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.
National Night Out August 2
The 33rd Annual NNO is Tuesday, August 2, 2016. National Night Out is an annual nationwide event that encourages residents to get out in the community, holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention.
Register online to block off your street or alley by July 19 and it is free. The cost goes up to $100 if registered between July 20 -27. You cannot block off your street or alley after the 27th.
Note: Not every street can be blocked off depending on the traffic flow. Generally, bus routes and high traffic streets cannot be used for block events.
You will need permission of 75% of your neighbors to be approved for street closure -keep their names and addresses handy in the event your permit application needs to be reviewed.

Absentee Voting Begins
Early voting is now open in a new location, downtown, 217 S third St. In-person absentee voting is no longer at City Hall. The new site allows more privacy and easier access than the City Hall Rotunda did.
Early in-person voting is especially helpful for those who need special accommodations, such as language support, extra time, attention and onsite resources.
Standard hours throughout the absentee voting period are 8 am - 4:30 pm Monday to Friday. During the final two weeks before each election, these hours will be extended and include weekend times. These hours will be posted on the website vote.minneapolis.gov once they have been set.
