National Night Out (NNO) application deadline for free street closing

Info: or 311 

National Night Out (NNO) is a celebration of police-community partnerships; and this year, hopefully a discussion about the future of our neighborhood as part of WPCC's 2019 community engagement process--please see page 1.

Last year more than 1500 events were registered with the City, including 39 in Waite Park neighborhood. It is free to participate in NNO.

Block leaders signed up through Crime Prevention Specialist Abdirashid Ali (673-2874, can register an NNO event and apply to close a street/alley by visiting

Note: Not every street can be blocked off depending on the traffic flow. Generally, bus routes and high traffic streets can't be used for block events. Most blocks on bus routes or with traffic lights at one end, may have a side street that can be blocked off.

You will need permission of 75% of your neighbors to be approved for street closure--keep their names and addresses handy in the event your permit application needs to be reviewed.

If you register by Tuesday, July 23 you can block your street for free. If you register from Wednesday, July 24 through Monday, July 29, there is a $100 fee. You will not be able to block off your street if registering after Monday, July 29.

Registration also places you on the official list of NNO events that gets distributed to police and other departments. The City sends dozens of teams of officers, supervisors, and command staff to attend as many events as possible. However, there's no guarantee police will be able to attend your event.
