We’re excited you want to be on the street!
Neighborhood Hubs run for the length of the event (usually about 6 hours) and are a great way to bring your neighbors together. Think about it as a mini block party inside of Open Streets! Neighbor Hubs are for individuals that live near the route - if you are a registered business, non-profit, or performer, please go to the "Get a Spot" page.
Just follow these steps:
Read this page thoroughly, then fill out your information below.
Decide your activity - know the rules! The City of Minneapolis requires permits for serving food, selling goods, fires and amplified sound. This year, Neighbor Hub Organizers should plan NOT to sell goods, have fires, serve food or have amplified sound. See "Neighbor Hub Ideas" for fun activities you can do you in your Hub!
Recruit Helpers - plan out what help you’ll need. Because this event is 6 hours long, you might want some volunteer neighbors to take turns managing the Neighbor Hub. Consider having two 3 hour long shifts, 2 people per shift. That’s 3 more neighbors to recruit total. Easy! Depending on what you’ll bring on the street, you may also want to have help setting up in the morning and taking down in the afternoon so you are off the street before it reopens to cars. Keep it simple!
- Come door to door with us! The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition is organizing a team of volunteers to reach out to businesses and flyer residents homes along the route one month before event day. Join our crew to get the word out faster! Attach your own Neighbor Hub flyer to our Open Streets flyer, and talk to neighbors that are out and about! This is optional, but a great way to do your outreach with a buddy. Learn more here.
Fill out your contact information below, which event you are interested in, and some activities you are thinking of creating so we can highlight your Neighbor Hub! Then, just answer 2 more questions (on the next screens) about people you plan to bring, your t-shirt size and we'll connect with you soon!
Note: Serving food, selling goods, and having fires are not possible for Neighbor Hub Organizers this year due to city permits.
