What do you think of the SENA neighborhood? What’s missing? What needs work? What should the neighborhood association focus on? Where should it spend its time and money?
You have a chance to let people know what you think. Fill out an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3JXB7NS. There are 10 questions. It will take an estimated four to five minutes to complete.
According to SENA Neighborhood Coordinator Shirley Yeoman, “Your input is essential to SENA as we make plans for the future.”
As stated at the start of the survey: “The Standish-Ericsson Neighborhood Association (SENA) is working on a 3-year plan for Community Engagement, which is required for SENA to continue to receive funding from the Minneapolis Community Participation Program. The city of Minneapolis defines the primary purpose of community engagement as ‘the empowerment of people to influence city government decisions that shape their city and their lives.’ SENA is also evaluating our plans for the future as we look at a significant reduction in public financial support for neighborhood associations.”
Here is a sampling of the questions:
1. What do you think SENA should address in the next 5 years? Please indicate your top 3 choices.
• Parks and lakes
• Housing stock
• Business appearance, vitality and success
• Personal safety
• Real estate development
• Traffic and transportation
• Community events
• Other (please specify)
2. What neighborhood issue would you be most likely to volunteer your time to address?
3. If you had $1 million to spend on your neighborhood, how would you use it to improve the Standish and Ericsson neighborhoods?
4. If you had $1,000 to spend on your neighborhood, how would you use it to improve the Standish and Ericsson neighborhoods?
