Update on Community Safety Center progress

February 2, 2024

Office of Community Safety Commissioner Toddrick Barnette has presented an update on the South Minneapolis Community Safety Center. The goal is to open the new Community Safety Center in early 2025.

A purchase agreement has been signed for a building at 2633 Minnehaha. The City will inspect the property, perform environmental testing, etc. By April 15, the City will decide whether to move forward with the purchase based on the findings.

A Design and Implementation team first convened in November 2023. The team has been working toward making recommendations, using the Safe & Thriving Communities Report as a roadmap.
