East Isles Residents Association

East Isles Residents Association (EIRA) is a neighborhood-based organization whose primary goal is to improve neighborhood livability, develop a greater sense of community, and promote the well-being of all of its residents. EIRA encourages resident involvement in order to understand and take action on issues that impact the neighborhood. EIRA develops initiatives that address a wide range of topics that residents believe to be important. Our focus is on increasing neighborhood involvement, preserving the vitality of the neighborhood, and making improvements that make East Isles one of the City of Minneapolis’s most vibrant communities.

East Isles Neighborhood

East Isles is a vibrant urban, historic neighborhood that enjoys the best of the commercial city, and the peaceful escape of tree-lined streets and parks. Over 50 shops and restaurants line the southern and eastern borders in the Uptown area, while the serene Lake of the Isles is the border to the west.

The neighborhood’s name reflects the small islands in the lake and it is one of the most popular recreational destinations in the Twin Cities.
