Forums seek ideas from all residents on ways to improve community engagement

Minneapolis is a stronger, more unified city when everyone is represented. How should community engagement work to best make that happen? City leaders want to hear your thoughts on that.

Please join the Department of Neighborhood and Community relations, the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission and the Health, Environment, and Community Engagement Committee for a citywide forum on what an engaged community looks like for all our residents.

There are two options to get involved in this discussion:

6 – 9 p.m. Thursday, July 31
East Phillips Park Cultural and Community Center
2307 17th Ave. S.

9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Saturday, August 2
Folwell Recreation Center
1615 Dowling Ave N.

There will be facilitated conversations in small groups and time to mingle with City leaders as well as food and refreshments to enjoy from local businesses. 

To reserve a spot at a forum, to get interpretation assistance or to ask any questions about the forums, contact the forum coordinators at 612-467-9745 or
