At this week’s City Council meeting, the Council will consider postponing the August NNO event to October (if feasible at that time) and change Council Worksession dates in August and October to accommodate this change.

This year, 2020, all summer events which would draw large groups to one location have been canceled in order to minimize public health exposure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Therefore, staff is recommending postponing the August NNO event to the first Tuesday in October, October 6. This would be the same day as NNO is observed in other parts of the U.S. and could allow greater participation since an October date wouldn’t conflict with summer vacation plans and could allow UMD student residents to participate.

A final decision about holding the event in October will be based on public health guidelines due to COVID-19.
