NRRC Headquarter's Cistern Installation is happening July 11th!

We have another opportunity to learn about rainwater management in the NRRC Zone! With help from a grant from MWMO, Dave Stark with Rain Water Management will demonstrate the installation of an 800-gallon cistern and introduce us to some new concepts in rainwater capture. Please let us know if you can make it by emailing me back here. The event is next Thursday, July 11 from 6-8 PM at our future NRRC Headquarters (still under construction) at 1303 Golden Valley Road. This information will be important for Board Members as we maintain the environmental initiatives at the NRRC Headquarters to help educate our community about water conservation and environmental initiatives. We will provide pizza and refreshments. You are welcome to invite neighbors as well. I hope to hear from you soon!!

North High School Construction Project Updates

The Minneapolis Public School Board of Education approved the contract for proceeding with North High School’s construction project.


To keep everyone informed about the progress of the construction at North, the project’s website will be updated periodically. On that page, people can sign up to receive email alerts of progress during construction. I encourage you to sign up for the updates as you can repurpose this information to share with your community.


Since we are closing in on the start date for North’s remodeling, I wanted to share the following information that you may use to inform your staff and families.
