The City of Minneapolis recognizes that effectively engaging the people of our city in government issues and decision-making helps build a better city and create vibrant, safe, welcoming and livable neighborhoods. In 2002, the Mayor and City Council adopted a set of citywide goals and expectations (updated in 2014) that articulate the City’s commitment to community engagement (see Reports related to Community Engagement 2002 – 2006).

In 2006, following a thorough study of best practices, Minneapolis has begun to formalize its community engagement activities. A three-track work plan that addresses the multiple facets of the City’s community engagement system was approved by the City Council in May 2007.

The City of Minneapolis is well on its way to bring the City’s community engagement system into its next generation, including finding clear ways to support what is currently working and explore new ideas to enhance what’s being done.
