NRP Phase II Action Plan
Our neighborhood is a community unlike any other and has its own set of strengths and challenges. We are fortunate to have relatively little crime on our streets, a beautiful lake, and acres of gardens as our community's backyard. Indeed, these characteristics along with our housing stock, Lyndale Farmstead Park, a strong school presence, and a vibrant business community make our neighborhood a model of what is good.
But we're not there yet. We face challenges as well. We need to bring more neighbors into the EHFNA fold to improve those parts of our neighborhood that can be better. We have work to do in the areas of transportation, environment, and park programming. And, of course, all those things we know are good about our neighborhood can always be improved upon.
This document represents the long-term commitment and participation of neighborhood residents of the East Harriet neighborhood in the NRP process and is evidence that the EHFNA NRP Phase II committee operated with the basic precept our neighborhood is a sound and livable place.
This Action Plan takes eight strands and weaves them together into a plan that will guide our neighborhood and make our community stronger. The strands are:
safety & crime
traffic & noise
The plan takes each of the eight strands and defines a vision, goals, and ways to achieve those goals. The ultimate goal of this plan, however, is to help maintain and create a vital, creative, engaged, and dynamic neighborhood.
EHFNA received $218, 236 in the second phase of NRP programming (2005 - 2010). Our Phase II plan documents our priorities and allocates money for each program or strategy.
