New goals adopted by WPCiA
(June 30, 2022) Windom Park Citizens in Action (WPCiA) is excited to announce the selection of four new priority Goals for the organization to further improve Windom Park neighborhood and NE Minneapolis in the future.
As part of the continued evolution of WPCiA, these new Goals will be used to guide our decisions, actions, and financial investments. The selection of these four Goals were finalized by the Board of Directors, but were based on community feedback and input collected in-person at the Pillsbury School PTO Carnival and online through a community survey conducted in May-June 2022.
The Board of Directors discussed and adopted the following goals at the June 2022 Board Meeting:
- Eliminate Disparities
- Healthy, Safe & Connected People
- Complete Neighborhoods
- Clean Environment
These goals are part of the broader Minneapolis 2040 comprehensive plan. Each goal has defined Policies that detail the ways that each Goal can be accomplished. Starting in July 2022, WPCiA will begin the process of identifying opportunities to improve Windom Park neighborhood and finding ways to achieve these Goals.
In 2040, Minneapolis will see all communities fully thrive regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, country of origin, religion, or zip code having eliminated deep-rooted disparities in wealth, opportunity, housing, safety, and health. Learn more.
