Notice of a Public Hearing
City Council’s Committee on Public Health, Environment and Community Engagement meeting
Meeting starts at 1:30 p.m. Monday, May 6
Room 317, City Hall, 350 S. Fifth St.
The public can comment during a public hearing May 6 on the revised Neighborhoods 2020 framework for neighborhood programming, funding and governance structure to support the City’s 70 neighborhood organizations in 2020 and beyond. This endeavor is part of broader work across the City to ensure greater equity for Minneapolis residents.
Revisions to the Neighborhoods 2020 framework reflect more than 400 pages of public comments. Commenters agreed with the goal that organizations reflect the demographics of the communities they serve and that neighborhood organizations are an integral part of the City’s engagement structure. Revisions to the document based on the comments include removing a hard deadline date when an organization is making positive progress, maintaining a base allocation for each neighborhood organization, and including written communication as one of various forms of engagement methods.
