Doorbells. Don’t you wish they worked? Don’t you wish yours did? Those nasty synthesized, wireless, electronic ones are not the answer, especially in our lovely old Lyndale houses. The real, electric doorbells that no longer work in your house can be fixed and you can do it. We will show you how.
Business Notes are short updates about what's happening at Lyndale Businesses.

LNA’s Environment Committee is looking forward to a productive year in Lyndale! The following is a summary of the Committee’s work plan that has been approved the LNA Board. In 2014, the Environment Committee will be continuing its work on garden projects, community outreach and education, sustainable living, and on neighborhood beautification and greening.
The Environment Committee will continue to be responsible for the maintenance of the Blaisdell Avenue Rain Garden. The group will also continue their work soliciting and redistributing fresh, healthy food through the Lyndale Food Share. The committee plans to expand the project this year through greater neighborhood participation and coordination with the Garfield Avenue Garden to create community space in the garden.
Are you a business that wants to start recycling? Maybe improve the recycling program you already have? Hennepin County is now offering grants up to $50,000 for businesses to start or improve programs to divert recyclables and organics (food and non-recyclable paper) from the trash.
Nearly two-thirds of waste created at businesses is recyclable. Having a strong recycling program conserves natural resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, can help a business’s bottom line, and demonstrates their commitment to sustainability to their customers.
“It wouldn’t just help me, but it would be a support to many other families that I know,” Adriana Lara spoke with conviction in favor of LNA taking a position to increase the state’s minimum wage at General Membership in January. Adriana’s compassion for other families has made a clear home for her in the Lyndale Neighborhood and shaped the work LNA does in the neighborhood.
At the February General Membership Meeting there was a community vote in favor of having the Lyndale Neighborhood Association (LNA) take a position supporting an increase in the minimum wage. The position adopted at the meeting is that LNA supports raising the minimum wage to $9.50/hour over three years, indexing it to inflation, and including a tip credit.
¡Youth Farm está emocionado para la estación de cultivar! Este mes empezamos sembrar nuestro huerto en la escuela Lyndale. Ayudaremos a los estudiantes de Lyndale sembrar rábano, espinaca y lechuga. El final del mes sembramos las matitas de cebollas que cultivamos debajo de las luces de crecimiento adentro de la escuela. Toda nuestra comida va a los jóvenes que la cultivan. ¡De almuerzos en el verano a clases después de la esuela, comida para las familias a cenas comunitarias, nuestros jóvenes dan de comer a si mismo y sus familias!
I’m still not sure if the biggest surprise was all the transistors and transformers that seemed to from a steampunk’s dream, the second floor, or how dry it was. On a respectfully warm winter day I recently had the opportunity to look around the inside of the Garfield Aquarium.
Xcel has been doing some cleanup work on the building and invited a few of us to see the inside of one the neighborhood’s most recognizable landmarks. Walking into the long forgotten sub-station was like taking a step back in-time to an industrial era full of dark green and gray cast iron and sheet metal, with rows and rows of boxes and machines lined up to move power from some distant place to the neighborhood.
Winter Parking Restrictions have been put in place for reasons of public safety. Because of snow and ice buildup along curbs, many streets are getting too narrow for fire trucks and ambulances to get around. Until further notice, DO NOT park on the even side of non-Snow Emergency routes.
Until further notice, DO NOT PARK on the even side of non-Snow Emergency routes (most residential streets). This will allow emergency crews to navigate every street in Minneapolis and get to people as quickly as possible.
You can park on both sides of Snow Emergency routes, parkways and along the odd numbered side of non-Snow Emergency routes, provided a Snow Emergency is not in effect, or unless otherwise posted.
Property owners who need to repair or replace their sanitary sewer lines may be able to get some help paying for that construction. The Metropolitan Council has made grant money available to cover a third of the cost, up to $2,000. Work eligible for the funding includes:
Tuesday, March 1112:00 pm to 1:00 pm
