KFNA is asking neighbors to share your thoughts, ideas, and vision here: https://bit.ly/KFNAsurvey2021
What is the survey for? As we move through the Covid-19 pandemic and the city-wide (and global) reverberations of the murder of George Floyd by MPD, Kingfield Neighborhood Association (KFNA) is taking time to get insights and input from the Kingfield community about the mission, role, and programming of KFNA.
Why are we doing the survey? In the next 3 years, regular funding for KFNA will drop by 60% , due to a new Minneapolis funding program that prioritizes majority BIPOC and historically disinvested neighborhoods. In this new funding environment, the KFNA Board wants to make sure the association is prioritizing the issues and programs most important to everyone in the neighborhood.
How will you make sure responses represent the neighborhood? We aim to get 400-800 responses to this survey between May-August 2021, aiming for a representational response of 5-10% of the neighborhood. There are ~8000 residents in Kingfield, 63% renters, 35% homeowners. 78% of the neighborhood is white, 22% BIPOC.
Watch the KFNA Board Meeting for an overview by Minneapolis City Clerk Casey Carl of how the City Charter is structured and a description of the three charter amendments on the ballot this year. Followed by Q&A, then entire presentation takes about 1 hour and can be found on KFNA’s YouTube channel.
If you are still confused about the amendments and want to learn more, visit here, and register to attend (in person or virtually!) the Saturday October 16th Charter Amendment Community Forum, organized by a coalition of SW neighborhood associations acting as a unified Election Education Team. At this forum, advocacy groups will be speaking to each side of each proposed amendment. This forum will be moderated by the League of Women Voters. Questions taken in advance ONLY, and can also be submitted online at this site.
