Items of Interest to MHNA
We compile a monthly list of events and news that generally appeals to all Marcy-Holmes neighbors, called "Items of Interest", which is emailed on the first week of the month. Submit items to the MHNA office in advance of our deadline, which is the first Thursday of the month at noon. " Items of Interest" are emailed, and posted here, in the first week of the month.
MHNA’s editorial policy for " Items of Interest" is to include community events and activities that happen in the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood and information about events that happen nearby which are of general interest to people who live or visit here. We also occasionally include information about neighborhood or nearby commercial ventures ( e,g, stores, restaurants) IF they have something unique going on or are new to our area. We want to encourage the wonderful variety of businesses here, but we can’t include listings about every sale or promotion. We try to keep the information in "Items of Interest" as thorough and correct as possible, but can’t guarantee that event details won’t have changed since we got the information. Therefore, it never hurts to check the websites before venturing out.

When Lang called, though, “that dog would…

The Minneapolis City Council on July 10 officially approved “Local historic designation: Dinkytown Commercial Historic District” with all members present and voting unanimously.
The action designates the smaller of two proposed boundaries in the city’s Dinkytown study. The smaller district highlights the streetcar era from 1899 to 1929 and the longer period would have run through 1970s.
And it leaves many issues, including height, to be resolved through future negotiation. Here are the…
