Map and directions
The City of Minneapolis is moving towards passing an Open Data policy that, over time, will change the way the public can access and utilize public data. This new policy will impact community-based organizations and their constituents, city staff, neighborhoods, social enterprises, and others by creating new ways to ask and answer questions and develop better solutions. What does this mean for equitable housing goals? How can data support just rental housing policy and practices, and when can relying on data to make decisions and advocate with renters fall short? Hear from both City and community leaders about their work with data and data-driven decision-making in Minneapolis neighborhoods.
