The year 2017 was eventful in Brooklyn Center. We developed and executed several projects in six strategic priority areas to include: Resident Economic Stability, Targeted Redevelopment, Enhanced Community Image, Inclusive Community Engagement, Strengthened and Empowered Youth, and Key Infrastructure Investments. As you review this newsletter you will notice a pivot from telling stories of 2017 projects to new developing projects for 2018. Although the articles and stories will cover the six strategic priority areas, here are a few notable projects completed in 2017 related to “Enhanced Community Image”: • The City took on a robust branding and community engagement process resulting in the development of a new logo and tagline. • The City routinely sits down and visits with regional and local media outlets in an effort to build stronger relationships. • The City developed new social media outlets such as Facebook for more departments. We opened Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. We created a Youtube Channel and initiated a “Notify Me” effort. Notify Me is an effort to sign up residents and businesses for electronic City blasts. • We increased newsletter distribu- tion from four issues per year to six. The year 2018 promises to be a busy year. The New Year and all of its projects will be guided by the City’s new vision. This vision was crafted and adopted in 2017 to guide all efforts of the City. As a vision statement describes an “aspirational desired future state of the community,” here are the words to the City vision statement: “We envision Brooklyn Center as a thriving, diverse community with a full range of housing, business, cultural, and recreational offerings. It is a safe and inclusive place that people of all ages love to call home, and visitors enjoy due to its convenient location and commitment to a healthy environment.” As we move ahead, the City wishes to thank you for affording staff the opportunity to serve you for another prosperous year. We look forward to many new endeavors in 2018. Curt Boganey, City Manager LET’S GET SOCIAL The City of Brooklyn Center incorporates the use of various social media outlets across several platforms to increase engagement and collaboration with residents and the general public.

Nestled behind a tree-lined drive and set along the shore of Upper Twin Lake, Crescent Cove is the result of years of fundraising and recent changes in Minnesota legislation to allow hospice care for children and young adults. Crescent Cove will provide short, respite breaks for children (0-21 years of age) with life-threatening conditions and their families, and an alternative option for providing compassionate, end-of-life care. With six bedrooms, a family suite, therapy rooms, and a recreational space, Crescent Cove provides 24-hour, on-site pediatric palliative care. Crescent Cove is the first dedicated respite and hospice home for children in the Midwest, and one of only three in the entire United States. A grand opening and open house event was held on November 16, 2017. For more information, please visit: www. crescentcove.org.

Kelly Mertes and the “Rec on the Go” program receive prestigious “Tommy Johnson Award” On January, 9, 2018 Kelly Mertes (pictured right) and the “Rec on the Go” program received the prestigious “Tommy Johnson Award” at the Minnesota Recreation and Parks Association annual awards program. This was a joint award with the City of Brooklyn Park. Last fall, the “Rec on the Go” program was selected for an “Award of Excellence” from the Minnesota Recreation & Parks Association, in the programming and events category. There were a total of twenty one “Awards of Excellence” presented in seven categories. The Tommy Johnson Award selects a single “Award of Excellence” project or initiative that best exemplifies the characteristics and values that Tommy Johnson was known for: innovation, futuristic, revolutionary and/or creative with ideas and initiatives that help establish future trends, philosophical change, and sharing of new resources and new exciting concepts. Big congratulations to Kelly and the rest of the “Rec on the Go” staff on this important recognition! 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update Now Underway Every 10 years the City of Brooklyn Center, along with other cities, counties, and townships located throughout the seven-county metropolitan region, are required to update their Comprehensive Plan, and it’s that time again! The Comprehensive Plan is an important document because it defines the City of Brooklyn Center’s vision for the future and establishes a guide for how the City will grow and change over the next 20 years. The completed Comprehensive Plan will serve as a road map to address the City’s future land use, transportation, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, parks, utilities, and public facilities. The City kicked off the public engagement process at the annual Holly Day event held on December 3rd. As it was the City’s first opportunity to hear from residents, we’ll be reaching out for more feedback over the coming months. The City will be providing updates on upcoming events and other opportunities to share your ideas about how Brooklyn Center should look in 2040 through the City’s official website: www.cityofbrooklyncenter.org/ Questions regarding the update process can be directed to City Planner/Zoning Administrator Ginny McIntosh at (763) 569-3319 or by email at: gmcintosh@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us. 6 Winter 2018, Edition 202 NEWS Ci t y “HANDS ONLY” CPR AVAILABLE IN BROOKLYN CENTER Brooklyn Center Fire and Police have come together to form Brooklyn Center “Heart Safe.” The goal of the program is to train as many people as possible in “Hands Only” CPR. It’s been found that by just providing chest compressions can increase the chance of survival by 85% if someone is having a Sudden Cardiac Arrest! Since 2015, over 2,800 people have been trained in “Hands Only” CPR. On January 9, 2017 Brooklyn Center received its Heart Safe designation. Any business, organization, or group in Brooklyn Center can receive this training at no cost. We have trained at car dealerships, churches, Cub Scouts, Girls Scouts, Little League, safety camps, and schools just to name a few. Our Most notable accomplishment was getting the Brooklyn Center Jr./Sr. High School designated first in the State as a Jr./Sr. High Public High School to become a Heart Safe Campus. This included training the student body, teachers, transportation staff and all coaches in “hands only” CPR. Again, any business, school, or organization in Brooklyn Center can receive this training at no cost. We are working toward having classes open to the public. If interested, contact Brandon Gautsch, Fire Inspector/ Fire and Life Safety Educator/Heart Safe Coordinator at 763-549-3642 or bgautsch@ci.brooklyn- center.mn.us. FIREFIGHTER RECRUITMENT The Brooklyn Center Fire Department (BCFD) will be actively recruiting for paid-on-call firefighter positions in 2018. Being a Brooklyn Center firefighter is a unique part-time job with both scheduled and unscheduled response hours that are not predictable. Our firefighters work full-time in other careers, then attend training and respond outside of their normal job hours. Over 80% of fire departments in Minnesota and the Twin Cities operate this way. This job requires commitment and motivation to progress through training and meet ongoing department requirements. Applicants must be over 18 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, and currently live within a six-minute response area to one of our two fire stations, as determined by BCFD. In addition, the applicant is subject to written testing, an interview, a criminal background check, driving record check, psychological exam, and medical exam. The applicant must pass all requirements to continue on in the process. This process takes some time, and has several steps.

Brooklyn Center Community Center Constitution Hall 6301 Shingle Creek Parkway Brooklyn Center, MN 55430 PREVENTING AUTO THEFTS With cold weather here, we need to remember a few basic tips so that we do not become victims of auto theft or theft from autos. • Lock your vehicle. • Do NOT leave valuables visible in your car. Lock them in your trunk before you reach your destination. Even small items such as loose change or sunglasses can be attractive to a thief. • Do NOT leave your vehicle running unattend- ed with the keys in the ignition to warm up. It takes only seconds for a thief drive away with your car. • Under Brooklyn Center City Ordinance 27- 122, which applies to unattended motor vehicles, it is a misdemeanor to leave a vehi- cle unattended without stopping the engine and removing the keys; you can be ticketed for this! • Vehicle remote start systems where the key is removed from the ignition are exempt from ordinance 27-122. • Know your vehicle – especially if it is a ‘push button’ or ‘proximity key’ enabled vehicle. Some vehicles can be driven without the key inside of the vehicle or in the ignition. Test your car before leaving it running unattend- ed or ask your vehicle dealer or mechanic about how your vehicle operates. • If your vehicle can be driven without the keys in the ignition or a key fob inside of the vehicle, you can be ticketed for violation of ordinance 27-122. • The best option for warming up your vehicle is utilizing a remote engine start system! If you have questions, please contact Auto Theft Officer, Mike Peterson at 763-503-3226 or mpeterson@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us. SHOP WITH A COP EVENT A SUCCESS On Thursday, December 14, 2017 the Police Department participated in the 2nd annual Shop with a Cop event hosted at Walmart. This year, Police Officers, Cadets, and Explorers assisted 25 children with their Christmas shopping lists. Walmart was a fantastic host and all involved were given dinner after the shopping. All the gifts were wrapped by staff and then given to very appreciative families. Thanks again to Walmart ($2500) and Luther Auto ($500) for donations provided for this event, as well as to all of those involved in the planning, shopping and wrapping. It was a true team effort.

The priorities for staff, infrastructure improvement and service response are reflected in the allocation of resources in the plan developed in City Council Joint Work Sessions with the Financial Commission during the months of June through November 2017. The expenditure levels are focused on maintaining current services and on the achievement of the City’s strategic priorities. The overall General Fund budget increase is 4.39% and the overall tax levy increase is 5.63%. The property tax levy increase is, in large part, a result of a new debt service levy dedicated for the repayment of a 2017 bond issue used to finance neighborhood infrastructure reconstruction improvements. 2018 WHERE DO GENERAL FUND DOLLARS COME FROM? WHERE DO GENERAL FUND DOLLARS GO? 9 www.cityofbrooklyncenter.org The 2018 Budget Highlights: • Issuance of $10.3 million of debt to finance capital improvements including the street, water, and storm sewer portions of the infrastructure improvement project for Firehouse Park Area Reconstruction and Water Tower No. 2 Reconditioning. This debt issue provides the needed funding for the continuation of our street and utilities neighborhood reconstruction program. • Establishment of a Communications and Engagement division, including funding allocated to branding and marketing efforts, website re-design, and community engagement initiatives. • Reorganization of the Business & Development and Building & Community Standards Departments into a Community Development Department. This new department will be led by a Community Development Director who will also oversee the economic development activities of the City. • The creation of a full-time business assistance specialist position that will provide the necessary assistance to current, start-up, and relocating businesses. The position will also work to identify workforce opportunities for current Brooklyn Center residents. • The addition of a recreation program supervisor to oversee Community Center operations, including aquatics and fitness programs. • Purchase of a training simulator for police officers that will allow officers to receive scenario style decision- based training. The simulator will be continually updated for new scenarios based on targeted situational training needs and current events. • The budget includes funding for 2040 Comprehensive Plan updates, including public feedback sessions that will serve as the master planning document of future land- use within the City. • Funding for the transition of the BrookLynk youth internship program from the Brooklyn Bridge Alliance to city operations (Brooklyn Center/Brooklyn Park) and continued support and involvement with the Alliance in efforts related to youth programming, statistical tracking, strategy, access, outreach, and program quality. • Planned infrastructure improvements that include: Brooklyn Boulevard Corridor (49th Avenue to Bass Lake Road), Firehouse Park Area Neighborhood Reconstruction Project, Bellvue Avenue mill and overlay, and Water Tower #2 reconditioning. • An appropriated General Fund contingency of $125,000 available for unanticipated expenditures. 10 Winter 2018, Edition 202 NEWS Ci t y City Budget The Median Value Residential Property in the City is $167,000 compared to the prior year value of $150,000, which is an increase in market value of 11.3%.

Here are guidelines to follow if you suspect that your waterline may be frozen: 1. If you have had a frozen water service in the past, you will receive a letter from the Utility Department to get on the waterline freeze prevention program in early January. Make sure you follow through with the requirements of the program. 2. If you experience no or reduced water pressure, please call the City immediately. Staff will come out and determine if you have a frozen water service. 3. If the waterline is frozen, you will receive a Frozen Water Service Line Repair Agreement and Waiver. Once this is signed, the City will make every effort to assist the homeowner with thawing of the water service. 4. Once the water service is thawed, you will need to get on the freeze prevention program immediately. If we are unsuccessful in thawing your water service, the City will provide guidance for other options. If your pipes are frozen or if you have questions, please contact the Utility Billing Division at (763) 569-3390, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After hours, contact 911 (Hennepin County Dispatch) and City Public Works staff will be notified. 2018 UTILITY RATES SECOND LOWEST 12 Winter 2018, Edition 202 NEWS Ci t y City CONTACTS Council Members Mayor Tim Willson Voicemail: (763) 569-3450 mayorwillson@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us Councilmember Marquita Butler Voicemail: (763) 569-3446 councilmemberbutler@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us Councilmember April Graves Voicemail: (763) 569-3448 councilmembergraves@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us Councilmember Kris Lawrence-Anderson Voicemail: (763) 569-3444 councilmemberlawrence-anderson@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us Councilmember Dan Ryan Voicemail: (763) 569-3445 councilmemberryan@ci.brooklyn-center.mn.us City Manager Curt Boganey (763) 569-3300 Printed on recycled paper City PHONE NUMBERS Administration ..............................................(763) 569-3300 Community Development ............................(763) 569-3330 Inspections, Code Enforcement, Ownership Services Public Works/Engineering ............................(763) 569-3340 Parks, Streets, Utilities ...............................(763) 569-7100 Finance ..........................................................
