Boards and Commissions

The City benefits from the volunteer efforts of hundreds of residents who serve on more than fifty advisory boards and commissions. These boards and commissions represent a key component of community engagement activities in regard to City actions and decision making. Residents should have good information about service opportunities and be well-oriented once selected to serve.

NCR is working to improve the effectiveness of these boards and commissions and to streamline the open appointment process. In addition, NCR either staffs directly or works very closely with three advisory boards and committees 


NCR Staffed Boards and Commissions:

Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities (MACOPD): The MACOPD is a citizen based education and advocacy group formed to expand opportunities for all children and adults with disabilities throughout Minneapolis, without regard to disability or other protected class status

Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission (NCEC): The NCEC  works with the Neighborhood and Community Relations department to provide overall direction on the City’s community engagement efforts. Through the input and work of the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission, residents, community and neighborhood organizations will play a key role in enhancing and shaping how the City engages its residents.

NRP Policy Board: The key work of the Policy Board is to review and approve the NRP plans and to also to review the Community Participation Plan submissions from neighborhood organizations.

Minneapolis Advisory Committee on Aging:The Committee is responsible for bringing senior citizen concerns to the attention of the Mayor and City Council.
