Neighborhoods 2020 News and Updates
The Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission (NCEC) and the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department (NCR) partnered with neighborhood organizations and cultural groups across the city in hosting a series of five meetings to discuss the future role of neighborhood organizations. Through the organizing and outreach of our partners, more than 500 people attended the five community conversations. In addition, NCR held two additional meetings: one with Lao and Hmong community members at Harrison Community Center; and another with Latino and American Indian community members at Waite House. A total of 583 people signed in at the seven meetings. NCR also offered an online survey to gather additional input.
Thank you to the many partners and individuals that worked with NCR and the NCEC to make this outreach a success. Citizens For a Loring Park Community, Lind Bohanon Neighborhood Association, Logan Park Neighborhood Association, Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association, and Whittier Alliance served as fiscal agents and helped organize the meetings and helped with communication. Plymouth Church, the Northeast Armory, the Abubakar-As-Saddique Islamic Center and Whittier Park provided fantastic meeting spaces. Abubakar-As-Saddique Islamic Center, the Council on American Islamic Relations and the Native American Community Development Institute all assisted with promotion.
NCR has worked with the NCEC to prepare a Draft Summary of Findings. Please note that this is a draft, and is subject to change. You can review the Draft Summary of Findings, Raw Data, and Open Ended Comments here.
