The BNC’s Mission

The Beltrami Neighborhood Council exists to create an inclusive community and to champion s​ocial, economic, and  civic engagement in a safe environment while promoting equity and diversity for all our neighbors. We strive to do this by providing resources, sharing information, connecting neighbors, and promoting activities, while supporting and partnering with other entities that share similar values.

The BNC’s History

The Beltrami Neighborhood Council (BNC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, established in 1990.  The BNC is governed by an elected 9-member Board of Directors.  The majority of the BNC’s funding comes from the Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP, Phase I and II) and the Community Participation Program.  With this funding, the Council has invested in housing improvements, Beltrami Park programs, events, crime & safety, and local initiatives.  For a full history of the BNC’s accomplishments, click here.

The Neighborhood

Beltrami neighborhood is in the Northeast community of Minneapolis. It is bound on the north by Broadway Street NE, on the east by Interstate 35W, on the south by Hennepin Avenue East and on the west by Central Avenue NE and Harrison Street NE. Beltrami Park is at the heart of the neighborhood and features a playground, bocci courts, soccer and softball fields, tennis courts, a sand volleyball court and a basketball court. The Beltrami neighborhood and park are named after Giacomo Constantino Beltrami, an early 19th century Italian jurist, scholar and explorer. As with other neighborhoods in northeast Minneapolis, many artists have set up studios in Beltrami. Large tracts of industrial land cover the southwestern part of the neighborhood, while the remaining land is dedicated to single-family dwellings and duplexes interspersed with low-rise multifamily buildings.
