Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour is April 25 & 26

April 2, 2009 - The 2009 Minneapolis & St. Paul Home Tour will feature sixty homes - 39 in Minneapolis and 21 in Saint Paul. Homes on the free, self-guided tour will be open Saturday, April 25, 10 am-5 pm, and Sunday, April 26, 1-5 p.m.

In this event that inspires homeowners to improve their homes, "real homes, real people, real ideas," residents open their doors to show creative and practical ideas for kitchens, bathrooms, space additions and more. Talk directly with homeowners, and in many cases, their contractors, architects, and other trades people. More than a dozen homes feature green, energy-efficient remodeling methods and materials.

As a past tour visitor put it, "It's always both an idea generator and fun, especially seeing all price range homes and projects."

To help you plan your tour, Home Tour Guides with maps, descriptions of all the homes and special features are available at local libraries in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and suburban Hennepin and Ramsey counties. Guides will also be available at all the homes on tour days.

To decide where you want to start your tour, go to the website, MSPHomeTour.com. On the website is a link to "Home Tour Preview Show," a half-hour video sampling five of the homeowners produced by the Minneapolis Telecommunications Network (MTN). Homes highlighted on this video are located in the Longfellow, Bryn Mawr, Kenwood, Lyndale, and Macalester-Groveland neighborhoods.

The Tour will also dovetail with the launch of the LiveMSP.org website, a new initiative to celebrate city living and promote the neighborhoods of Minneapolis and Saint Paul as premier housing choices.

The Minneapolis & St. Paul Home Tour is coordinated by Minneapolis Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) with the City of Saint Paul Planning and Economic Development department, and other corporate and non-profit sponsors. For information, call 612-673-5140.
