Logan Park Neighborhood Association and Holland High-Rise at 1717 Washington Street Northeast

A Logan Park Neighborhood activist has taken the lead to set up a computer lab and provide Internet access in the Holland High-Rise community room as part of a digital inclusion program.  The idea sprung out of a community meeting at the Northeast Library regarding the Minneapolis Community Technology Survey. 

The partnership includes the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, Logan Park Neighborhood Association, Volunteers of America and an IT student from the Takoda Institute. The City's IT department is involved by discussing the concept with the team, connecting with Takoda Institute, MN Computers for Schools, and USIW. 

Funding from Logan Park Neighborhood Association will provide 6 laptops and related equipment.  The Internet will be provided using a free Wireless Minneapolis Community Benefits account from USIW. 

The program will include computer training for High-Rise residents and the broader Logan Park community, and also will encourage community engagement by using the High-Rise community room space for neighborhood activities. Read more in the TC Daily Planet.

Community Sign-Along: The Grand Opening Celebration of the computer lab was held on June 26th. 

Congratulations to the Residents and the Team!

See photo album from the event.

Next steps: Training will be scheduled and residents and Logan Park residents can make use of the equipment.  For more information contact; Logan Park Neighborhood Association at 612-516-5762.
