Spotlight On Maplewood
The Bruentrup Farm has a new Gazebo constructed with funds donated from the family of the late George Rossbach. George Rossbach was a former Mayor of the City of Maplewood and he passed away last year. George was one of the first to use cable television to communicate to our citizens and to the wider Northeast metro area. He did the show "Maplewood in Motion" and the Bruentrup Farm was featured on that show a number of times. Maplewood’s Bruentrup Farm is recognized as one of the best preserved family farms in the nation.
National Night Out is an annual event that promotes our police and fire departments community relationships and neighborhood involvement. Trust between neighbors and law enforcement is vital to building a sense of community. National Night Out is a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together in a positive and fun event. Neighborhoods across Maplewood host block parties and community events with visits from Maplewood Police and Fire staff. This year’s National Night Out is on the evening of Tuesday, August 4th. Let's take a look at some footage from a few years ago.
Maplewood has a rich and inclusive civic environment. Good government begins with citizen involvement. We have a primary election for city council coming up. Maplewood’s Director of Citizen Services' Karen Haag tells about the primary election.
Maplewood has a thriving business community which includes everything from corporate headquarters of an international corporation to big box stores to locally owned mom and pop shops. We visit a new thrift shop that has a charitable mission.
