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.

East Harriet Community Meeting Update
Last night East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association (EHFNA) hosted a neighborhood community meeting regarding the project development plans at 40th & Lyndale Ave S. Over 65 residents attended. CM Meg Tuthill was also in attendance. After introductions and brief overview of the property history, Paul Dzubnar, developer, and Jim Smart, architect, reviewed project details and design. Afterwards residents had the opportunity to ask questions, make comments and express their opinion. Specific questions were raised regarding parking, noise abatement and hours. Further questions, comments or concerns can be directed to Paul Dzubnar at firstname.lastname@example.org
Whether or not a resident was able to attend last night's meeting, there are the following opportunities for continued community engagement on the parking variance and beer/wine license:
NOTE: The developer had two options to address off street parking: a parking overlay for the plat between SA and the existing house, which would require a number of variance requests OR rezone the plat from residential to C1. Either way, signatures need to be secured from neighbors. Parking spaces are determined by restaurant occupancy.
The EHFNA Board will also be voting on the rezoning for the parking spaces at this week's meeting, Wednesday, May 1 and forwarding that information to the City Planning, a vote which is advisory in nature. East Harriet's Housing, Zoning and Business Committee (HZB) and EHFNA Board members reviewed information last week and many Committee and Board members attended again last night's meeting.
Once the rezoning for parking is approved there will be a public meeting scheduled at a later date and facilitated by the City of Minneapolis with regards to the Charter Wine and Strong Beer License.

History of Heffelfinger Fountain
Heffelfinger Fountain Undergoes Repair in 2012
Heffelfinger Fountain Ready in Time for Mother's Day
The Heffelfinger Fountain, located within the Rose Garden at Lake Harriet, has been repaired over the winter and will be running better than ever on Mothers Day this year.
The fountain was purchased from an Italian villa by Frank Heffelfinger and in 1944 donated by him to the Minneapolis parks (see photo). Since then it has been a focal point of visitors' enjoyment of the gardens, serving as the backdrop for countless weddings and the inspiration for numerous artworks. The fountain is a highlight in our remarkable park system.
In recent years, the fountain has been declining and this past winter, the MPRB agreed to repair the mechanical aspects of the fountain. The MPRB hired a fountain engineer to dismantle the sculpture and re-plumb the inside. The fountain will be re-installed before Mothers Day. In addition, plans are underway for the MPRB to remove plumbing underground, a source of iron rust deposits which disfigure and damage the sculpture.
Further work still needs to be done to stabilize the sculpture. An art conservator needs to clean the bronze, restore a protective barrier against future corrosion and re-fabricate missing pieces. Upon completion of this project, the fountain will be in good working order to continue to give pleasure and inspiration to park visitors for many years to come.
EHFNA will continue to provide updates on the project. For further information, please contact Kristina Hughes (cell 612 803 1405, email firstname.lastname@example.org).

6th District Off-Leash Dog Park To Close Temporarily May 1 for Final Construction
The Off-Leash Dog Park at Lyndale Farmstead Park will close temporarily on Wednesday, May 1 for finishing touches. The park opened on a temporary basis this January for a “preview” during the winter months to accommodate pet owners who were looking for a nearby area for their dogs to run. This opportunity gave everyone who is eagerly awaiting the new off-leash space to get a sneak preview of what the new park will have to offer.
There is still a significant amount of work to be done this spring, so as soon as the snow melts and the ground thaws, the final construction work and landscaping will begin. A grand opening is planned for summer 2013 when the full park will be completed. Sign up for email updates about the project and to get news about the opening by clicking here.
Once completed the park will feature (see plan here):
· A concrete entrance off of Dupont Avenue with a connecting concrete walk over to the primary seating area. The seating area will include benches and a shade structure.
· Landscape plantings encompassing the perimeter of the dog park, providing a soft edge and buffer.
Remember that all rules for off-leash recreation will apply when the park reopens and an Off-Leash Permit is required for all dogs. Permits can be obtained by calling customer service 612-230-6400 or online at www.minneapolisparks.org/dogparks.
The dog park entrance is located along Dupont Avenue South (Kings Highway) between West 38th and West 40th Streets. Parking for the dog park is on-street on West 38th and West 40th Streets or Bryant Avenue. Please note that there is no parking allowed on King’s Highway between 38th and 40th Streets or in the Park Board's operations center parking lot which accommodates the Park Board’s large trucks and mobile equipment and is locked during non-business hours.
