Meeting Themes: Elections and Affordable Housing

Please mark your calendars and join us for our annual celebration of Kenny Neighborhood Association and all things great about Kenny neighborhood! We will have guest speakers about City of Minneapolis elections and services and affordable housing.

Please note that the affordable housing discussion will focus on understanding what it is, how it is defined, who develops it, how Kenny can engage on the topic, etc. We chose this topic BEFORE the recent release of the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan draft and we will NOT be covering zoning and density issues in this discussion. However, Ward 13 Councilmember Linea Palmisano is working on scheduling a separate meeting for residents to discuss the Comp Plan and issues surrounding those recommendations. The meeting is tentatively scheduled for mid-May and we will communicate more once we know a firm date.

Looking forward to seeing you on April 17!
