The Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association (DMNA) is proud to announce the launch of its newly refreshed website. After several months in development, the DMNA unveiled the new website, at www.thedmna.org, earlier this week. The new site has a more modern look and feel, improved navigation that is more intuitive, and it’s mobile and tablet friendly!
DMNA Neighborhood Coordinator Christie Hantge says, “We created a site that is comprehensive of everything downtown has to offer, but at the same time is more user friendly and easier to maintain than our previous website. We wanted to make it as simple as possible for users to get what they want from our website within a few clicks.”
The refreshed website features an interactive map that displays all of the residential (condo and rental) buildings in Downtown East and Downtown West. There is a connection to the Development Tracker website that monitors all of the development activity taking place in the downtown community, including planned, under construction, and completed projects. The site also includes links to all of the neighborhood organization’s government, business, and nonprofit partners. There is an integrated Facebook feed, as well as a gallery of the DMNA’s YouTube Channel videos. Most importantly, the website highlights many of the financial contributions the DMNA has made to programs and projects across the downtown community over the past 20 years.
Pam McCrea, DMNA Board Chair, says, “This new website honors the neighborhood organization’s past accomplishments, but also reflects our vision for the future. With the City’s transition to the new Neighborhoods 2020 Program this year, this refreshed communication tool will help us achieve our outreach and engagement goals. Not only will it allow us to better communicate with current Downtown East and Downtown West residents, but it will also serve as the front door to people not yet familiar with our great community. It will help us spread the word about how wonderful it is to live and work in Downtown Minneapolis to people beyond our neighborhood boundaries.”
The DMNA would like to encourage people to use the website to join its email list to stay up to date on the organization’s meetings, events, and activities, as well as to stay informed about what’s happening at City Hall. You can sign up under Enews & Updates, which is located at the bottom of the home page, or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The DMNA sends a weekly email, and occasionally special communication if there is something urgent to report to residents.
The Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association (DMNA) exists to promote the common good and general welfare of the residents, businesses, and employees of Downtown Minneapolis. The DMNA serves as the official liaison between residents and Minneapolis’ City Council, the Neighborhood and Communication Relations Department (NCR), the Planning Department (CPED), and other City departments as necessary.
