Community Snapshot Survey

NENA will be gathering input from Nokomis East residents to create a community snapshot. The community snapshot is a chance for residents to identify the future needs, opportunities, and assets in our neighborhood. The community snapshot will inform the strategic planning, including new programs or committees.

  • What are the assets in our neighborhood?
  • What new programs or services would you like to see?
  • What can we do to make our neighborhood even better?

Volunteers needed! Build your community by volunteering!

We are looking for outreach volunteers to dedicate 2-5 hours a month at events in the neighborhood. If you are a resident of the Keewaydin, Minnehaha, Wenonah, or Morris Park neighborhoods, and you’d like to meet your neighbors and gather their input, then this is a great opportunity for you!

To find out how you can become an outreach volunteer, contact Tyra Payer at tyra.payer@nokomiseast.org or at (612)-724-5652, or submit your information below.
