Step To It Challenge
Don't miss the chance to represent Shorewood in the county competition of the Step To It Challenge! This is an all-age competion and the entire family will have fun seeing who gets the most steps in for the month of May. Free t-shirts, pedometers, and bags are at city hall for those who register. Participants qualify for free Twins tickets and the chance to help our city be the winner of the most steps.
This year participants are encouraged to “Take Green Strides” that save energy and natural resources too! Taking green strides not only saves natural resources, it helps you increase your physical activity. Walk or bike to your destination, pick up litter in your local park, or help plant a community garden. These activities can help you achieve your goals or maybe win the “Most Active Resident” award from your community. Here are a few “green activities” to help increase your step count.
For more information or to register by phone, contact the city at 952.960.7900.
County Road Construction Map
The county has launched a new interactive road construction map, illustrating active projects on county roads. This map will keep you informed of projects within the county. View the map at www.hennepin.us/residents#transportation.
Street Sweeping Begins
Public Works crews have started street sweeping. Please make sure that once your street is cleaned you do not sweep or blow any debris into the roadway. It is illegal to put grass clippings and debris in the roadway. The resulting debris ends up in our lakes and wetlands when the rains take it into the storm sewer system causing drainage and lake condition issues.
Reporting Pot Holes and Road Weight Restrictions
To preserve the condition of the public streets within the city from serious damage and destruction during vulnerable weather conditions, street weight restrictions are enforced according to MnDOT guidelines. View Map. For exact dates (based upon weather) please see the MnDOT website, or call the city at 952.960.7913.
Report Community Public Works Issues
|The City is testing an online form to report area issues such as mowing and park concerns, potholes and other street issues, drainage problems, and other public works concerns. Please use our new online system to report these and related issues. You are also encouraged to submit feedback on the online report system|

Reporting Pot Holes
City water mains are flushed semi-annually in the spring and the fall. Flushing is done to remove mineral deposits that have accumulated in the water pipes. Households may experience rusty water, discoloration or other problems during flushing. City crews take precautions to limit problems. However, if you do experience rusty water, running the cold-water tap will clean out your system. Call the Utility Division at 952.960.7900 if you have a problem related to flushing that does not clear up within 48 hours. Flushing is currently taking place on the west side of Shorewood heading east.
