About the Neighborhoods Initiative

Through the Neighborhoods Initiative, the City will support residents in their neighborhoods. We're not looking for residents to form new formal neighborhood boards or associations. Instead, we’re looking to work more closely with existing neighborhood contacts (like homeowners associations and crime watch captains) and build the leadership of new neighborhood contacts.

History

From January – June 2014 the City of Brooklyn Park’s Neighborhoods Task Force oversaw a public input process where the residents identified 31 current neighborhoods. In June 2014 the City Council accepted their report and directed staff to implement the neighborhoods initiative using the neighborhood framework. 

To learn more about how the neighborhoods were identified, read the Neighborhood Task Force’s report.

Goals

Formalized neighborhoods will enhance Brooklyn Park long term and benefit the community through the initiative’s goals:

  • Pride: increase community pride and sense of ownership
  • Stability: strengthen communities and stability of residents
  • Engagement: Increase connectivity, participation and community engagement of residents on local and citywide levels
  • Livability: Improve neighborhood livability and sense of safety
  • Communication: Improve sustainable communication between the city and neighborhoods and among residents within a neighborhood.
  • Collaboration: Increase collaboration between city departments and residents on key issues
