Convened by the Northside Neighborhoods Council
March 24 will be the first of several gatherings of northside residents, leaders and agencies who share a common goal of revitalizing and developing north Minneapolis neighborhoods into a vibrant, sustainable, healthy and unified community. The objective will be to work together to implement a common vision through intentional community planning with robust resident participation.
Interested and committed residents, neighborhood organization boards of directors, non-profit agencies that are presently working in north Minneapolis, city department representation, other municipal government representatives, philanthropic partners and other institutional and cultural group representatives.
Group Discussions on three broad topics:
1. Housing and Transportation
2. Economic Development
3. Arts and Recreation
What are we all working toward? What plans and studies have already been done? What resources are available? What are we willing to commit to?
Regular reconvening of work groups, and ongoing events leading to a common vision for a successful North Minneapolis plan.

Purpose of NNC: To ensure the diverse racial, cultural and economic communities of North Minneapolis have full inclusion in visioning, planning and building an equitable North Minneapolis.

Definition of equitable development (Refined from PolicyLink definition):
Equitable development creates healthy, vibrant, communities of opportunity where all residents including people of lower income and people of color participate in and benefit from decisions that shape their neighborhood and region.
