EIRA NRP Upcoming Meeting Dates
Location: Grace Church
The EIRA Board will consider a modification to its NRP Plan at the EIRA Board Meeting on October 10, 2017.
The NRP Committee and EIRA Board have already approved allocating funds to help support a refresh project to the warming house on East Isles. In order to accommodate support for such a project, a Plan Modification to EIRA Phase 2 NRP strategy (7.4.1, Public Space Improvements) is necessary. This NRP strategy aligns with the goals of supporting public space improvements and improving parks and green spaces in the community. The plan modification is necessary to move dollars into this account to fund activities to refresh the warming house. Specifically, the proposed plan modification would shift $25,000 of funds:
From – 2.1.1. Affordable Housing Loan Program
To – 7.4.1. Public Space Improvements
The Affordable Housing Loan Program has generated over $125,000 in program income from loan repayments, so we believe some these funds can be invested in another project with a public benefit – the Warming House refresh.
Community members interested in learning more are invited to attend the October 10 EIRA meeting or the September 25 NRP Committee Meeting. Both will take place at 7pm, Grace Church Community Room.
CHAIR: Mike Erlandson
COORDINATOR: Diana Schleisman
The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) Committee monitors strategies and funding as implementation progresses relative to NRP priorities and plans identified in the Phase II Action Plan of 2011, and makes revisions, subject to constraints (e.g., contract with the City of Minneapolis and other requirements), and engages in follow-up evaluation efforts.
