Arbor Day at Waite Park is a success!

Thank you to all the teachers, parents, students and community members that made Arbor Day at Waite Park a success! The students from Waite Park Elementary School planted over 70 trees around the school and park with help from the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board's Forestry Division and The Home Depot. Hopefully these trees will thrive and become a fixture for the community for years to come.

A special thanks to Dan Haugen for putting together this video from the event.

First Annual Northeast Push Cart Derby

| No Comments

Help us celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Northeast Parade by entering the First Annual Push Cart Derby at Waite Park! All you need to do is get a team together and build a car that can go, turn and stop. There will be a division for children under 5 to race with their parents/guardians and a division for the race-hardened derby die hards. Local Northeast artists will be on hand to award prizes for the most artistic cars.

More information can be found at our Push Cart Derby page.

LiveMSP launched on April 23 as a resource geared toward homebuyers that are looking to purchase a home in Minneapolis or Saint Paul. LiveMSP strives to be a one-stop shop for information about city living--including profiles of all Minneapolis and Saint Paul's neighborhoods, a directory of the dozens of different incentive programs, and lots of links to get you more involved in city life. The site is being funded by the Family Housing Fund, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide safe, affordable, sustainable homes to families and children in the Twin Cities metropolitan area through ongoing partnerships with the public and private sectors. LiveMSP features information and links on each Twin City neighborhood, information on neighborhood walkability, homebuying information, as well as information on the various neighborhood incentive programs for homebuyers in each area (don't forget our $50 security rebate program and $100 block club grant).
