The Minneapolis Police Department will be providing crime updates on Tuesday night, November 21st, 6:30pm at MLK Park (4055 Nicollet Ave S). Our Crime Prevention Specialist will be there to answer your questions about crime trends in Kingfield and the 5th Precinct. Learn about resources available to make your home safer. This is your chance to get specific answers to questions you have about when to use 911, how to report suspicious incidents, and what you can do to reduce your chances of becoming a victim.
Join your neighbors in shaping our city to become a healthy, sustainable, and thriving place for all. Minneapolis 2040 is an update to the City’s Comprehensive Plan, a document that shapes how Minneapolis will grow and change. The plan will cover topics such as housing, job creation, the design of new buildings, and how we use our streets.
Over the past year, City planners have learned a lot from Minneapolis residents about the future of our city. We’ve heard that as the city grows, everyone must benefit from that growth. You told us that it can be difficult to access jobs that are not located nearby. We’ve heard concerns about the rising cost of housing, and that not everyone has access to the type of housing that meets their needs. We’ve also heard that people value well-designed and environmentally sustainable buildings, and that there is a desire for the city to be more walkable, bikeable, and mass transit-friendly.
Please attend one of four upcoming family friendly, interactive open houses in early December. Enjoy complimentary refreshments from local vendors. For more information and to sign up for updates at minneapolis2040.com.

Avoid the Interest Fee & Pay Now
If your block was resurfaced this summer, your property was assessed for street resurfacing. Assessments of more than $150 are collected in five annual principal installments on the real estate tax statements beginning in 2018. Interest is charged on the assessments at a 3.9% rate. Want to avoid paying 3.9% interest? You can prepay your entire amount starting in November through the end of 2017. Call 612.673.2401 for a pay statement.
The City of Minneapolis will not be sending or publishing any further notices about prepayment for this street resurfacing assessment, but because KFNA cares about its neighbors, we’re reminding you here!
