Creating an account will give you access to a lot of Daily Planet features: you'll be able to upload events to our community calendar, post your profile and bio, create your own blog, upload articles, add favorite attractions to our neighborhood maps and much more. Supplying your address or a nearby intersection (which will not be publicly visible) will let us link your account to your neighborhood to make it even easier for you to connect with your neighbors. Currently we have pages for every neighborhood in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Your address will not be visible to the public, and it will locate you in a neighborhood and link news and events from your neighborhood to your member profile page. If you don't want to put your actual address here, please put in an intersection in your neighborhood (e.g. 26th and Franklin, or Grand and Victoria). That will provide the information we need to link your neighborhood to your member profile page.
