Road Closure on Valley View Road
Beginning Tuesday, May 19, Valley View Road between Franklin Circle and Ontario Boulevard will be closed for one week. The closure is needed to accommodate the installation of sanitary sewer and water mains for the Eden Ridge Estates single-family residential development. A detour is posted around the work. Residents with driveways within the closure area will have access to their driveways during construction. Learn more about the Eden Ridge Estates project at edenprairie.org/Development Projects.
Minnesota voters can now apply for absentee ballots for the Aug. 11 Primary Election and/or Nov. 3 General Election. Ballots are mailed 6 weeks before each election. Visit MNVotes.org to apply for an absentee ballot and more information.
Stop the Trafficking Virtual 5K
Although racing as a group is not possible this year due to COVID-19 concerns, the annual Stop the Trafficking 5K will still take place virtually. The 5K is a collaborative, community-wide event to raise awareness about human trafficking. All proceeds from the race are designated towards organizations working to help sexually exploited youth and women in our surrounding communities.
The race itself will go on through walking or running a 5K in your home or neighborhood sometime between June 13-21 and then posting your results. For more information or to sign-up, visit StopTheTraffickingRun.org.
