13th Annual Eastside BBQ: Thursday, August 29

Join thousands of your friends, neighbors and fellow community members for the 13th Annual Eastside Barbeque on Thursday, August 29, 3:30- 7:30 p.m. at Edison High School, 700 – 22nd Avenue NE. This event grows each year as it brings together community, businesses, and schools to show support for our local students and their families. It occurs the same evening as the open houses of all the Eastside public schools, including Edison High School, Northeast Middle School, Marcy Open School, Webster Elementary, Waite Park Elementary, Pillsbury Elementary, and Sheridan Arts & Spanish Dual Immersion School. Visit the school websites for details on open house hours:

The Barbeque will be serving up brats, hamburgers, veggie burgers and hotdogs with all the fixings. There will also be music, games, and a variety of other activities for the whole family. This is a unique opportunity to meet your neighbors, support this community’s students and school staff, enjoying a meal with friends, and exploring the Edison High School Green Campus.

The Eastside Barbeque is only possible through the hard work of dozens upon dozens of volunteers and the generous support of its sponsors.

Census 2020 is canvassing neighborhoods now

Census workers have begun canvassing neighborhoods to count the number of dwellings before census questionnaires are mailed out. Learn how the Census Bureau does this and how to verify a census worker’s credentials here.

In 2020, the US census will determine how many congressional representatives Minnesota will have for the next decade, and will impact funding for schools and local communities. Getting an accurate and complete count of all residents is vital.

If you would like more information on how neighborhoods can help ensure a Minneapolis Complete Count, please contact your neighborhood support specialist or Alberder Gillespie, census 2020 coordinator, at

City Introduces Regulatory Services Violations Dashboard

A new resource allows people to look up information on Regulatory Services inspections to see how the department works to help protect residents and improve the livability of Minneapolis. Regulatory Services inspectors enforce fire and housing violations of the Minneapolis code of ordinances and State fire code to keep Minneapolis safer, healthier and livable for all. Violations range from nuisance violations, such as unkept grass, to safety violations, such as having no fire alarms.

You can:

  • Look up information on a property to see if an issue has been reported or resolved.
  • Learn about the condition of a property, both past and present.
  • Understand the maintenance and compliance trends of property owners and managers.
  • Dig into nearly 30 years’ worth of enforcement information to undertake your own analysis.
  • Search for enforcement history for a specific neighborhood or ward to understand how Regulatory Services serves your community.

The information updates each morning to provide the previous day’s work. (Information on follow-up actions for the violations, such as citations, are not included, nor are violations issued by other City departments, such as Business Licensing.)  See the full Regulatory Services Violations Dashboard here.


8:00- Adjourn
