Adopt a drain?


Protect Lake Nokomis and Minnehaha Creek
Now is a great time to adopt a drain near you. This year's drought has stressed our trees, which could make for an early leaf drop. Storm drains flow directly to local lakes, rivers, and wetlands, forming a conduit for trash and organic pollutants. By adopting a drain, you can help keep Lake Nokomis, Lake Hiawatha, and Minnehaha Creek clean. Visit

Sustaining your home’s affordability
Minneapolis supports the City of Lakes Community Land Trust (CLCLT) with their Project: Sustained Legacy (P:SL), which focuses on assisting existing homeowners with the potential loss of housing while remaining in their home. CLCLT invests in debt restructuring for a sustainable housing payment and/or significant rehabilitation in exchange for the homeowner enrolling in a perpetually affordable housing model that will sustain a home's affordability to future purchasers.
