Approved Neighborhoods 2020
Program Guidelines

The Minneapolis City Council approved the Neighborhoods 2020 Program Guidelines on Nov. 13, 2020. The guidelines are centered on building equity in our community. The City has worked closely with neighborhoods, community members and the University of Minnesota’s Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) to develop these guidelines.

The guidelines align with the City’s adopted Strategic Racial Equity Plan and the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan, which states that “Minneapolis will have an equitable civic participation system that enfranchises everyone, recognizes the core and vital service neighborhood organizations provide to the City of Minneapolis, and builds people’s long-term capacity to organize and improve their lives and neighborhoods.”

Timeline

The official public comment period was extended multiple times to September 30, 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak and civil unrest.

  • Feb. 28 - Sept. 30: Public comment period
  • Nov. 5: Public Health and Safety Committee public hearing and presentation
  • Nov. 12: Budget Committee presentation to discuss the program allocations
  • Nov. 13: Full City Council vote

CURA racial equity research and activities

In September 2019, the City of Minneapolis contracted with the University of Minnesota’s Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) for the final phase of Neighborhoods 2020.

Public comments about draft guidelines

During the public comment period on the Neighborhoods 2020 draft program guidelines, the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department (NCR) received 354 public comments. NCR accepted comments by email, mail, phone call, text message and virtual meeting.

Public comment was from January 28 to March 31, 2019. At these 40 community public comment meetings, NCR reached over 1,000 residents.
