2019 In Review: $10 Million Safety & Livability Proposal

Updated: Jul 13

As part of our Resource-Centered Platform, PPNA created a proposal this year, in partnership with the South Minneapolis Public Safety Coalition (SMPSC), to bring more safety resources into our community. You can read more about that proposal at ppna.org/SMPSC.

Here are some of the major milestones we hit this year:

- Jan 1, 2019: PPNA begins implementing our Resource-Centered Platform in an effort to bring more resources into our community

- April 9, 2019: In collaboration with SMPSC, a public meeting with community members is held to prioritize the tools, levers, strategies, and programs we should work to allocate resources toward

- May 21, 2019: Over 30 community members gather at City Hall to meet with council members and talk about our collective safety & livability goals, concerns, and priorities

- July 10: Drafting begins for a $10 Million Safety & Livability Proposal informed by our community meetings and conversations with stakeholders

- August 14, 2019: The $10 Million Safety & Livability Proposal is adopted at the SMPSC meeting

- August-November, 2019: SMPSC members and PPNA staff meet with elected leaders, City & County staff, and community stakeholders to introduce them to the proposal and identify ways to advance the work

- November-December, 2019: PPNA staff give public comment at more than 7 City and County budget hearings to advocate for more dollars and resources in Health & Human Services and other holistic safety programs
