Promote your neighborhood, show your home on the 2009 Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour
The 2009 Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour is looking for homeowners and home improvement professionals to put their homes on the Tour. The Tour, in its 22nd year, will be held Saturday and Sunday, April 25 and 26, 2009. Nomination/applications are due Friday, January 23, 2009, and early inquiries are encouraged.
“I would recommend to others that they open their homes, it’s an amazing ego boost,” said one of last year’s participating homeowners, “we enjoyed most, chatting with a zillion people.” Others said they liked the push to get their home improvement projects done in time for the tour.
“During fall and winter gatherings, homeowners can ask their families and friends to save a few hours on that last weekend in April,” said Margo Ashmore, Tour coordinator. “A good support network hosting the home makes it fun. Community leaders also should start now, identifying clusters of well-kept and remodeled homes to ask to participate.”
Minneapolis Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) manages the tour as a celebration of city living that encourages homeowners to improve existing housing stock. Many organizations and businesses sponsor the tour. Contractors and other vendors may nominate homes they have worked on, and are encouraged to call for more information. Green, energy efficient, and historically-sensitive remodels and expansions get special notice.
For more information, call Tour Coordinator Margo Ashmore at 612-673-5103 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. The application can be downloaded from www.MSPHomeTour.com under “nominate.”
