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.

A Transportation Plan and Scooter Survey
The City of Minneapolis is updating its Transportation Action Plan. When complete, the plan will guide transportation actions for the City and its partners over the next 10 years to realize the vision set in the Minneapolis 2040. Information on the plan is available on the plan website, go.minneapolismn.gov.
The City is also creating a Vision Zero Action Plan, which will outline steps to achieve zero traffic-related deaths and severe injuries on our streets. More information on Vision Zero is available on the website, visionzerompls.com.
Throughout 2019, the City of Minneapolis Public Works Department will offer many ways to provide input and feedback on the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan and the Vision Zero Action Plan.
In August of 2018, Minneapolis Public Works launched a four-month shared motorized scooter pilot with vendors Bird and Lime. As Public Works considers reintroducing scooters in 2019, they are gathering public feedback to help determine where residents would like to see them. Take the scooter survey to give your feedback!
