Community Of Opportunity: A Demographic Analysis Of Low To Moderate Income South Minneapolis.

Snowden, Renan.

The Community of Opportunity report was initiatied by Hope Community in order to identify the challenges and opportunities facing low-to-moderate income communities in South Minneapolis.

In addition to providing information about the 14 neighborhoods that make up the “study area” in this report, historical and comparative data are presented whereever possible. In particular, the “study area” is compared with data for the city of Minneapolis as a whole and the seven-county metropolitan region.

In concert with Hope Community’s mission as a community developer, this report focuses on the quality, availability, and costs of the existing housing stock in the study area, the city, and the region.

The report also focuses on the demographics and opportunities available to residents of the study area. The report includes historical and comparative data regarding race, ethnicity, immigrant status, income, education, employment, and transportation options for residents of the study area.
