Tangletown Neighborhood Association (TNA) proposes the adoption of several new neighborhood priorities
The priorities have been generated from the focus groups that were held last spring and summer and include the areas of:
– Innovative Environmental Leadership
– Engaged Welcoming Committee
– Beautiful Purposeful Spaces
Additionally, TNA proposes reallocating approximately $150,000 of remaining NRP funds to these newly identified priorities. Complete details will be available at the October meeting and will be posted at www.tangletown.org.
Solar Power Hour
We’re partnering with the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) for their next round of Solar Power Hour information sessions.
If you are interested in going solar or learning whether owning a solar PV system is right for your home or business, join Tangletown Neighborhood Association and the MREA at our next Solar Twin Cities – Solar Power Hour hosted at the Pearl Community Center starting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3rd.
New to Solar Twin Cities Group Buy Program?
Start by attending a Solar Power Hour. These free information sessions teach you the basics of solar, its financial implications for your household/business, and how the solar group buy program works. Then, get a free, no obligation site, and cost assessment from the competitively-selected solar installer for TrueNorth Solar.
The more people who go solar, the lower the price for all! That’s because each time we collectively reach certain benchmarks (50 kW, 100 kW, 200 kW), the price drops for everyone. Doesn’t matter if you decide to go solar at the beginning of the program or the end: the same price breaks apply to everyone. The deadline to make a decision is October 31.
Stay tuned for an invite to the Tangletown Neighborhood After Party! You can hear from your neighbors who have already gone solar.
Next Board Meeting:
Our next board meeting will be Monday September 17 at 7pm. Note, we will be meeting at Bryant Square Park (3101 Bryant Ave S). All are welcome to attend.
