While the ANA isn’t hosting a tree lighting event this year, the annual neighborhood-sponsored holiday lights are up in Armatage Park along the east side of the building! 🌟
We hope you will join us in supporting the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery by donating new, unopened formula, diapers, pull-ups, children’s toiletries, new with tags clothing and more now through December 20. Check out the Crisis Nursery’s full wish list at https://www.crisisnursery.org/donate/donate-items/ and look for the donation bin in the lobby of the Armatage Rec Center.
Huge thanks to the 160 community members who weighed in on the funding plan. The overall approval rate of 89.4%. Based on the comments received, the plan stayed consistent and the remaining $15,000 was allocated to the following priorities:
- An extra $7,000 to Traffic Calming & Pedestrian Safety, bringing the plan total to $17,000,
- $4,000 to Park Improvements (joining the $24,000 approved for parks in previous years by the ANA),
- $4,000 to Environmental & Greening Programming.
The final plan was discussed and approved unanimously. It will now head to the City for legal review and final approval this winter. Please contact the ANA at 612.466.0296 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
