About green zones

A green zone is a group of neighborhoods with:

  • High levels of environmental pollution
  • Racial, political, and economic marginalization

We've identified two green zones in Minneapolis.

  • Northside Green Zone
  • Southside Green Zone

We're working with residents in these neighborhoods to achieve environmental justice by:

  • Addressing environmental issues
  • Energizing the economy
