Celebrate Night to Unite on Aug. 1

Rosemount will celebrate our strong neighborhoods and the community working together on the evening of Tuesday, August 1, as we take part in Night to Unite. 


On Night to Unite, residents of Rosemount and across Minnesota are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Many neighborhoods throughout the City will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, visits from Police, Fire, and local officials, contests, and youth activities.  


The connections that are made and strengthened through Night to Unite carry far beyond one evening. Close-knit neighborhoods are safer because neighbors look out for each other and know when something suspicious is occurring. It’s the perfect way to get to know your neighbors and build a safer community. Last year 33 parties were held in Rosemount and we hope this year there will be even more.


Police, Fire, and other City representatives will visit registered block parties between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. They will also collect personal hygiene products to assist Dakota County families in need. Items are needed such as toilet paper, shampoo, soap, tooth brushes, toothpaste, and deodorant.


Night to Unite is sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA of MN/Iowa, and local law enforcement.
