They are both committed to nurturing and improving the larger society as well as their home and neighborhood in Lyndale.

Asphalt coming tomorrow!
Thomas and Sons is ready for the first layer of asphalt. They intend to start tomorrow and will work towards getting the first layer in between Lake St and 32nd St, with the exception of the intersection of 31st St. Following the first layer of asphalt, the plan is to start curbs and driveways on Friday. This would allow time over the weekend for curing.
Local access to Office Max and Shops will continue to be on Nicollet from Lake St. Access to the Wells Fargo drive-thru will still be off 31st St.
Thomas and Sons will continue their work at 31st St as well. Additional information will be shared when it’s available.

This summer LNA is teaming up with our neighborhood block clubs, artist Carly Schmitt, and the Youth Farm and Market Project to bring a bit of color, creativity and community to the utility boxes around Lyndale. You may have noticed that the utility boxes in your area are regularly tagged with graffiti, cleaned up, and then tagged again. LNA’s experience in combating graffiti shows that utility boxes are among the most tagged structures in the neighborhood; this is largely due to how visible and easy the utility boxes are to see and tag from the street.
