The City of Minneapolis was recently awarded funding to improve several pedestrian crossings near Lyndale School. City staff worked closely with the school to identify three priority intersections, which were then included in the funding application. The project staff would like community feedback on the proposal before beginning the engineering/design phase. Construction is expected to take place summer 2016.
Please attend the Lyndale Neighborhood Association General Membership Meeting on July 27th, 6:30pm at Painter Park to discuss the project with City staff. Visit the project webpage for more information: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/publicworks/saferoutes/WCMS1P-142887
New Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office Swap Spots Provide a Safe Place to Conduct Online Exchanges 07/20/2015
Filed Under crime | Comments Off on New Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office Swap Spots Provide a Safe Place to Conduct Online Exchanges 07/20/2015
Those wishing to save a couple of bucks on Craigslist and other on-line exchange sites might also be risking their safety. According to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, criminals can target unsuspecting buyers or sellers during face-to-face transactions.
Starting Wednesday, online buyers and sellers in Minneapolis and surrounding areas have a safe option – Swap Spots.
The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office created designated public places where people can meet to exchange items and cash.
The Swap Spots are open Monday through Friday, during regular business hours.
According to the Hennepin County Sheriff”s Office, deputies will not monitor each exchange nor keep a log of the purchases.
If a person wants to request a deputy to be present for an exchange, the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office will try to get one for you.
Swap Spots are located in the lobbies of three Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office facilities.
They include the:
- Sheriff’s Water Patrol in Spring Park
- Enforcement Services Division in Brooklyn Park
- Hennepin County Public Safety Facility in Minneapolis
