CANCELED — Engagement Meetings & Membership Vote on a Proposal to Form Two Neighborhood Associations

The Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association Membership vote on a proposal to form two independent neighborhood associations has been canceled.

Based on feedback received during the August engagement meetings as well as lack of board consensus on how to proceed, it has been decided that the process to hold a vote on forming two independent neighborhood associations will be suspended indefinitely. Should a future slate of board members choose to do so, the issue may be revisited.

The DMNA would like to thank all those who provided feedback as well as attended or promoted the engagement meetings.  The process provided the DMNA with valuable information and new connections within the downtown community.  The DMNA hopes this process has provided a starting point for deeper community engagement.


The September 21st Board Meeting will be held as scheduled at The Depot. Elections for new board members will be held at the Annual Meeting on October 19th. More details to follow.
