NMTF Town Hall Meeting this Saturday!

The Northside Marketing Task force invites you to a Town Hall meeting on Saturday, June 23rd from 10 AM – Noon at the PCYC School, 2210 Oliver Avenue North.

This is a kick-off event for their new campaign to build a community identity for North Minneapolis.

They are inviting you and other community leaders to have your say in this exciting effort and learn how you can be part of a broad-based community input process over the next month.

Other areas in the Twin Cities have created new identities for themselves, such as UpTown, Midtown and “Eat Street.” The community identity process for North Minneapolis stands out from others because it starts with its own residents’ perceptions, not an idea cooked up by a few people in a back room.

They believe that you and other community leaders will be key players in this effort. For more information, contact Jim Wentzell, Northside Marketing Task Force chair, at 651-329-6883 (cell).

Green Team Meeting: This Thursday!

As a reminder:
The first meeting of the Green Team will be this Thursday, June 21st at 6:30 PM at Farview Park.

We are looking for anyone in the neighborhood who’s interested in being part of the Hawthorne Eco-Project to develop specific ideas for environmentally-friendly projects.

For more information, contact Georgianna at or call HACC at(612) 529-6033
