Join the neighborhood as we meet with the Minneapolis Police Department to review crime trends and learn about the real stories behind the statistics.
In 2015, the Minneapolis Police Department’s Fifth Precinct (where the Kingfield Neighborhood is located) saw a reduction in almost every Part One category. Part One crimes are the 8 main crimes that are tracked by the FBI across the nation, as listed above in black. In fact, the 5th Precinct had the greatest 2015 crime reduction in the city! Want more information? Come to the Kingfield Crime Prevention and Safety Committee Meeting on Wednesday, February 17th 7pm at MLK Park.
Come gather with your neighbors, hear the news of the year, and celebrate Kingfield and KFNA; maybe you’ll even see that really cool person you met at Empty Bowls last week!
6 PM potluck and social | 7 PM meeting
Childcare available beginning at 6:45 PM
Special Opportunities at this event:
- You can learn about two proposed “protected bike lanes” for Blaisdell and Nicollet Avenues. Come get the straight talk right from the City about these projects; maps and City Staff available from 6-7 to explain each project and take your feedback. A short overview presentation will occur during the meeting portion of the evening.
- Also come get the latest news on the redesign of the 40th Street Pedestrian Bridge, now included as part of the 35W Transit/Access Project. The entire project will involve heavy construction activities beginning late 2017 and continuing through 2020.
Please note that this 2nd Wednesday date is the regular meeting time of the KFNA Board…just in case you want to consider running for the board and this date works with your schedule!
