Welcome to the Near Northside Complete Communities page. We asked you to identify the essential elements needed to make your community complete. From public safety, affordable housing, education, mobility, and green space, Near Northside residents spoke out, and we’re listening.

Welcome!

Over 250 stakeholders and partners attended two large public meetings, and provided input and guidance for the creation of the Near Northside Complete Communities Action Plan. Many thanks to everyone who participated in the process. A special thanks goes to community leaders and partners who helped guide the community engagement process and ensure that the plan reflects a community consensus.

You can access the Action Plan in English or Spanish.

This page will serve as a basis for continued community engagement through surveys, polls, and forums to implement projects that completes Near Northside's vision. Please fill out a quick form to let us know what community topics interest you.
