As part of the county’s program to rehabilitate and sell tax-forfeited properties, the house was stripped to the foundation and transformed into a three-bedroom, two-bath, “green,” energy-efficient home with a two-car garage. And it’s for sale -- at an affordable price to a qualified low-income buyer. The green reconstruction of the house has been a collaboration between county Taxpayer Services and Environmental Services (which financed part of the work with a $25,000 environmental grant) and the Kingfield Neighborhood Development Group. The reconstruction was patterned after Energy Star and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified design principles and building methods for minimal maintenance and low monthly utility costs, says Harold Troup, senior property management specialist for Taxpayer Services. The geothermal heating and cooling system will reduce the home’s former energy consumption by at least half. The house features long-life, low-petroleum asphalt shingles; formaldehyde-free lumber; low-toxin paints and stains; recycled products, including carpeting and a floor covering called marmoleum that contains flax; energy-efficient windows, appliances and electrical fixtures; a high-efficiency water heater; and rain-garden landscaping. Reconstruction was done by a local African-American small-business-enterprise contractor. The house was patterned after surrounding homes in the style of the era in which they were built. In the current mortgage market, it’s not easy to buy a house, especially for a low-income buyer. But through Hennepin County’s Tax-forfeited Property Affordable Housing Program, properties are rehabilitated for resale to the Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HCHRA). The HCHRA, in turn, sells the properties to the City of Lakes Community Land Trust (CLCLT), which then sells them to low-income buyers at an affordable price. Through the CLCLT, the homes are not only affordable today, but will remain perpetually affordable for future generations of low-income buyers if the homeowner ever decides to sell. The estimated market value of the reconstructed home is $200,000. CLCLT is offering the house at $142,000 to an income-qualified buyer. Hennepin’s Tax-forfeited Property Program encourages home ownership – critical to healthy neighborhoods. Whenever possible, tax-forfeited properties are rehabilitated and sold, putting them back on the tax rolls and no longer a burden to taxpayers. Construction costs are recovered through sale proceeds. Troup says renovation of tax-forfeited properties spurs other residents in the neighborhood to spruce up their homes too. “This house rehabilitation is good for the neighborhood and good for the environment,” says Troup. The house will be featured in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Home Tour April 25-26. For more information on how to buy this house, potential buyers should contact Jeff Washburne at CLCLT – 612-721-7556, x. 17, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the Hennepin County Tax-forfeited Property Program and remodeling of the Wentworth house, call Harold Troup, 612-348-2995. This project contributes to Hennepin's Cool County Initiative. Learn more at www.hennepin.us/coolcounty.

- Are there ways to deliver current services more cost-effectively?
- Are there services or programs that you believe should be cut or modified?
- Are there ways to save money without cutting services?
- Is the county funding something that others should pay for?
- What should be the county's priorities?

Learn how rain gardens are good for the environment and your pocketbook: Workshops in March and April
Dates: March and April Times: various Locations: various url: http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/news/20090313RainGardensWkshps.asp Want a garden that attracts birds and butterflies, helps protect our water resources and may even help reduce your monthly stormwater utility fee? Build a rain garden! Metro Blooms, a local organization that promotes and celebrates gardening is sponsoring rain garden workshops that will teach you how to install a rain garden using native plants that don’t require fertilizers or pesticides. Rain gardens allow rain and melting snow to seep naturally into the ground. This helps recharge groundwater and keeps contaminants from being washed into storm drains and carried to our lakes, rivers and creeks. Participants will also learn about downspout redirection and more eco-friendly lawn care. Workshop attendees can get a $65 native plant reimbursement grant. Metro Blooms has a complete listing of workshop dates and registration information. There is a $10 registration fee. To register in advance for the rain garden workshop of your choice, visit Metro Blooms or contact Noelle Hechtman at (651) 699-2426. Space is limited. Workshops are sponsored by Metro Blooms with support from the City of Minneapolis, the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, Hennepin County Environmental Services, Minneapolis Public Works Storm Water Education Fund, and Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.

Date: Saturday, March 28 Time: 8:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Location: Hennepin County Adult Corrections Facility Mens Building Address: 1145 Shenandoah Lane N, Plymouth Dear PEACE Partner: Many of you know and understand the enormous power of mentoring. We know now that the mentoring of ex-offenders recently released from prison can be the key to their ability to stay out of prison and rehabilitate their lives. In fact, a study just released by the Community Justice Project cites the following: “In 2008, only 13% of ex-offenders who received mentoring returned to prison (compared with a national average of 52%). Of those who stayed connected with their mentors following release, only 3% were re-incarcerated.” This compelling fact underlines that – if we are willing to commit the time – we all have the potential to change someone’s life, and the lives of those around them, for the better. On March 28th, 2009, The Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches, Minneapolis Police Department and Hennepin County Adult Correction Facility are hosting an in-depth training on how to mentor ex-offenders returning to the community. We at the PEACE Foundation urge you to consider participating in this training and becoming a mentor to an ex-offender. The details are: IN-DEPTH TRAINING: TRANSITION MENTORING To Help Ex-Offenders Returning to the Community Saturday, March 28, 2009 8:45am – 2:00pm Hennepin Co.

Dates: Saturday April 18 ($2.00 per adult) and Sunday, April 19 (free) Time: 8:00 to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sunday. Location: Van Dusen Event Center Address: 1900 LaSalle Avenue On April 18 and 19th , Stevens Square Community Organization (SSCO) will hold its annual rummage sale at the Van Dusen Event Center, 1900 LaSalle Avenue. Admission to the event is $2.00 per adult on Saturday, April 18th and free on Sunday, April 19th. Hours are 8am to 5pm Saturday and 10am to 3pm Sunday. The rummage sale, now in its sixth year, is organized by residents of the Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhood of Minneapolis. Proceeds from the event will fund neighborhood arts, greening, safety, and outreach programs. Hard hit by the current economic crisis, SSCO is looking to the rummage sale to bolster its financial health. “It's going to be an incredibly tough year for nonprofits,” says Steven Gallagher, executive director of SSCO. “There just isn't enough funding to go around. To maintain our current level of programming, we'll be depending heavily on the proceeds from the rummage sale and our other fundraising events. There's a lot riding on it.” Items donated by area residents and local businesses include furniture, housewares, antiques, collectibles, art, jewelry, toys, tools, books, bikes, and baby, kids, and adult clothing. Snacks and beverages will also be for sale. “We put a lot of effort into obtaining high-quality items,” says Linda Ferris, chair of the 6th Annual Rummage Sale planning committee. “This definitely isn't your average rummage sale. It offers collectors, bargain hunters, and green consumers the chance to find some amazing deals. It's really a win-win—the rummagers save money, SSCO raises funds, and everybody always has a wonderful time.” About Stevens Square Community Organization Stevens Square Community Organization, founded in 1976, is the officially-recognized citizen participation organization for the Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhood of Minneapolis.

url: http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/news/20090310SnowVideoWinner.asp A locally produced song-and-dance musical was chosen as the best video submitted during the City’s “Create your own Snow Emergency video” call for entries. The video, created by Cole Koehler of Northeast Minneapolis, features a band of merry neighbors singing “There’s No Business Like Snow Business” while they chisel ice from windshields and move their vehicles off the streets during what they think is a Snow Emergency. However, it ends with one neighbor using her cell phone to learn that a Snow Emergency was in fact, not declared. The moral of the story…use of one the City’s many tools it has in place, including email and phone alerts, text messages, and Web site notifications, to learn when a Snow Emergency is declared. Other contest entries feature a couple who get to relive a day when their car gets towed, a man who gets sucked into the Snow Emergency Web site on his personal computer, and a narrative on the many ways you can find out if a Snow Emergency has been declared. All of the entries will appear on City cable channel 14 for the remainder of the Snow Emergency season, which concludes April 1. The videos have also been posted on YouTube and City’s Snow Emergency Facebook page. The call for entries is part of an ongoing effort to communicate to younger drivers: a segment of the driving population that is more likely to be unaware of Snow Emergencies. The City has also created “Snow Emergency” profiles on the social networking sites Facebook and MySpace. These Web pages are updated whenever a Snow Emergency is declared. By “friending” Snow Emergency, drivers can keep tabs on the latest Snow Emergency status. Since the profile’s creation in December, more than 6,400 people on Facebook have become friends with Snow Emergency. For more information on Snow Emergencies and snow season parking, go to http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/snow/.
url: http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/news/20090310BikeGrant.asp Just in time for spring comes news that a federal grant will help Minneapolis become even more bike-friendly. Already a national leader when it comes to bicycle commuting, Minneapolis is receiving $1.75 million grant from Bike Walk Twin Cities, a federal source of funding to increase biking and walking and decrease driving, to help fund the Minneapolis Bike Share Program. The infusion of funding brings the program closer to the $3.3 million needed to become operational. The Minneapolis Bike Share Program will create the nation’s largest municipal bike-share system right here in Minneapolis. Plans call for a thousand bikes to be available in the areas of Downtown, Uptown, and the University of Minnesota campus. Bikers would either purchase a season pass for around $50 or pay $5 for one-day use. At the end of their bike trips, riders could then return their bikes to any one of 75 kiosks. When completed, the bike share program will be run by the nonprofit organization Nice Ride Minnesota. Some kiosks could begin operations by the end of 2009, with a full launch expected in 2010. Two other Minneapolis bike/walk projects also received funding from Bike Walk Twin Cities:
- $400,000 for construction of biking improvements along portions of 17th and Bloomington Avenues. This bike walk corridor would stretch all the way from 24th Street to the city’s border with Richfield.
- $350,000 for pedestrian enhancements along 5th Street NE and 7th Street N.

url: http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/news/20090309EarthHour.asp Minneapolis participating in “Earth Hour” to help raise awareness of climate change City offices will join other buildings in Minneapolis to go dark for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 28 as part of the 2009 Earth Hour program. The Minneapolis City Council Committee on Health, Energy and Environment approved a resolution Monday, March 9, to participate in Earth Hour for the second consecutive year and turn off all uses of electricity in municipal buildings that are not required for life, safety or operations. The decorative lighting on the underside of the Stone Arch Bridge will also be turned off for the night, as will the City Hall’s clock tower neon lights. According to the State of Minnesota, electricity use in the state accounts for 35 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to global climate change. Participating individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and demonstrate their commitment to finding solutions. In 2009, organizers expect more than 1,000 cities in 100 countries to participate. In Minneapolis, in coordination with the City, 20 buildings are signed up already, from the Red Stag Supper Club to many of the tall lighted buildings downtown including IDS Center, Wells Fargo Center and Target headquarters. City leaders encourage businesses and individuals to participate and support the effort to fight climate change. Earth Hour began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. During Earth Hour 2008, more than 50 million people in 400 cities on all seven continents turned off their lights. Learn more, sign up and share your ideas at http://www.earthhourUS.org. The resolution to participate in Earth Hour will go before the full City Council March 27.

League of Women Voters 612-333-6319 url: www.lwvmpls.org The League of Women Voters of Minneapolis, in partnership with the Hennepin County Library and the County Library Foundation, will present an evening of discussion of the 2010 census as a State of Democracy Project on Wednesday, March 25 from 6 to 8:30 P.M. in Pohlad Hall of the Minneapolis Central Library. The event is being held to learn about the census process and the economic, social, and political consequences of not being counted as well as to prevent an undercount of the upcoming 2010 census. One result of an undercounted census is the loss of an electoral vote in the House of Representatives, while another is that federal funds are distributed in part based upon the state's population. The evening's speakers will be state demographer Tom Gillaspy, LWVMN Executive Director Keesha Gaskins, Marsha Avner of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, and Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin. The goal of the State of Democracy Project, initiated by a generous grant from the Joyce Foundation, is to determine the health of democracy in Minnesota and to develop, in collaboration with other organizations and the public, recommendations on how and where we can improve. The effort also seeks to identify the most significant shortcomings in Minnesota's political systems and develop strategies and best practices to lay the groundwork for real reform. Refreshments will be served. Parking available in library ramp with entrance on 4th Street.

The grant will be matched dollar-for-dollar by sponsors that seek to host new HOURCAR hubs. Businesses, institutions, neighborhood organizations, or even individuals can become hub sponsors. The challenge grant is an excellent opportunity for community supporters to bring HOURCAR to their neighborhood. Sponsor matches will range from approximately $12,000 to $15,000 depending upon the vehicle selected. In return for the hub sponsorship, HOURCAR commits to operating a shared vehicle at the hub for a minimum of two years. Today, HOURCAR's fleet numbers 16 fuel-efficient vehicles. The matching grant will result in the program's expansion to at least 26 hubs in Minneapolis and Saint Paul over the next two years. The expanded fleet will serve more than 1,000 Twin Cities-area drivers. All existing and new HOURCARs are available to all HOURCAR members, 24 hours a day. Goals for hub expansion include serving more members, extending the utility of the current fleet, adding service in new neighborhoods, increasing positive environmental impacts, and creating partnerships with supporting businesses, institutions, and communities. At this time, HOURCAR seeks to serve neighborhoods in the cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, although future expansion may include suburban communities.
