Northside Greenway- Funded Engagement Opportunities

Temporary North Minneapolis Greenway Demonstration

This summer, you will be able to experience a temporary "pop-up" demonstration of what the Greenway concept could look like in North Minneapolis.  

For more information on the Northside Greenway, check out our blog or go to the City website.

With the demonstration being installed this summer, there is a unique and exciting opportunity to engage the community around the pop up greenway, and what their reactions are to the concept.  There are information sessions, grants for individuals wanting to do engagement, and grants for organizations.  Please read further for more information!

Applications for Greenway Demonstration Neighborhood Connectors (for Individuals)

We are accepting applications for Greenway Demonstration Neighborhood Connectors to do engagement around the upcoming demonstration project planned for spring of 2016. Neighborhood Connectors are individuals who live and/or have significant connections to North Minneapolis. They will work to connect with their neighbors and residents living on or close to the demonstration route (3000 - 3500 Irving Ave N) or living on or close to the full greenway route (mostly Irving and Humboldt avenues) to help people experience the greenway and how it can be used. Connectors will be gathering feedback about residents’ experience using the demonstration greenway and how a potential permanent greenway should be designed, programmed, and maintained.

Individuals will be selected on a monthly, rolling basis to receive an estimated reimbursement of $100 - $250 to conduct engagement activities. Individuals may apply for up to $500 if their engagement activities will consist of two or more community events.
