Task Force Report and consent items – Jennifer Naglak
Visioning Report and consent items for approval – Shirley Heyer
NRP Visioning Task Force approved a Pilot Survey for use on
National Night Out by a few blocks, to determine the effectiveness
of such a survey for Phase II Visioning, as follows: the survey
will seek answers to three questions: (1) What is going on now that
you like in the neighborhood? (2) What is going on now that you
don’t like in the neighborhood? and (3) How do you want Phase II
money used? The survey will also acknowledge that the NRP Visioning
Task Force gives a great deal of weight to the previous survey
voted on at the 2008 MPNAI Annual Meeting; however, that was two
years ago and we need to update our information; and, finally, that
there will be least three focused, inclusive, directed meetings
(English, Spanish and Somali) and one neighborhood-wide meeting to
bring the visioning together.
NRP Visioning Task Force approved presenting the NRP Phase II
Visioning recommendations at the February 2010 MPNAI Annual Meeting
and voting on them with 30 days notice – at either the March or
April 2010 regular monthly members meeting – after extensive
notice including to every block leader through Don Greeley, MPNAI’s
internal block flyering system, neighborhood newspapers and email.

Task Force/NRP Visioning next meeting will be announced at the
meeting for the Southern Bike Connection: Thursday,
August 19, 6:30 pm: Stewart Rec Center (2700 12th Ave S). The
Southern Bike Connection is looking for community feedback about
possibly using E. 25th St. instead of E. 24th St. as the connector
between 17th Ave. S. and bike routes downtown and over
pedestrian/bike bridge at I-35 and anything else you want to add
input to – particularly to keep the route on 17th instead of
Bloomington Ave. S. and just what kind of bike routes 17th and E.
25th/E. 24th would be – separate bike lanes, shared lanes with
cars, removal of parking spaces or not etc.
