Sponsor the Armatage Summer Festival
The Summer Festival is a great way for area businesses to connect with attendees, highlight their work, and get lots of recognition for making this much-loved event possible. Our 2018 Summer Festival brought out tons of neighbors to enjoy music, great food vendors, an awesome car show, raffles, and fun and games for kids of all ages.
Sponsors are featured in neighborhood communications that reach every address in Armatage, in advertising for the event, on our website, through our social media channels and the eNews, and are recognized at the event through a banner or lawn sign (attendance ranges from 500 – 1,500). To sponsor the Summer Festival, visit our website at https://armatage.org/events/summer-festival/ or contact our Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan feedback by June 6
Staff are collecting feedback through June 6 via online surveys and comment maps where you can offer suggestions on improving transportation infrastructure, take surveys on each of the Transportation Action Plan topics, and leave detailed feedback about your thoughts on Vision Zero-related safety concerns.
Watch an online open house and Q&A session to learn more about the two plans and how to get involved. In addition to the online forum, Public Works staff held community workshops, organization workshops, and a series of community dialogues throughout April to collect public input on ways to improve the city’s transportation system.

Adopt-A-Drain: Help Protect Our Lakes, Creeks and the Mississippi River!
When it rains, stormwater carries grass clippings, leaves, cigarette butts, pesticides, fertilizers, antifreeze, paint, gasoline, motor oil, and animal waste directly into Minneapolis lakes, creeks and the Mississippi River. Armatage residents and businesses can help keep our waters clean by adopting storm drains in their neighborhood and committing to cleaning them regularly.
The Metro Area has launched a new version of the Adopt-A-Drain program for residents who want to help keep our waters clean and clear. This new program will make the adopting process easier and quicker. You will be able to adopt or un-adopt storm drains instantly and you will have the option to name your adopted storm drains. You will still find news and tips at the Minneapolis Adopt-A-Drain website, where you can will find a link to the new metro-wide program:
You will need to sign up on the new website and by creating a user profile and password, you will be able to access the new self-service features. Email AdoptADrain@Minneapolismn.gov if you have issues or questions.
