Hey there, artists/photographers/Northeast dwellers and enthusiasts (and anybody else)!
You can begin submitting your 2017 NE Calendar images starting on July 13th! So get out your cameras or other materials and start thinking about submitting some great images of unique and beautiful Northeast Minneapolis! Also, please tell your friends. 🙂
We hope to make this calendar the best one yet! More information/updates on the 2017 calendar coming soon.
Happy June, everyone! We hope you’re enjoying the summery weather. 🙂
In case you haven’t heard already, we’re sad to report that we will NOT be doing the Northeast Ride this year. But, there is good news! In the ride’s place, we’re having a different, fun event: INDEED WE CAN! The event will be held on July 13th at Indeed Brewing Company. More info about the event will be posted here VERY SOON. Mark your calendars now because it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Apologies for how long it’s been since our websites were updated. We’ve had some staff and board member changes over the summer so we’ve had to do some shifting of duties. Anyway! This Fall is proving to be a busy one, with our 2016 Northeast Calendar contest being a main focus.
Speaking of the 2016 Northeast Calendar: We’d like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who submitted artwork! We really appreciate your participation and enthusiasm. Last Thursday night the submissions were voted on by the public and now we’re in the process of finishing up the calendar design in order to get it printed soon. Please stay tuned to our websites and Facebook pages–web versions of the winning submissions will be posted ASAP along with information about how and where to pick up calendars once they’re available.
Thank you again to all of the artists who submitted work for the calendar and to everyone who supports our lovely Northeast Minneapolis neighborhoods and the NE CDC!

Make sure you SAVE THE DATE for the 4th ANNUAL NE RIDE! The ride will be held on June 13, 2015.
Please watch this site, the NE Ride site, and our social media pages for updates about the ride. We hope to see many new as well as familiar faces this year!
On January 10 and February 7, the NECDC and MNSure collaborated on healthcare sign-up events for open enrollment in Minnesota’s healthcare exchange. At least two dozen people were either signed up, or later contacted for healthcare. We at the NECDC along MNSure were greatly pleased with the results. Actions like this are why Minnesota is one of the most insured states in the nation. Way to go to all those involved! Here a few pictures of the event.
The NE Ride is in this week’s City Pages. Check it out!

2013 NE Ride map by Kevin Cannon
We’re happy to announce that local cartoonist Kevin Cannon is designing the ride map again this year for the third year in a row! One of the perks of participating in the NE Ride is getting to take home one of these delightful maps for yourself. We’re very excited and grateful to have one of Northeast’s own talented artists working with us on the ride. Thank you, Kevin. Can’t wait to see the new finished map!
