The BNC’s Mission

The Beltrami Neighborhood Council inspires and strengthens relationships within the community by empowering our residents to discover their gifts through education and activities. (2015)

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.
