Neighborhood News

Bob Becker and Leslie Foreman, from Minneapolis Health Department, attended the February 10th meeting to present key requirements of the Environmentally Acceptable Packaging Ordinance.  This new ordinance requires that food and beverages prepared for immediate consumption and to-go must be placed in environmentally acceptable packaging. Polystyrene foam is simply not a good solution for food service.  It is difficult or impossible to successfully recycle. 

Tucked into a store front on Lake Street just a few doors east of Lyndale, Showroom offers a unique and special experience for designers and shoppers alike.  Showroom features one of a kind items made almost exclusively by Twin Cities designers and artists.  Inside are jewelry, fashion, art, and apothecary items that delight the senses.

I was there to meet with co-owner Jennifer Chilstrom who is a woman of many trades, talents, and interests.  I first met Jen when she agreed to make silhouettes for our Volunteer Appreciation Party two years ago.  She rounded up some fellow artists and created lovely silhouettes of volunteers at the party, even convincing a few reluctant party goers to sit for a “portrait”.  Her warm demeanor and humor made the event fun and engaging. 

Business Notes are short updates about what’s happening with Lyndale area businesses.

LNA is happy to report that because of you, our Annual Fund goals were not only met, but surpassed!  Through the generosity and commitment to community building, Lyndale community members donated $3,353 during our 2014 Annual Fund Drive.  Our goal was to raise $3,000 and thanks to you, we were in a good financial position to start this year. 

Individual giving accounts for upwards of 72 percent of all charitable giving and in the past year about 95 percent of households (countrywide) donated to the nonprofit sector.  Without individual giving, organizations like LNA would not be able to accomplish the wonderful things we do. 

On Saturday, February 14th, community members and Lyndale staff gathered to thank Taylor Shevey for all her hard work at Lyndale the last four years and wish her the best in her next adventure!

Spring is fast approaching and as I’m sure you’ve noticed there is a lot of trash along our boulevards and streets when the snow melts!

We’re hoping for melted snow and warm weather for our spring neighborhood cleanup on Saturday, April 18th. You can come to the Lyndale Neighborhood Community Center between 10 and 1 that day to pick up treats, a route and garbage bags to assist your cleaning!

We look forward to seeing you and making sure our neighborhood is clean for spring!  For more information contact Jennifer at / 612.824.9402 x12.

Homeowner Eligibility
Metro Paint-A-Thon is a program that helps low-income seniors and people with permanent physical disabilities continue to live independently in their own homes. A volunteer team is matched to scrape, prime, and paint the exterior of each eligible home/garage, thereby keeping it well-maintained, beautiful, and an asset to the neighborhood. All of this is done at no cost to the homeowner.

Eligible Homeowners Must:

The Crime & Safety Committee meeting was Tuesday, January 13th at the 5th Police Precinct.

On Wednesday, January 7th Jamie Graham DDS and Anna Seime DDS from Fiant Dental attended our housing meeting to present information about the “halo style” sign they plan to have installed on the new dental office at 3225 Lyndale Avenue and to ask for support for the Expansion of Conditional Use Permit. Because the business is in a residential area the signage must be approved by the City.

The Lyndale Open House fast approaches! This year’s Open House will take place on Wednesday, April 8th from 5:30-8pm (note the change from Friday to Wednesday).

The Lyndale Open House will once again take place at the Lyndale Community School (34th and Grand) and will be your best chance to catch up with community organizations, taste food from local restaurants, and play games with your kids at the carnival.
