|Title:||Minneapolis Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) Collection|
|Repository:||James K. Hosmer Special Collections Library|
The concept of the NRP was to provide an opportunity for residents and other neighborhood stakeholders to identify and address concerns in partnership with government and others by developing a neighborhood action plan. Discovering new partnerships and renewing old ones was to help lead to creative solutions. Partnerships included residents working with city, county, parks, library and school staffs to tap new resources in the neighborhood. In 1990 the Minnesota Legislature and the City Council established the NRP and dedicated $20 million a year for 20 years to fund it. On February 15, 1991, the first six neighborhoods were selected to begin their Neighborhood Action Plan. The NRP's annual revenue of $20 million was to come from the Minneapolis Community Development Agency's (MCDA) Common Project. NRP funds were to function as "start-up" money for the revitalization of Minneapolis neighborhoods.
The intend of the program was to emphasize: human resources and other assets that could be used to implement the Action Plans; increased intra- and intergovernmental collaboration to prevent duplication of efforts and to streamline the delivery of public services; redirection of jurisdictional budgets (the city, the county, the public schools, parks and libraries) to address strategies in Neighborhood Action Plans; and using NRP funds to leverage other community resources to fill funding gaps remain.
NRP Phase II Goals as adopted by the NRP Policy Board on Nov. 15, 1999 were to: create a greater sense of community so people who live, work, learn, and play in Minneapolis; have an increased sense of commitment to and confidence in their neighborhood and City; sustain and enhance neighborhood capability in order to strengthen the civic involvement of all members of the community; ensure that neighborhood-based planning remains the foundation of the program, is informed, and leads to creative and innovative approaches: strengthen the partnerships among neighborhoods and jurisdictions to identify and accomplish shared citywide goals; ensure that government agencies learn from and respond to neighborhood plans so that public services ultimately reflect neighborhood priorities; develop and support life cycle housing citywide through the preservation of existing housing and new construction by reaffirming our commitment to the state mandate that 52.5% of NRP funds be spent on housing.
