Community Engagement Task Force
On December 7, 2007, the City Council voted unanimously to adopt the Core Principles of Community Engagement . The set of seven principles is one element of the Community Engagement Task Force’s work through the summer and fall of 2007. The Task Force presented its final recommendations to the City Council in November and became a part of the work in track 3 that considers the focus, funding and governance of the NRP after 2009. The recommendations will also continue to inform the City’s ongoing work to bring the community engagement system into its next generation by finding clear ways to support what is currently working and exploring new ideas to enhance what’s being done.
The recommendations synthesized the conclusions from ten Task Force meetings, community input (pdf), and the group’s consideration of the public’s comments on a draft report. Nearly half of the recommendations were created or modified based on community’s input.
The formal adoption of the core principles reflects the shared beliefs of the Mayor and City Council on how the City should engage the community and how the community can participate in the City’s decision-making process. The principles will serve as a guide for all future Minneapolis community engagement efforts.
