Neighborhood & Community Engagement Commission (NCEC)
Representatives of Minneapolis neighborhood and cultural communities sit on the NCEC and advise the Mayor and City Council on a wide range of community engagement issues. The NCEC is responsible for developing guidelines for the City’s principal neighborhood funding program, the Community Participation Program. The Commission also works to broaden participation on advisory boards and commissions, develops recommendations for improving the City’s public participation process, and reviews the business plan for the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department.
Eight of the 16 NCEC commissioners are appointed through the open appointments process with the remaining members elected by Minneapolis neighborhood organizations.
