Dear Neighborhood and Community Leaders,

The revised draft of the Blueprint for Equitable Engagement is now available for another round of public review. The review period will begin today, Friday, October 16 and last until Monday, November 30.  During the review and comment period held during summer the of 2015 we receive much input and feedback from neighborhood and community members, so much so, that it led to major revisions of the Blueprint for Equitable Engagement document. Because of this, we wanted to hold another review period for any additional feedback.

The Blueprint for Equitable Engagement is a 5 year plan to ensure an innovative and equitable engagement system for the City of Minneapolis. The plan will be used as a roadmap to better achieve the department’s mission, “Engaging Communities for a Better Minneapolis”, between

2015 and 2020. Inclusive and equitable participation will be critical to achieve the One Minneapolis goal.

During the review period we have scheduled three opportunities for the public to attend open houses to learn more about the Blueprint for Equitable Engagement and provide comments:

Saturday, October 24th 10:00am – 12:00p.m. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park (4055 Nicollet Ave S, Minneapolis, 55409)

Monday, October 26th 5:00 – 7:00p.m. Farview Park (621 N. 29th Ave, Minneapolis, 55411)

Thursday, November 5th (NCR’s Department Open House) 4:00 – 6:30p.m. Crown Roller Mill Building (105 5th Avenue South, Minneapolis, 55401)

Please provide your comments in writing no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, November 30th to:

Neighborhood and Community Relations Departments Crown Roller Mill Suite 425 105 Fifth Ave S Minneapolis, MN 5540

You may also provide your comments in writing to ncr@minneapolismn.gov.

All comments received will be reviewed by NCR staff, and will be used to develop final recommendations to the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission and the Minneapolis City Council. If you have any questions about the draft Blueprint, please contact me at (612) 673-3129 or David.Rubedor@minneapolismn.gov.
