Nokomis East Neighborhood Association

New leadership and strategic plan


Help NENA plan for the future
Our organization is collecting feedback from our community on how to right-size our organization and updated priorities. Please participate in NENA’s online survey by Feb. 3 to add your voice to our 2022-2024 Strategic Plan at
NRP Plan Modification Scheduled in April 2022. As part of the NENA Annual Meeting in April, the board will present our 2022-2024 Strategic Plan, including a multi-year strategy for funding housing, commercial, streetscape, environmental, diversity, livability, and community engagement projects initiated by the neighborhood.
To implement the next strategy plan, NENA’s Board is also recommending a NRP Plan Modification to reposition city funding allocated to Nokomis East. The board will share details with our community about the updated community priorities and funding strategies and ask for support from the community at the annual meeting.
All residents, businesses, and property owners in the four Nokomis East neighborhoods are strongly encouraged to participate on April 28, 2022, to help NENA plan for the future. In addition to the NRP Plan Modification, the board will present proposed amendments to NENA’s bylaws. Both proposals require a vote and approval from the General Membership.
More details about the NRP Plan Modification and amendments to the bylaws will be available in March on our website.
