Neighborhoods 2020 Revised Framework

Via a May 2 e-announcement from the City of Minneapolis:

Good morning, neighborhood and community leaders.

The City of Minneapolis Neighborhood & Community Relations Department is pleased to announce that the revised Neighborhoods 2020 Framework Recommendations document is now available to view.

The completion of the revised framework is an important step forward in the Neighborhoods 2020 process, and incorporates feedback that the City received during its 63-day public comment period. To make the revisions, NCR worked with a public comment review committee, which made recommendations for revisions to the framework and provided valuable feedback based on the public comments.

The next step is for the Council’s Public Health, Environment, Civil Rights, and Engagement Committee (PECE) to vote on the document before it is put before the full City Council.

The PECE Committee meeting is set for May 6 at 1:30 p.m. in Council Chambers on the 3rd floor of Minneapolis City Hall. There will also be a public hearing, so if you have comments on the revised Neighborhoods 2020 Framework Recommendations document you can attend the public hearing and share them directly to the PECE Committee. If you are unable to attend the public hearing or prefer to submit your comments in writing, you can submit comments to the City Council at

I would also like to share the 2018 Neighborhood Programs Annual Report with you. Each year, NCR compiles a report summarizing the neighborhood organizations' activities and highlighting their great work, contributions from volunteers and collective outcomes. You can find NCR's annual neighborhood programs reports at

Again, NCR thanks the countless volunteers, neighborhoods and commenters who worked on Neighborhoods 2020 for their time and dedication. Minneapolis is a better place because of your contribution.
