WPCiA was allocated $2.8 million from the city of Minneapolis for Phase I of the internationally acclaimed participatory democracy program known as Neighborhood Revitalization Program. Over the past several years, Windom Park residents and businesses have worked together with other collaborative partners on our Neighborhood Action Plan. This plan outlines how residents and business assessed neighborhood needs and how the NRP funds should be allocated. Projects ranged from home fix-up funds, business facade grants, commercial loans, homebuyer incentives, Central Avenue enhancements, park improvements, school technology projects, environmental initiatives, crime and safety projects, tree plantings, neighborhood gateways, communication, and community outreach. We are now beginning to implement Phase II, in which WPCiA’s allocation has been set at just over $561,000. Seventy percent of this allocation must by law be spent on housing-related activities. However, recent actions by the City Council are impacting this funding, and as of this date, our new allocation is approximately $371,000.
Copies of the WPCiA Neighborhood Action Plans for Phase I and Phase II are available for pick-up at the office. If you are interested in helping us implement our Phase II allocation, please contact the WPCiA office at firstname.lastname@example.org . We are currently seeking “Champions” to help implement Phase II Action Plan strategies, including those on transportation, housing, safety and parks.
