Welcome to Ward 10
Our ward includes the vibrant and diverse neighborhoods of East Harriet, East Calhoun, Lowry Hill East, CARAG and Whittier. Ward 10 neighborhoods are an eclectic mix of renters, who make up 70% of the Ward's population, and homeowners.
People are drawn to the area's mix of housing choices and our high quality of life. Ward 10 is home to beautiful lakes and trails, well-loved neighborhood parks, thriving local businesses, a vibrant arts scene, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. In addition to new apartment developments, a growing number of office spaces, including the CoCo co-working space, are adding job destinations to Ward 10.
Council Member Lisa Bender was elected to serve Ward 10 on November 5, 2013. Her first term priorities are:
- Reopen Nicollet Avenue at Lake Street
- Implement the Nicollet-Central Streetcar line
- Build a network of protected bikeways, starting with the adoption of a network plan
- Citywide composting with curbside organics pickup
