We, the neighborhoods surrounding the Wells Fargo site at 31st & Nicollet, want to engage community members in picturing a vibrant, integrated cultural and economic area that offer opportunities for residents to shop, learn, engage, build skills, build wealth, and build connections in community.
We are seeking: renters, seniors, youth, BIPOC, those living in affordable housing, those who used to live in affordable housing, those concerned about housing prices, those who are unhoused, those who are looking for work and training, and those who have been trained and work as planners, architects, nonprofit managers, business owners, artists, and entrepreneurs, + people who speak different languages, practice different religions, and come from different cultures and call this city their home. Essentially we need EVERYONE to share their vision and ideas for what will make Lake and Nicollet a thriving community that will empower low-income residents and help them gain and retain wealth.
Stipends valued at $150.00 are available for community members to do this work!
Yes, YOU, most likely! Anyone 18 or older who rents, owns property, or manages a business between 36th-46th Street South, and from Lyndale Avenue to 35W is eligible for a seat on the board.
If you’re passionate, committed, and energized about our neighborhood and its future, you’re encouraged to apply, though KFNA specifically seeks to foster the leadership of people in whom neighborhood organizations have historically underinvested: people who rent, and people who identify as BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color), LGBTQ+, youth, and seniors.
