About DMNA

The Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association, Inc. (DMNA) is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit corporation governed by a volunteer board of directors. It is recognized by the City of Minneapolis as the official neighborhood organization for Downtown East and Downtown West neighborhoods (click to see map). Anyone who lives, works or owns property in Downtown East or West is eligible to volunteer, support, and become a voting member of DMNA.

DMNA is involved in a variety of projects including Arts & Culture, Crime & Safety, Land Use / Development, and Transportation. Funding for many of DMNA’s projects come from the Neighborhood Revitalization Project (NRP) and the City’s Neighborhood and Community Relations Department Community Participation Program.


The Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association (DMNA) exists to promote the common good and general welfare of the residents, businesses, and employees of Downtown Minneapolis. Activities include neighborhood meetings, support of neighborhood improvement projects, reviewing commercial and residential development proposals, and reviewing and commenting on neighborhood matters to be discussed at higher governmental levels.
