The City of North Mankato will be observing “No Mow May,” an  initiative encouraging property owners to limit mowing grass for one month to promote habitats  for early season pollinators that emerge in the spring. The City Council approved a resolution  proclaiming No Mow May in North Mankato at their May 2nd City Council Meeting. 

Beginning Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022, and ending Tuesday, May 31st, 2022, the City will  temporarily suspend part of City ordinance (§ 90.111) that requires homeowners to maintain  grass on their property to less than 6 inches tall. Residential properties that are owner-occupied  or occupied by renters who receive landlord consent are eligible to register and participate.  Noxious weeds will still need to be eradicated. Properties must come back into compliance in  June following the end of the program. 

Residents interested in participating in the program need to register online at the City’s website  at or call City Hall at 507-625-4141.
