New Washburn Tot Lot Pollinator Garden
The ANA is so excited to announce that the neighborhood has received grant funding from the State of Minnesota’s Lawns to Legumes Neighborhood Demonstration Program and the Minneapolis People for Parks Foundation to fund a pollinator garden at the Washburn Tot Lot! The new garden will be installed along the alley to provide a safe, beautiful barrier that will benefit our local pollinators!
Community engagement will begin this fall with a pop-up event at the Washburn Tot Lot on Saturday, September 17 from 10:00–11:30am and and we anticipate the new garden will be installed in May 2023 with our partner, Metro Blooms.

Armatage Safety Rebates
The ANA offers up to $100 per household per calendar year to each Armatage household (both renters and homeowners) for security enhancements including items such as doorbell camera systems. We’ve made some changes to the program, including a $200 lifetime cap so we can keep the program running while reaching as many neighbors as possible.
