Free Sand For Sidewalks

Keeping our sidewalks free of ice and snow is the neighborly thing to do, and it’s the law. For your own benefit and to help your neighbors, people pushing strollers or using wheelchairs, and the many people in Minneapolis who walk, please do your part. The City of Minneapolis offers free sand for sidewalks at several pick up sites. The East 27th Street location is the closest to Powderhorn (E. 27th Street, just east of Longfellow Avenue near the Public Works gate). Read more about this service here.

Keeping Your Heat On

MN Cold Weather Rule: Minnesota's Cold Weather Rule helps homeowners and renters protect and reconnect heat during the winter months beginning October 15th. See MN Public Utilities Commission Cold Weather Rule or the Cold Weather Rule brochure for more information. The Community Action Partnership offers an Energy Assistance program that helps qualifying households pay for energy costs (like a heat bill). Learn more and apply here.
