Community Conversations at 7 PM! Come meet Tim Schwarz the Election Specialist with the City to discuss Precinct numbers, issues, and potential changes for the 2016 election. PLUS hear from KFNA’s Project Organizer Cheryl DeGroff talking about current crime rates and changes over the last few years. Discussion will include how KFNA can support neighbors best related to crime in the community including the role social media plays in informing people of crime trends, but possibly also heightening fear and creating a perception that crime rates are on the rise.
Conversations will be followed by the regular KFNA Board meeting. The community is invited to stay if they are interested. If you have questions contact Executive Director Sarah Linnes-Robinson at email@example.com.
This month at the Kingfield Crime Prevention and Safety meeting, we are celebrating all the hard work done by our neighborhood Block Leads! Come out to MLK Park on Wednesday, May 20th at 7pm and meet other block leads, share ideas about successful activities, and receive updates from MPD.

Organizing Workshop Tuesday May 12, 6-7:30 PM
MLK Park Multipurpose room, 4055 Nicollet
(Bring your organic waste with you and leave it on site!)
RSVP your intent to attend to firstname.lastname@example.org!
The Kingfield Neighborhood Association, in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling, is proud to announce the opening of a residential organics drop-off at Martin Luther King, Jr. Park. On May 12th, from 6 – 7:30 PM, an educational meeting/workshop will be held at the park for residents to learn more about the drop-off and the citywide organics recycling program. Bring your questions for the city’s recycling coordinator who will be present, and bring your organics, as the new drop-off carts will be on site for the meeting!
Residential organics include all food waste (including food you shouldn’t compost in a backyard bin), food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials such as coffee grounds and filters, cotton swabs, dryer lint, and popsicle sticks. Yard waste and pet waste are not accepted. Residents must drop off their organic materials in a compostable bag (made of paper or certified compostable plastic). Larger items such as pizza boxes and wax-coated boxes do not need to be bagged.
The drop-off will be open to all Minneapolis residents at no cost. For the first several weeks, the drop-off will have designated hours (Tuesdays evenings and Saturday mornings) when volunteers will be on site to answer questions, train new participants, and gather some information from residents using the drop-off.
