Kenny Neighborhood Association
Kenny Neighborhood is one of 81 Minneapolis neighborhoods. Its most conspicuous boundaries are Lyndale Avenue, on the east, and Highway 62, on the south. It is a residential neighborhood comprised of 1700 homes, 96% of which are owner occupied. It is regarded by most Kenny neighbors, and Minneapolis residents, as a safe and stable neighborhood.
The Kenny Neighborhood Association (KNA) existed for many years as a loosely structured community group that organized a summer festival and published a newsletter. KNA received a big, organizational "shot in the arm" with the introduction of NRP (the Neighborhood Revitalization Program) to the neighborhood in 1994. Since this time, KNA has created bylaws, filed and been accepted as a non-profit, hired staff, prioritized neighborhood concerns and developed plans to address them, initiated a pollution prevention campaign concernng Grass Lake, and educated residents on community issues.
KNA meets monthly on the third Tuesday of the month (except April and December) at 7:00 p.m. at the Kenny Park Building (1328 W. 58th St.) in the All Purpose Room (call the KNA office at 612-392-4477 for time or location changes).
