Implementation Efforts

The Implementation Task Force has developed a comprehensive workplan based on recommendations from the first phase of Homegrown Minneapolis. The workplan identifies short-, mid-, and long-term priorities and assigns specific recommendations to City Departments which will be responsible for moving them forward.

Workgroups

To assist the Task Force, workgroups have been established to focus on implementation efforts related to individual recommendations or groups of related recommendations. Formal and informal workgroups will be added over the life of the Task Force as need and capacity arises. To learn more about a particular workgroup, please contact the appropriate convener.
