Summer goes by too fast in the city. While its officially beginning is in late June, the season seems to really kick off with the July 4th holiday. Afterward, summer quickly moves forward with a flurry of July activity occurring throughout the city—capped off by the 10-day Minneapolis Aquatennial celebration.

August 15 will mark the end of STEP-UP Achieve’s 10th year of providing paid summer internships to disadvantaged Minneapolis youth aged 14-21. Through STEP-UP’s internships, young people are given the opportunity to gain work-force experience while earning money and receiving training in important life skill areas, such as resume building and interview coaching. This program, run by the nonprofit AchieveMpls and the city of Minneapolis, has placed teenagers and young adults in nearly 18,000 internships across over 230 employers city-wide throughout its 10-year run. North Minneapolis teens comprise a significant portion of this number; in 2012, for example, 50 percent of all STEP-UP participants were from the Northside.

On July 14, at the request of the Webber Camden Neighborhood Organization (WCNO), the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board (MPRB) held a public meeting at Webber Park to discuss the delayed opening of the new naturally filtered pool that was to have opened at Webber Park this August. A robust construction start in the fall of 2013 could not make up for the delayed 2013 groundbreaking caused in part by the need for legislative approval for the innovative project. A seven foot frost line, coupled with record rainfall, made spring and early summer progress on the project difficult, if not impossible.
