Programs & Projects
MHNA is involved in many programs:
A collaboration between four neighborhoods adjacent to the Minneapolis campus of the University of MN, The City of Minneapolis, Augsburg College, the U of MN and area business groups that works to make sure the area surrounding the University of Minnesota campus
- capitalizes on its exceptional resources;
- is vibrant, safe, healthy, and sustainable;
- is a preferred place for people of all ages to live, work, learn, do business, and visit.
A collaboration between neighborhood and business groups that are impacted by the TCF Bank Stadium, this group works to ensure that game day operations and special events at the stadium protect the beauty, serenity, and security of our communities. The SAAG also manages the The University of Minnesota Good Neighbor Fund.
Restorative justice works to reduce repeat offenders, reduce crime overall and strengthen and build community. Through the community conferencing process, community members get to know their neighbors and join in performing community service : neighborhood block patrol, clean-up event, etc. Each offender meets face-to-face with community members, admits responsibility and learns first-hand how their actions have affected others. Community members have a direct role in the justice process—a chance to tell the offender exactly how they feel and to have input in the deciding outcomes.
The Marcy Arts Partnership provides arts-integrated programs and residencies for all children, regardless of race, religion, developmental level or socio-economic status, at Marcy Open School. This group is guided by the belief that the core curriculum, coupled with the arts, enhances and deepens learning experiences. The Marcy Arts Partnersihip (MAP) is a wonderful and unique aspect of Marcy Open School that helps differentiate it from other schools. Proceeds from the annual Marcy Arts Gala provide Marcy students with rich art residencies and art-infused learning. For more information contact Laura Cayere-King, Marcy Arts Partnership Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Master Plan was adopted by the City in 2003:
In Summer 2002, The Marcy-Holmes neighborhood hired Dahlgren, Shardlow and Uban Inc., a private planning consulting firm, to facilitate planning discussions and draft a master plan for the area. The planning process began in September 2002 with general community meetings that allowed the participants to declare what they liked or disliked about the neighborhood, what they wanted to preserve, what they wanted to achieve, and what they wanted to avoid. The cumulative results of this input formed the objectives for the plan. The Marcy-Holmes plan document supports the policies of The Minneapolis Plan, the city's comprehensive plan and provides detailed policy guidance for planning and development issues at the neighborhood level.
Several Master Plan Supplements were also adopted in 2007:
Our Small Area Plan for 15th Ave SE was adopted in 2009:
