Tangletown neighborhood is partnering with Lynnhurst, Kenny, and Windom neighborhoods to develop a Neighborhood Priority Plan which suggests an approach to encouraging development specifically of a Special Services District for the area of Lyndale Avenue and 54th Street. Please review the NPP Plan Document to better understand the background and goals of this partnership and initiative. Submit questions about this proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. The proposal will be set for community approval at the September 16 board meeting.
The Lyndale Ave bridge crossing Minnehaha Creek is scheduled to close January 17, 2012, several weeks ahead of schedule. Please refer to the flyer from Nicollet East Harriet Business Association for information on reaching our local businesses effectively. Bridge construction and Lyndale Ave reconstruction south to 56th Street will continue through Fall 2012.
The County and City will be delaying the Lyndale Avenue Road Reconstruction Project AND the Lyndale Avenue Bridge Replacement Project until 2012. There will be no construction this year. Please see the letter from Hennepin County for more information.

By attending the workshop, you are eligible to receive a customized home visit, a $400 energy efficiency package for a co-pay of only $30! This package includes two energy professionals from the Center for Energy and Environment spending an hour and half with you in your home. During this time they will perform a blower door test, which measures air leaks, as well as install energy and money saving materials. Some of these materials may include: compact fluorescent light bulbs, a programmable thermostat, low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, pipe wrap and more!
Homeowners are also provided with 12 months of personalized energy tracking. This unique feedback allows you to see how your home uses energy, compares your energy use to like-sized homes and gives you future saving potential. Participants are also given information on financing, incentives, the federal tax credit and gain access to rebates available only to Community Energy Services.
Funding for this project was provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR).
