Minneapolis Longfellow Community Forum Charter

Purpose

The purpose of this forum is to build a neighborly place to share information, discuss local issues, find solutions and build a vibrant community.

The Minneapolis Longfellow Community Forum is the place to share announcements and discuss community issues and life specific to the Longfellow neighborhoods.

While an independent forum, it is conceived as a friendly complement to our neighborhood association, the Longfellow Community Council.

Participation is geared toward residents of, or those who work within, the Longfellow Community neighborhoods of Minneapolis. These neighborhoods include Longfellow, Cooper, Howe, and Hiawatha.

Participation Rules

By taking part in this forum, you accept the full rules of the forum.

Highlighted rules:

  • The local scope of this forum is taken seriously. While those who do not live or work within the Longfellow Community may join this open public forum, posting outside the local scope is taken seriously. Those who post messages out of this forum's very local scope may be moderated or limited from posting as allowed by the full rules.
  • Please discuss city-wide and larger issues, particularly of a partisan or ideological nature beyond the local Longfellow community-level scope on the more appropriate E-Democracy.org forum (e.g. Minneapolis Issues, Minnesota Politics, US Issues).
  • No member may post more than twice per 24 hour period.
  • All posts must be signed with the participant's full real name and neighborhood.
  • No personal attacks - stick to issues. This will be strictly enforced.
