The City of Minneapolis has launched a new web site where the public can learn how the City is putting federal recovery funds to work to get our economy moving. As Minneapolis begins to receive funding from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), it is making transparency a top priority to ensure that residents and others have easy access to information on how the City is pursing and spending recovery funds.

The Minneapolis Economic Recovery site has an up-to-date list of recovery grants that the City has either received or that are in the application pipeline. It includes economic recovery resources for residents and businesses, and there's also an opportunity for you to submit your ideas for making the most of the federal recovery funding.

The Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board will be showing the movie March of the Penguins at Audubon Park on July 7th. Naturalists will be on hand prior the movie to provide fun and free activities. The movie is scheduled will begin at dusk (around 9:15).
