Neighborhoods 2020 is a community process to identify the next generation of neighborhood programming, funding and governance structure to support the City’s 70 neighborhood organizations starting in 2020 and beyond. Three work groups have been established to cover the major function areas of this work: programming and funding; governance; and citywide engagement policy. The work groups consist of representatives from neighborhood organizations, cultural groups, those with equity/undoing racism experience and representatives appointed by City Council and the mayor. The goal is to have policy recommendations to the City Council by January 2019.
