What we do

Neighborhood organizations help residents plan and advocate for the future of their neighborhood.


Each neighborhood organization:

  • Serves one or more neighborhoods.
  • Is an independent nonprofit.
  • Has a volunteer board of directors, elected by neighborhood residents.
  • Holds regular open meetings.

If you live in a Minneapolis neighborhood, you have a local neighborhood organization that represents you.
