NRRC Headquarters Sustainability Coordinator [MCN]
 
 
 
The Northside Residents Redevelopment Council (NRRC) works to improve the quality of life for all residents of Minneapolis' Willard-Hay and Near North neighborhoods. We are committed to: intentional community building across culture, race, ethnicity, socio-economic, governmental, and business status; identifying, stewarding, and amplifying community assets; intelligent urban design that supports clean and healthy living; and supporting a North Minneapolis culture rooted in respect for North Minneapolis' history, culture, challenges and triumphs, dynamic collaboration, and fiercely positive attitude.

Member Duties : The VISTA member will implement a sustainability plan for the NRRC house and its environmental initiatives. This will involve researching and writing grant proposals to obtain funds for full implementation of this "healthy initiative--the NRRC House" including plans for a greenhouse, vegetable, herb, medicinal, and rain gardens, play structures, a wind turbine, and solar panels. Also, forging partnerships with corporate sponsors and recruiting champions (volunteers) to maintain NRRC headquarters and monitor the grounds regularly. To this end NRRC has already entered into a partnership with the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization to educate our staff about water use and run-off and implement a rain garden at the NRRC house.
