Patty & Lisa - do you know who empties the trash cans on Chicago?
I do not, will check on this tomorrow when I'm at Buri and Chicago
There was a volunteer group that came in to clean up the memorial garden area last week
Sounds like it's City of Mpls - anyone want to follow up with CM Goodman & Osman's office to ask about more frequent pick-ups?
I can follow up with that.
I got several volunteers - thanks! The more that call and request it, the better. We may also want to start reporting full garbage cans to 311.
I suspect those might be the adopt-a-trashcan program. I know DID takes care of those in other areas but they don't stretch that far
Our office can work on a list of resources to call other than MPD. Anyone want to assist?
The needle box in Franklin Steele has been there for last two weeks

Thanks, Jim! Wasn't sure when it had been put in
That sounds great!
Brian-I’ll check my notes to see if I still have the contact for Metro Transit
Graffiti? Can we centralize a report of all throughout the neighborhood and get reported to the city to have addressed? Or identify the affected property owner to have addressed?
Jim, to your point, Assemblies of God recently was tagged/graffiti'd on brick building along Portland. Their building manager was attempting clean up himself but having a difficult time.
Yes, I believe graffiti and trash are related
has anyone asked the question “what is the root cause” to these issues? trash, needles, etc.? to me it’s all about changing “human behavior” and I believe the best way to do this is provide consequences to the behavior...both good and bad behaviors. So how do we educate to the community a program that could be implemented AND enforced to change the behavior? Can there be incentives to encourage good behavior as well as being certain there will be negative consequence for bad behavior?
I'd like to see a living document that highlights safe, effective, humane practices for addressing root causes (e.g. conflict), problem behaviors (e.g. trespass, drug dealing, vandalism, violence) and symptoms (e.g. graffiti, litter, used needles)
This would empower me as a citizen and neighbor
I have to jump to another meeting. It's been great to listen in and I'll try to be at the next one as well. Take care everyone!
