Welcome to the East Harriet Neighborhood
East Harriet is bordered by 36th Street on the north and 46th Street to the south. Lyndale Avenue is the eastern boundary; Lake Harriet and Lakewood Cemetery largely make up the western border of the neighborhood. In addition to these Minneapolis landmarks, Lyndale Park Gardens and Rose Gardens, the Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary are located within East Harriet. Many houses in the neighborhood are two-story homes, set back from the streets.

The Clean Walk Program is an EHFNA community initiative to provide tools for residents to help keep our neighborhood and community clean.
The Clean Walk Program is designed for people that love to take casual walks in the East Harriet neighborhood. We are fortunate to live in an area with beautiful green spaces, and it is important for us to try and do our part to keep those areas clean.
How does the Clean Walk program work? Just contact the EHFNA at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a garbage claw and 10 biodegradable bags. Then you take the claw and a bag with you whenever you go on a walk, and pick up garbage along the way. Simple as that! The point of this program is to encourage residents to do what you can, where you can, whenever you feel like it. You don’t have to grab every piece of garbage you walk by, and you don’t have to do this every day. The idea is that if everyone does a little bit here and there, it adds up to quite a lot of litter cleaned up in our community. In addition, it makes for a more sustainable solution to keeping our neighborhoods and parks clean, since walking around our neighborhood is probably already part of your routine.
To receive your free garbage claw and 10 bag supply, please email email@example.com with your name and address or intersection (to verify East Harriet residency). After that, you will receive a reply with instructions on how to obtain your Clean Walk Program materials. Supplies are limited and only one claw and package of bags are allowed per household. Your email address will be kept private, and only used to send an optional follow-up survey to gather feedback on the program.

The EHFNA board has been discussing Redistricting and will take a vote to on endorsing a plan. One discussion has been Matt Perry’s Map to have the East Harriet Neighborhood in one ward instead of split into two wards as it is now. See that plan below:
After every census, Minneapolis updates the boundaries of its 13 City Council wards and six Park Board districts to reflect new population counts. The Redistricting Group, made up of 24 Minneapolis volunteers, builds the new maps with input from their communities. The Redistricting Group needs your help with the redistricting project to make sure all voices are heard.
