Support Midtown Phillips

 

 

 

 

 

Your support of the Midtown Phillips neighborhood allows us to increase our capacity for community outreach and partner with local non-profits to create informative forums, sponsor resources, and contribute to projects that promote the stability and well-being of residents throughout the course of the year. As neighborhood organizations are experiencing decreased levels of city funding, we are seeking donations to help bridge that gap as we go into 2022 to sustain our ability to partner with neighborhood organizations within Midtown Phillips.

Metro Transit is developing a Zero-Emission Bus (ZEB) Transition Plan

Under state statute, the Metropolitan Council is responsible for developing a Zero-Emission Bus and electric vehicle transition plan and revise the plan once every five years (Minn. Stat. 473.3927).

The initial plan is due to the Legislature by Feb. 15, 2022. 

The Plan will identify short- (2022-2025), medium- (2026-2030), and long- (beyond 2030) term opportunities, risks, and implementation strategies to transition Metro Transit's bus fleet to zero-emission technology. 

The plan is guided by three principles: 

  • Technical Viability 

  • Equity and Environmental Justice 

  • Financial Impact 

Metro Transit plans to engage interested stakeholders and communities in the coming months.

A strategy to learn about our various neighborhood cultures and build relationships with residents. Neighborhood and city-wide programs and projects set up booths to inform and recruit involvement from the neighborhood.  We create a ‘Midtown Phillips Zone’ as a part of Open Streets.

PHILLIPS CLEAN SWEEP

This is an annual event in partnership with Minneapolis Solid Waste and Recycling and composting to clean up the community. Midtown Phillips partners with three other neighborhoods in order to clean up the Phillips area and instill a sense of community accountability and pride. In 2018, over 750 volunteers came out to help pick up trash and meet neighbors. Local businesses supported this event through donations of food and supplies. City, county and neighborhood non-profits set up project displays during lunch to provide an educational component to this event. We also raise funds to provide 6 garbage trucks in the 4 Phillips neighborhoods to pick up tires, furniture, appliances, electronics, household construction, old carpet Free of Charge to all residents!
