We hope that talks have not stalled on your block and that you’ll take advantage of the fact that you can block off your street *at no charge* through the end of the day, July 19, 2011!
Registering will get you the street permit placard, MOA Mystery Tickets, and some neat information on holding a “greener NNO”! If you just have a yard party, you’ll get it all, minus the permit. Registered parties in Kingfield will also get free Sebastian Joe’s ice cream delivered! Please link to the following ASAP–https://apps.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/blockeventapp/
This is such a good deal, about two dozen blocks have registered TWICE! 🙂 Many of the planned events for the NNO parties registered thus far include, simply, “talking…chatting…getting to know neighbors… catching up on things”… That’s the whole point, and there’ll be a whole lot of community building going on, with no budget gimmicks, posturing, or gamesmanship (OK, lots of games, but the good kind!)…
We hope you’ll take a moment to register your event–for organizers of past events, you should know it will take less than 1/3 of the time it took last year. We do not require that you list all of your supporting neighbors, you just need to check a box affirming that you have their support!
Don’t let the midnight deadline of July 19 sneak up on you without an agreement!! After that we can’t compromise, the fee will be $100. We’d rather you spend that on comestibles for your grill, or rent for a bouncy house, or other fun stuff!

P.S. We are 5 registrations shy of 1000 signed up to date. If you are event #1000 I will throw in an extra set of Twins Baseball Cards!
