February 2010 Archives

You are invited to a meeting with us to discuss your concerns and questions.  The meeting will be on March 10th at 6:30 p.m. at Waite Park, 1810 34th Ave NE to meet and converse with the Lieutenant and the Crime Prevention Specialist who work in your neighborhood.

Lt. Whisney, who supervises officers who work in your neighborhood, will provide information on:

  • How you can help the police,
  • Staffing in the precinct, and
  • Crime trends.
Carol Oosterhuis, the Crime Prevention Specialist for your neighborhood, will also present information about some programs, including:

  • Community Impact Statements and Crime Alerts
  • 311
  • Youth Crime Prevention in Northeast
We are inviting individuals from the neighborhood boards and individuals who have helped coordinate block events recently and other concerned community members in Audubon, Columbia, and Waite Park Neighborhoods to this meeting.

If you have a specific concern, such as a problem address on your block, please call your Crime Prevention Specialist at (612) 673-2874 to discuss the issue, before the meeting.  We ask you to do this for two reasons.  First, we do not want you to wait for the meeting to report concerns; and secondly, we want to research information, so we can answer your questions and at the meeting.

We thank you for your commitment to building a safer community for yourself, your family and your neighbors.

For questions, contact:

Carol Oosterhuis, Crime Prevention Specialist
Minneapolis Police Department, 2nd Precinct

Lily's featured at Heavy Table

Lily's at 33rd and Central was recently featured in a glowing story at Heavy Table.

In a seemingly endless sea of Caribous and Starbucks, it can be difficult to find an independently owned gem of a coffee shop to get your caffeine fix. Harder yet is to find a place that invites guests in for a broader, community-minded experience. A favorite few places throughout the Twin Cities come to mind when seeking this kind of experience, and new to my list is Lily's on 33rd and Central in Northeast Minneapolis. from In Brief.

Lily's is open from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm Tuesday through Sunday. They are open until 8:00 pm on Wednesday evenings. Starting in April, Lily's will be open until 8:00 pm Tuesday through Sunday.
