Visit the Yard Waste page for additional details to your yard waste collection service. Please note that it is a violation of City ordinances to rake leaves into the street. Leaves raked into the street will create significant public safety, flooding, and pollution problems. The proper disposal method is to bag all your leaves, including from the boulevard, and put them out with your solid waste collection. The schedule for yard waste pick-up can be obtained from Solid Waste at (612) 673-2917.full story...
The LHNA board will meet on Tuesday, November 12th at 7:00 p.m. at the Kenwood Rec Center. Our date was moved due to elections on November 5th. All Lowry Hill residents are welcome to attend. We are currently working on a neighborhood priority plan. Please email us your ideas about how LHNA may improve our neighborhood to email@example.com
We are encouraging all in our community to
LEAVE THE FRONT LIGHT ON all night.
If you have a back porch/yard lights, we encourage you to
leave those on as well. Light is a BIG deterrent to criminals.
It will not cost you more than a few dollars increase in
your monthly electric bill.
