Candidate filings for the Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) Policy Board are open and will continue until noon, Sept. 23.

The board governs the 25-year, $200 million program and reviews and approves all neighborhood action plans. Four of its 19 members are neighborhood residents elected to one-year terms.

Eligible candidates must be 21 years old when the new term of office begins in January, and they must be residents of the neighborhood for a minimum of 30 days before the Nov. 21 election.

A neighborhood resident will be elected to represent each of the three neighborhood categories (protection, revitalization and redirection). An at-large resident and an alternate also will be elected.

Candidacy forms are available online at www.nrp.org, or may be picked up at neighborhood organization offices; public libraries; the NRP office, 105 5th Ave. S.; or at the City Clerk's office, Room 304 in City Hall.

Policy Board meetings typically are held on the third Monday of each month, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Hennepin County Government Center, 300 S. 6th St.
