Since 1991, engaging residents and responding to issues.
Set 3 engagement goals:
(1) Increase involvement in organics recycling in Armatage
(2) Engage with under-represented residents
(3) Engage with renters
Hosted an organics recycling workshop in June and regularly promote organics through our various forms of communication.
Hosted several “happy hour” events to give residents a more casual way to connect with the board and each other.
Had our first utility box wrap installed at 60th & Penn.
Annual meeting was a bike-theme event with presentations and information from: Bike Fixtation, Perennial Cycle, Midtown Greenway Coalition, Hennepin County Commissioner Marion Greene, Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, and Cycling Museum of Minnesota. (Facebook photo album.)
