Get to know your neighbors! We love Morningside and are glad you’re here with us.
6:00-8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6 at Weber Park:
Potluck, Bike Parade (five prizes for kids for the best decorated bike!), and Lots More!
Add Sunday, May 19, 3:00-5:00 p.m. to your calendars for the annual Morningside Neighborhood Association Spring Event + Bike Parade! Our spring party will be held at Weber Park and the children’s bicycle parade will be on Grimes Ave, which will be blocked off to traffic for the event. The bike parade starts at 3:30 p.m. and prizes will be awarded for creatively-decorated bikes! There will be lots of categories in which children can win, so get wild and creative with those bikes — balloons, ribbons, streamers, flowers — nothing is off limits.
Edina Police will have one officer present to meet with neighborhood residents and children, and a few of our local businesses have offered to donate food, drinks, and prizes for our event. In addition to the bike parade, there will be ultimate Frisbee and other assorted games and fun for everyone. The bike parade in Morningside is an old tradition we are starting back up again in 2019. Please plan to come out and get to know your neighbors! Hope to see you there.
Morningside residents are invited to attend a meeting with their state representatives to get to know them and voice thoughts and concerns on topics. Minnesota State Senator Melisa Franzen (49) and State Representatives Heather Edelson (49A), and Steve Elkins (49B), will be at the Edina Morningside Community Church on Sunday, April 14, 1:00-2:00 p.m. You can RSVP to email@example.com or just plan to attend.
Our 2019 Morningside Winter Party at Weber Park was chilly but a lot of fun! People brought games and coloring activities for inside the warming house, and heartier souls braved the windchill and had fun skating on perfect ice. Hot cocoa, coffee, tea, cookies and other treats were shared and enjoyed by all.
2:00 P.M. Sunday, January 27
The Morningside Neighborhood Association invites you and your family to join us for a cozy afternoon ice skating and drinking hot cocoa at Weber Park for the annual Winter Party January 27 at 2:00 p.m.! There will be some treats but you’re welcome to bring some of your own to share. Weber’s warming house has a variety of sizes of skates for folks to borrow if you don’t have a pair. Join us and dozens of neighbors for a fun afternoon enjoying one of Minnesota’s favorite pastimes: being cold and then getting warm again!
The MNA sponsored the 15th Annual Morningside Winter Party on January 28. Great ice for skating and a warm shelter with cookies, coffee (Thanks Caribou!) and cocoa.
In April-May 2017, the Morningside Neighborhood Association surveyed community members on their concerns and priorities for the neighborhood.
First, thanks for taking part. We received responses…some of them very passionate…from 239 of you. This is an impressive level of participation and clearly shows how much we all care about this neighborhood.
Second, the results and your comments are now available. They can be found in the "Publications" page of this web site or by clicking here. Quick summary: the main concerns were walkability, 44th and France development, traffic (volume and speed) and new businesses (restaurants, services, etc.).
The Steering Committee will communicate these results to the City and use them to plan programs, speakers and events.
If you have any additional questions about the survey please don’t hesitate to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
