Block parties and other neighborhood celebrations are a great way to meet new neighbors, build neighborhood relationships and establish stronger connections. Public Safety would enjoy visiting your block party, neighborhood celebration or the like!
At this time, only police officers and squads might be able to attend these celebrations. Due to staffing capacity, our EMS Fire team are unable to visit block parties, neighborhood celebration or similar gatherings.
Public Safety encourages neighbors encourages residents to plan block parties, potlucks, ice cream socials, barbecues, bike parades and children's games on Minnesota Night to Unite. Held annually on the first Tuesday in August, the event provides an opportunity to meet new neighbors and establish stronger connections with Public Safety.
Night to Unite 2024 will take place Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2024. We will begin accepting requests for Night to Unite visits in early July 2024.
Public Safety personnel enjoy stopping by community gatherings to engage, connect or present on certain topics. These events are great ways for neighbors to get to know each other and help build a strong community! You can request a Public Safety visit for events such as:
• Neighborhood block parties
• Association meetings
• Scout or similar group meetings
• Senior living centers
• Childcare centers
We kindly ask for at least two weeks’ notice if you would like our team to stop by. Requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and staff will confirm availability at least five days before your event. Use the form below to request a visit (Note that this form should not be used to request a Night to Unite Visit).
It's important to remember that some roadways in Woodbury cannot be blocked off in anyway to impede the flow of traffic. To search if your location allows this, access the Block Party Location Search tool:
Enter the house number closest to the location of your block party in the search field of the tool and select the correct address from the drop-down options that will appear.
If the map shows the roadway is green, you are allowed to place temporary barriers during your party (see the note that follows).
If the roadway is red in color, blocking off the roadway is prohibited.
Note: If your street allows for it and you choose to cordon off any portion, barriers must be placed as such to allow for emergency vehicles and residents needing access to the area.
