What Work Groups Do

The Neighborhoods 2020 work groups will play a vital role in shaping the future of neighborhood programming and funding, governance and engagement policies. The work groups will take a city-wide, holistic approach, while producing recommendations for the Minneapolis City Council. These recommendations will help the City to create a robust community engagement framework that is reflective of the city's population diversity and demographics.

Neighborhoods 2020 work teams' recommendations for the Minneapolis City Council will envision the next phase of Minneapolis’ neighborhood programming, which should reflect changes in the city’s population diversity and demographics. The work teams should also look at advisory board structure and city-wide engagement policy.

From July to September, groups will develop policy, and from September through November, they will solicit public comment on their drafts. The work team includes the following three work groups:

  1. Program Guidelines, Funding and Implementation (16 voting members)
  2. Governance Advisory Structure for Neighborhood and Community Engagement (17 voting members)
  3. Citywide Community Engagement Policy (16 voting members)

Meeting times will be set according to the availability of work team members. The time commitment is estimated as 6 hours per month.
