What started as an event focused on crime prevention has evolved into a popular night for community bonding. Plymouth participates in the statewide Night to Unite campaign – held the first Tuesday in August.
This year's Night to Unite is set for Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2020.
The City of Plymouth encourages neighborhoods to hold block parties during Night to Unite. They provide a chance for neighbors to turn on their lights, lock their doors, come outside and get to know each other.
Gatherings can be elaborate or simple and include ideas such as music, games, potlucks, pizza parties, dessert buffets and cookouts.
Night to Unite is promoted nationally by neighborhood watch groups as a way to help prevent neighborhood crime. It’s a good way to get to know the neighbors – including those who wear a uniform and serve the public.
Register a Neighborhood Block Party
Plymouth police officers, firefighters and City Council members will stop by registered block parties to visit with neighbors. To register a block party or add yourself to the Night to Unite mailing list, visit plymouthmn.gov/ntu. Block party registration begins in April each year. Deadline to register is July 27.
The test notification is set for 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6.
Alert Plymouth is a tool the City of Plymouth uses to call, text and/or email residents in an emergency. To sign up or for more information, visit plymouthmn.gov/alertplymouth.
