The 36th Annual National Night Out was held on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. In St. Paul alone over 37 thousand people attend events in their neighborhoods. It’s a chance for people to meet their neighbor and, in some cases, chat with local law enforcement personnel. Communities provide food and promote the special event to bring people out of their homes and apartments to socialize. A similar program in Minnesota is promoted in each county and is known as Night to Unite. There is great comfort in knowing who lives next door and our society feels more secure when folks band together with a cause – like safe neighborhoods. The addition of food ties it all together as a social gathering.
Many of our At Home Apartments communities took advantage of this national event to celebrate their residents and mingle with staff. Waterford Townhomes in Eagan invited local police to stop by for a visit. The Jade Lane Estates leasing and maintenance team served burgers on the grill. And BBQs were a big hit with lawn games at Oxford Apartments in St. Paul.
We’re happy to have a variety of rental communities in the Twin Cities metro and proud to see our leasing and management offices invest the time and energy it takes to sponsor National Night Out events in their neighborhoods. (Pictured above: the Jade Lane Estates maintenance team.)

Winter in Minnesota is a beautiful time of year. The beauty sometimes outweighs the challenges, but – driving can quickly become hazardous. And parking in Minneapolis and St. Paul used to be a hassle… not so much any more.
With cold weather and snow just around the corner we are gearing up for parking limitations and plowing alerts. It’s hard to believe we haven’t had a major snow accumulation yet this winter. Bring it on! We are ready for it whenever it arrives. Our property managers have plans in place for quick shoveling as needed and plowing begins after two or more inches are on the ground. We’ve communicated our procedures to each metro and suburban resident and we’re prepared to call our plowing providers when needed.
At each of our communities we place handy containers of sidewalk rock salt and invite residents to spread it on walkways (in case we don’t get to it in a timely manner). We want to avoid slips and falls during this icy season.
Our St. Paul and Minneapolis properties have plans in place to communicate when to move cars for plowing. The city of Minneapolis features their snow emergency information online and offers an app to make it easy to park safely. You can also see updates for St. Paul and download their winter snow parking app on their website.
A bonus for our residents is a one-stop-shop… Twitter! We use #ahaplows to alert all of our residents of plowing that is scheduled and offer recommendations for where to park. We don’t want to tow or ticket their vehicles. So, with the beautiful snowy season of winter upon us we are excited to gear-up for whatever comes our way.
