From April 1st through April 25th there were seventy-seven (77) residential burglaries in the 3rd Precinct. That is a 45% increase from the same period last year. They occurred throughout the precinct. At this point Minneapolis Police have arrested five suspects who may have been involved in these burglaries.

Join SNG and the Minneapolis Parks at the annual Earth Day Clean up. The MPB will provide the supplies and advanced registration is NOT required! Simply show up at 24th St. & West River Pkwy and pick up your gloves and garbage bag. There will be supplies for cleaning and stenciling near-by storm drains also.
Trees are available for Minneapolis property owners including residents, businesses and nonprofits. This program is a collaboration of the City of Minneapolis and Tree Trust. Trees are going fast so order soon here.
Choose from several varieties and sizes of trees. First-come, first-served – order early for best selection. Limit one tree per property, maximum three properties.
Healthy trees look beautiful in your neighborhood, increase property values, help clean the air you breathe, absorb carbon dioxide, save on your energy bills with strategic planting, keep the city cooler in the summer, provide homes for wildlife and help manage stormwater.
