20th.
