The Elliot Prark Organization and Neighborhood

Elliot Park is one of the oldest neighborhood communities in Minneapolis. It began in the 1850’s as one of the settlements that emerged around the Falls of St. Anthony on the Mississippi River. Its proximity to the industries that were built up around the Falls made it popular for Swedish immigrants who were drawn to this area. Sections of Elliot Park along 8th Street were platted for the building of houses, stores, and churches as early as 1856, only four years after the founding of Minneapolis.

               Meet our new Community Organizer – Jordan Munro  

This March, Jordan Munro joined the EPNI team as our Community Organizer.  Jordan has shown his passion for community building through his track record of living, working, and volunteering around the world.  He has worked as an English Teacher, a Field Manager, and briefly as a Program Associate.  He has done volunteer work on issues of education, sustainability, and free and fair elections.

Jordan holds an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, and a Masters in NGO Studies from Ajou University in Suwon, South Korea.  Jordan lives in Uptown, Minneapolis in an intentional community with 6 other socially minded individuals, an absurd Corgi-Shepherd mix, and a regal Pomeranian.  Jordan enjoys hiking, bouldering and rock climbing, and board games.  Feel free to contact Jordan to talk about the Elliot Park neighborhood and life for those that call Elliot Park their home.

Through the years Elliot Park Neighborhood has persisted despite social and economic changes, fluctuating fortunes and suburban emigration. It is a strongly built community that has maintained a stock of historic buildings along with a stock of determined people. It has survived, even when it has not thrived, and it boasts a proud heritage that is bursting with potential and promise. Residents and employees, representing a diverse mix of cultures and economies, live and work in harmony in this urban village nestled next to downtown Minneapolis.
