Open Streets Will Soon Be In N.E. Minneapolis

Beth Wagner,

Untitled drawingOpen Streets cannot be stopped! First Northside Greenway, then Lyndale Avenue, and now Open Streets is rolling into Northeast Minneapolis, on Sunday July 27th. Only two weeks out from today, Central Avenue NE.  will be transformed into a safe, car-free area for people to bike, walk, play and hang with local businesses and artists. Come be a part of the magic and sign up to volunteer today!

How can you get involved?
Volunteers help with everything from facilitating chalk art activities at intersections to helping us keep the street clean and car free. We’ll need about 90 volunteers to sign up for this event, so help us keep the momentum of Open Streets going by volunteering for a couple hours on July 27th at Central Avenue NE! You choose the location, the time, and what you’ll do — we give you a t-shirt, a volunteer appreciation party, and a lot of high fives. Couldn’t get much better than that!  Check out for a complete listing of volunteer options and to get involved.
