Windom Park Citizens in Action!
Windom Park Citizens in Action (WPCiA) is the city-designated neighborhood organization and community engagement group for the area of northeast Minneapolis bounded by Central Avenue, 18th Avenue NE, Lowry Avenue NE and the city’s eastern border.
WPCiA’s key work over the past year has included the Small Area Transportation Plan, a draft of which will be unveiled at the Oct. 17 neighborhood meeting. You may know WPCiA from its orange “Keep Northeast Safe – 30 mph – Please Slow Down” yard signs. Next year you may know the group from its graffiti-fighting art wraps on neighborhood utility boxes.
WPCiA also puts its mark on the neighborhood via monthly open-to-all neighborhood meetings, where residents and business representatives – in addition to board members – directly vote on matters facing the community. WPCiA works to develop a sense of community and to provide mechanisms for neighbors to be well informed on topics affecting the area. Enhancing and maintaining the physical, social, economic, cultural and recreational environment, as well as promoting community safety and commercial and housing quality, are key goals.

And keep in touch by signing up for the neighborhood’s e-blast mailings by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, WPCiA, for your ongoing support!
