Neighborhoods 2020 Committee
Background: In January-February 2015, the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission (NCEC) identified the community engagement process to facilitate a citywide dialogue on redefining the roles and expectations of neighborhood organizations that are funded by the Community Participation Program, aimed at making neighborhood organizations more inclusive and effective, as one of its strategic planning priorities for action during 2015. The term Neighborhoods 2.0 was considered and subsequently the Neighborhoods 2020 term was identified for the process. This is also a strategic direction within the Blueprint for Equitable Engagement.
Purpose: The NCEC Neighborhoods 2020 Committee will partner with Neighborhood and Community Relations Department staff, neighborhood organizations, City Council offices as appropriate, and other key stakeholders to conduct engagement, to develop and compile recommendations to the NCEC on actions to envision the next phase of Minneapolis’ neighborhood programming that reflects changes in the city’s population diversity and demographics, as well as changing opportunities and challenges in the 21st Century.
The Neighborhoods 2020 Committee typically meets the THIRD Monday of the month on first floor of Crown Roller Mill. 105 5th Avenue South. Minneapolis, MN. Meeting time is 6:00PM to 7:30PM.
