Greening Committee Update

I-35W Sound Barrier Wall - On 2nd Ave. from Minnehaha Creek to 42nd St.

We are looking to develop a partnership with MnDOT regarding the care and maintenance of the new trees, plants and flowers along 2nd Avenue South from Minnehaha Creek to 42nd Street

The current maintenance contract for the new plantings comes to an end this June. From that point on, maintenance of the land will need to rely on neighborhood volunteers to cut grass,  weed,  or add new plantings along our thoroughfares.

In order to remain a vibrant community, we look to our community members to join us in this necessary volunteer effort to be coordinated by the FRNNG Greening Committee. You don't have to live along 2nd Ave. to participate in this beautifying project! 

Studies have shown that neighborhoods, who have highway boulevards that are well maintained, add a nice view for neighbors and drivers  SLOW TRAFFIC AND REDUCE LITTER and vandalism. 

VOLUNTEER NOW!  Be part of the "We Love Our Neighborhood" project.  The Greening Committee meets regularly to plan and schedule.   To get involved, please contact the FRNNG Greening Committee at or to get your block involved, contact your block leader.

For the Field Regina Northrop Neighborhood, please send any ideas or concerns you may have to the FRNNG Greening Committee at
