Minneapolis Solid Waste and Recycling in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Armatage Neighborhood Association are proud to announce the opening of residential organics drop-offs at Armatage Park.  The drop-off will be open beginning on Tuesday October 14, 2014 and operating Tuesdays and Saturdays as follows:

  • Tuesdays 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Residential organics include all food waste (including food items that you should not compost in a backyard bin such as meat, bones and dairy), food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials such as coffee grounds, 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 (either paper or certified compostable plastic).  Larger items such as pizza boxes and wax coated boxes do not need to be bagged.

The drop-off is open to all Minneapolis residents at no cost.  For the first six weeks to two months, the drop-off will have the following designated delivery times when volunteers will be on site to answer questions, train new participants, and gather some information from residents that will be used to help craft the message for the future city-wide organics collection program. If you want to serve as a volunteer,  contact Kellie Kish at

Chief Janeé Harteau and Mayor Betsy Hodges are announcing three community conversations in October. These forums, which are open to the public, will further help the MPD connect with our neighborhoods and communities, and will move us all closer to our collective goal of increasing public safety and public trust.

In addition, Chief Harteau is announcing the start of “Chat with the Chief,” a monthly initiative that will begin in October. The Chief regularly works in the city’s 5 police precincts and she is excited to invite community members to the precincts to openly chat with her, one-on-one, in an open house setting. Details and dates for this initiative will be announced on the Minneapolis Police Department’s Facebook page and Twitter account (@MPD_PIO).

KFNA Board Meeting / Wednesday October 8 /8 PM, MLK Park (Note time change to accommodate attending the conversation with the Police Chief and Mayor)

The time for this meeting has been changed to 8-9 PM to accommodate attending the conversation with the Mayor and Police Chief. Please know that neighbors are always invited to come hear what the KFNA Board is working on or bring their questions or concerns before the board. Community Forum occurs at the beginning of the meeting which is your opportunity to ask a question or raise a concern. If you have an item that is more than a simple update and expect to need more than 1-2 minutes, please contact Executive Director, Sarah Linnes-Robinson at sarah@kingfield.org and ask if there is time on the agenda for a more in depth discussion.

There’s still time (before the snow flies!) to join the new Kingfield Block Walkers for exercise, camaraderie, and to be additional eyes and ears on our blocks! Groups are being formed to start walking this month at both evening and daytime hours.

E-mail Cheryl@kingfield.org to become part of this fun new group or simply join us for the first walk on Tuesday Oct. 7 at 9:30 AM at Butter Bakery Cafe, 3700 Nicollet Ave. S.  Ask for the Kingfield Walker discount when you order your warm-up coffee to go!

PS– If you are a Kingfield Home-based worker, stop into Butter at 8:30 AM on Tuesday to meet others from the neighborhood that work from home!

Chief Janeé Harteau and Mayor Betsy Hodges are announcing three community conversations in October. These forums, which are open to the public, will further help the MPD connect with our neighborhoods and communities, and will move us all closer to our collective goal of increasing public safety and public trust.

The October community conversations, called “Let’s Move Forward,” will be held on the following dates and times:

  •  October 8, 6:30-8:00 pm at Macedonia Baptist Church, 3801 1st Avenue South
  •  October 14, 7:00-8:30 pm at Church of the Ascension, 1723 Bryant Avenue North
  •  October 30, 6:30-8:00 pm in Cedar–Riverside, location TBA

In addition, Chief Harteau is announcing the start of “Chat with the Chief,” a monthly initiative that will begin in October. The Chief regularly works in the city’s 5 police precincts and she is excited to invite community members to the precincts to openly chat with her, one-on-one, in an open house setting. Details and dates for this initiative will be announced on the Minneapolis Police Department’s Facebook page and Twitter account (@MPD_PIO).

This path forward on continued community engagement is an extension of Chief Harteau’s MPD 2.0 plan. The plan has put our cops out of cars, putting them out on the streets to connect face-to-face with residents. It also creates a culture of accountability and provides a greater level of transparency for all the stakeholders in the City.

“MPD 2.0 has grown in the past year and a half. Many of these progressive changes are the result of thoughtful and creative community recommendations. MPD 2.0 is a different, non-traditional, grassroots way of connecting on a personal level with the residents of Minneapolis. I’m incredibly proud of how engaged our community is on public safety issues. Some prefer large gatherings while others look for a more personal connection, so we are setting up the community conversations and Chat with the Chief to accommodate both,” Harteau remarked.

These new initiatives result from consultations with Chief Harteau’s Citizen’s Advisory Council and a variety of community members, as well as conversations between Chief Harteau and Mayor Hodges.

 

“I support Chief Harteau and share her commitment to community policing, MPD 2.0 and the people of Minneapolis,” Mayor Hodges said. “I appreciate the feedback that I have gotten from the community since last week’s listening session, and Chief Harteau and I have used it as we have moved forward on putting together this plan.

“This work is hard, and through it all, I remain who I am: the mayor committed to closing our gaps, building relationships, and making Minneapolis a great city for everyone. I will not waiver from this commitment,” Mayor Hodges concluded.

 

 

The Kingfield Home-Based Professionals are excited to announce a monthly rotating gathering at a Kingfield café! Much like our Third Week of the Month Happy Hour gatherings (which will continue), there’s no formal agenda–just a fun, casual gathering of professionals who work from home.

We’ll gather the first week of every month at a neighborhood café.

Look for us Tuesday 7 October from 8:30 – 9:30 am at Butter Bakery & Cafe (37th & Nicollet). We’ll be at the large community table on the north side of the cafe.

P.S. Meet up with the new Kingfield Walking Club afterwards at 9:30 am.
