Neighborhoods 2020 Update

EPNI joined many other neighborhood voices at the City Council PECE Committee to ask for a delay to Neighborhoods 2020.

Listen to EPNI Executive Director, Vanessa Haight's two minute speech on why we asked for the opportunity to be innovative and develop a framework that truly supports our neighborhoods in being more inclusive, vibrant, and effective.

A big thank you to all who joined us and supported us and to the Northside Neighborhoods Council for leading this conversation. Stay tuned for details on next steps!

Star Tribune has an article about the PECE Committee meeting here.
