Southside Green Zone


Southside Green Zone boudary map

The City of Minneapolis Southside Green Zone, which includes the greater Phillips community and Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, was created by the City Council Resolution Designating Green Zones on April 28, 2017. From October 2017-September 2018 the Southside Green Zone Task Force developed an action-oriented Work Plan specific to the Southside Green Zone. The Work Plan identifies actions that promote health and economic well-being using environmentally-beneficial strategies.

Draft Southside Green Zone Work Plan (July 2018):

On November 2, 2018, City Council approved a resolution renewing the Southside Green Zone for another two years. The Southside Green Zone Council (formerly “Task Force”) will serve as an advisory board to the City Council and Mayor on the implementation and evaluation of the Southside Green Zone Work Plan. The Southside Green Zone Council will be made up of 12 residents of the Southside Green Zone and four non-voting members who may include business leaders or staff from the City or community based organizations.

The Southside Green Zone Council members will be responsible for attending meetings, holding the City of Minneapolis and related partners accountable to the timely and effective implementation of the work plan, informing and engaging community members on the status of the work, developing a fundraising plan and overseeing its success by guiding Green Zone staff and advocating for resources, and providing policy, program and resource recommendations to the Mayor and City Council.
