The purpose of the West Bank Safety Committee is to increase safety and livability in the Cedar Riverside Neighborhood.
When? 1st Tuesday each month at 7 pm in the Cedar Riverside/West Bank Safety Center (1601 S 4th St).
The CRNRP Safety Committee provides an open forum for community members to connect with each other, neighborhood groups (CRNRP, West Bank Business Association, and West Bank Community Coalition), local businesses, the Minneapolis Police Department and other police and security staff from local institutions in order to review neighborhood crime statistics, share safety concerns, and discuss strategies to address those concerns.
Committee members attend monthly meetings, regularly participate in neighborhood safety walks and other initiatives, and cultivate relationships with community members and law enforcement personnel that build trust and encourage ownership and broad participation by all in safety activities. When circumstances seem necessary, the committee as a collective can take initiative to address appropriate groups in the city, neighborhood, or law enforcement on issues of concern to the community.
Safety Committee Chair: Russom Solomon, co-owner of The Red Sea.
