Extending Neighborhoods 2020 public comment deadline to September 30

Submit your comments by September 30
Neighborhoods 2020
Dear neighborhood and community leaders,

The City of Minneapolis and its residents have experienced heartbreak, tragedy and multiple crises over the past four months. Given the difficulty of engaging the community at this time, the Neighborhoods 2020 Steering Committee has recommended that the Neighborhoods 2020 public comment period be extended until September 30, 2020.

The Neighborhoods 2020 program guidelines are more consequential than ever for the future of our City. The equity and inclusion recommendations outlined in this document form the cornerstone of our commitment to have an equitable neighborhood funding program for all of our residents.

During this extended public comment period, if your neighborhood organization would like to submit an updated public comment to replace an existing submission, please email neighborhoods2020 with the subject line “Revised Public Comment.”

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your steven.gallagher.

As always, NCR is available to assist organizations in this unprecedented time.

Sincerely,

Be Safe with Fireworks, Keep 911 Open for Emergencies

Fourth of July fireworks are part of Independence Day celebrations, and the noise complaints and safety issues they can generate lead to high call volumes at 911 call centers across the country. The City wants to make sure folks stay safe during “fireworks season” and know what to do if they have fireworks-related complaints.

Fireworks safety

  • Read, understand and follow the instructions on each device prior to using.
  • Use fireworks with close adult supervision.
  • Choose a safe place to use fireworks. Fireworks should only be ignited outdoors and away from animals, buildings, storage tanks, brush or combustible materials.
  • Anyone acting in an irresponsible manner or who appears to be under the influence of alcohol or other drugs should not handle or discharge fireworks.
  • Keep fireworks away from small children and store them in a cool dry location away from sources of ignition (heat and flames).
  • Never ignite fireworks inside another container, such as inside a bottle or can.

What’s legal, what’s not

  • Non-explosive fireworks are legal in Minneapolis. Examples include sparklers, cones, tubes that spark, snakes and party poppers.
  • It is legal to use these types of fireworks in your yard or on your sidewalk.
  • Fireworks that explode or take off are illegal in Minneapolis. Examples include firecrackers, bottle rockets, missiles, roman candles, mortars and shells.
  • It is illegal to use any fireworks on public property including roads, alleys, schools and parks.

When to call 911

For fireworks-related issues that pose life safety threats or fire hazards, residents should call 911, and police, fire or medical help will be dispatched.

Examples of calls that should go to 911 include:

  • A person injured by fireworks.
  • Airborne fireworks landing on a building or wooded area posing a fire risk.
  • The size of a fireworks gathering and unruly behavior beginning to pose a threat to others.

Make noise reports online

Reducing the number of noise complaints to 911 will allow emergency calls to be answered as quickly as possible. On a typical Fourth of July evening, Minneapolis 911 receives hundreds of calls per hour, most of which are related to fireworks noise complaints. On a normal day, Minneapolis 911 will receive fewer than 100 calls per hour. Because of the volume, police officers cannot be dispatched to each fireworks noise incident around the Fourth of July but calls will be prioritized to ensure public safety.

Instead of calling 911 for Fourth of July noise reports, people are asked to make noise reports online; the reports will be reviewed during normal business hours. Noise reports may also be made through the 311 mobile app or by calling 311. Although Minneapolis 311 is closed July 4, the mobile application can be used any time to make a report. City staff will review the complaint during normal business hours when offices open again and may follow up with the property owner the complaint references.

Midtown Farmers Market

Take a Deep Breath…

Markets on Saturday, June 27 and Tuesday, June 30

Right now, especially in Minneapolis, there is a lot going on that can cause anxiety, stress, and tension. While it’s important not to forget why we are where we are right now, it is also important to remember to take care of yourself.

We invite you to come to the market and take a breath. Focus on feeding your body and your spirit with fresh and local foods. Take this week to try your skills on a new recipe or make an old family favorite. Get some maple syrup for a Sunday brunch. Make the most colorful salad you’ve ever seen. Eat all the strawberries in the box before you even make it home. Do what makes you feel some joy.

If what makes you feel joy is not cooking at all, we have you covered there too. On Tuesdays you can get pizza from Geek Love Cafe or munch on some cheese curds. On Saturdays, we have breakfast burritos, sandwiches, curry, samosas, pakoras, empanadas, pizza, baked goods, nuts, and more. Let our vendors do the cooking for you.

We also wanted to remind people about our SNAP/EBT program. We match up to $10 at each market. So if you spend $10 we give you $10, and you can do that twice a week. And for everyone, don’t forget to bring some cash to the market as well. Not every vendor takes cards, and the closest ATM is not very close.

We are open Tuesdays 3pm-7pm and Saturdays 8am-1pm. We hope to see you there!

What’s Available and In Season?

Bedding plants, asparagus, cucumbers, green onions, radishes, rhubarb, arugula, collards and other greens, tomatoes, napa cabbage, turnips, garlic scapes, strawberries, lamb, beef, pork, poultry, samosas, mango lassis, bread, coffee, breakfast burritos, eggs, cheese, pizza, maple syrup, honey, and more!

*Always subject to change. Not every item listed is available at both markets.

Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office

HCSO To Adopt Appointment System for Permit to Carry Applications

Since the beginning of pandemic, the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office has maintained full operations for issuing permits to carry firearms in room 22 of Minneapolis City Hall. We have adjusted the layout of the office and added technology to protect our staff and the public applying for permits.

As we continue to adjust to best practices for managing public contact during a pandemic, and to reduce wait time for people seeking permits, we will be going to an appointment system for receiving permits effective Wednesday July 1, 2020.

People walking in without an appointment will not be able to apply for a permit.

Those seeking a permit to carry a firearm will need to make an appointment by calling 612-348-8008. At their appointment time, permit seekers should bring their completed application, application fee (payable by cash or check, or credit card with an additional 2.5% processing fee) and Identification. Details can be found here. We anticipate appointments should last about ten minutes.

Per Executive Order, the City of Minneapolis requires all people coming into City Hall to wear face masks.

Sheriff Hutchinson’s Statement on Violence in Minneapolis and Surrounding Communities

Sheriff Hutchinson’s Statement on Violence in Minneapolis and Surrounding Communities

June 23, 2020 (Minneapolis) – Sheriff Hutchinson released the following statement regarding the recent violence in Minneapolis and surrounding communities:

I want to address the horrendous violence that is happening in Hennepin County and talk about what the men and women of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office are doing about it.

In the past month, more than 100 people have been shot in Minneapolis; there have been additional shootings in some of our suburban cities as well.

It has to stop.

Our communities are engaged in a dangerous spate of violence, disproportionally affecting communities of color. As a community we have enough to grieve about without compounding this with the deaths of young people lost to gunfire or experiencing life changing injuries.

It might be easier for police, in these turbulent times, to keep a low profile and fly under the radar. But it isn’t the right thing to do. We are here to serve the people of this community, and we will partner with Minneapolis and the other agencies who need our help to address this outbreak of gun violence:

We have met with our counterparts at the City of Minneapolis and have been in touch with the chiefs of other local departments as well as community organizations. We have pledged the full resources of Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office to address the criminals who are shooting people in our community. Specifically:

  • We will provide patrol resources to assist Minneapolis and other cities with additional presence in areas where violence has been occurring
  • We are utilizing our investigative resources to gather evidence and bring people to justice who are involved in these violent attacks
  • We are providing intelligence to all of the law enforcement agencies involved, including link analyses—showing who is involved in these violent attacks and how best to disrupt them.

Let me be absolutely clear: The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office is not afraid to act to ensure the safety of the people. Our motto is “Serving and protecting all in the community by delivering equal justice, safety, and wellness.” We are now working to help stop crime and make the streets safe in a manner that does nothing to further erode the trust between law enforcement and the community.

This is why words matter, political leaders’ words matter. Now is not a time for partisan political battles. It’s a time for unity to pass reform, to pass laws to prevent violence and to hold people accountable for ALL violence.

It is a tough time to stand here and say we are going to make arrests when the community, rightly, has so many concerns about policing. But we can’t wait for the change before we address the violence that is plaguing our county right now. We will act to address the violence now, and we are asking for the support of every citizen to prevent even more heartbreak in our community.

RELEASED LEVEL 3 SEX OFFENDER, 3000 Block of 5th Ave S, Central Neighborhood: Andre Benjamin Stigger

Subject: RELEASED LEVEL 3 SEX OFFENDER, 3000 Block of 5th Ave S, Central Neighborhood: Andre Benjamin Stigger

Hello from John B. We have learned that released Level 3 sex offender Andre Benjamin Stigger is now living on the 3000 block of 5th Ave S in the Central neighborhood.

Stigger has a history of sexual contact, including sexual touching and penetration, with a male child he knows. This happened in 1994. He has served his court sentence and was released from custody on 11/21/19. His sentence has expired. He is not wanted by police at this time.

Level 3 sex offenders are those determined by the MN Department of Corrections as being most likely to offend again. We are notifying the community of Stigger’s location pursuant to Minnesota Statute 244.052. This is meant to provide information, not increase fear.

Please note that neither the Minneapolis Police Department nor Hennepin County Corrections decide where released Level 3 sex offenders will live.

More details are attached and reprinted below. If you have questions about this process, call MPD Sex Crimes at 612-673-3932. Please contact me at john.baumann if you want information about other Level 3 sex offenders in your area or personal safety information.

This message and the attachment are public information, so feel free to post this notice and spread the word.

Thanks for your interest.

Last Release from Confinement Date: 11/21/2019
Supervision Agent: Not applicable. Sentence expired.
Offense: Andre Stigger (at age 29) engaged in sexual contact with a known male child. Contact included sexual touching and penetration (1994).
Address: 3000 block of 5th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55408
The Minneapolis Police Department is releasing this information pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 244.052 and 253D. This statute authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform communities of a public registrant’s release from prison or a secure treatment facility when the Minneapolis Police Department believes that the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.

The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct or another offense that requires registration with law enforcement pursuant to Minnesota Statues 243.166 or 243.167.

This individual has served the sentence imposed on them by the court and is transitioning into the community. This notification is not intended to increase fear but rather raise awareness. Law enforcement believes that an informed public is a safer public.

The Minneapolis Police Department may not direct where this individual does or does not reside, nor can this agency direct where they work or go to school.

Convicted sexual and predatory individuals have always been released to live in our communities. It was not until the passage of the Registration Act that law enforcement had an ability to track movement of these individuals after their initial release. With the passage of the Community Notification Act law enforcement may now share information about many of these individuals with the public. Abuse of this information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered person is unacceptable and such acts could be charged as a crime. Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.
