Lend a Hand to Your Neighbors as Violation Sweeps Begin

Starting this spring, the City of Minneapolis will be conducting code enforcement sweeps in the Corcoran neighborhood.  In particular, inspectors will be focusing on vacant properties or properties with repeated nuisance violations.  Common violations that inspectors will be looking for include: tall grass and weeds; inoperable vehicles; vegetation overhanging the sidewalk, alley, or street; garbage, litter and junk; brush and branches. 

Let’s work together to ensure a safe, healthy, and livable neighborhood.  Consider mowing your elderly neighbor’s lawn or informing your renter neighbors that inspectors are coming and what they’re looking for (the City only notifies property owners).  Have an intentional prairie or an eclectic outdoor collection?  Be sure to put a sign noting the intention and give the inspections department a call ahead of time to avoid confusion. 

The City has partnered with a handful of businesses offering home improvement discounts.  Stop in the CNO office for a coupon or visit www.minneapolismn.gov/regservices
