Neighborhood Development

Committee Goal/Purpose:

The Neighborhood Development Committee (NDC) addresses issues related to housing, zoning and economic development within Greater Longfellow. The committee creates and advocates for various housing programs for all citizens within the neighborhood to ensure the stabilization of our housing stock, and to promote the realization of home ownership.

NDC works to advance and guide economic development and redevelopment in the greater Longfellow community. Residents participate on the committee, as well as on specific task forces, to monitor and influence development projects. The committee is also responsible for providing resident input on zoning applications, specifically for commercial and multi-family housing developments.

The committee is made up of neighborhood volunteers. Please consider joining us! It’s a great way to get involved in your neighborhood.

Meeting Day and Time:

NDC meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:00pm. For meeting location, please check the Longfellow Calendar or contact the LCC office at or 612-722-4529.
