About Us

The Field Regina Northrop Neighborhood Group (FRNNG) is the recognized neighborhood organization for three neighborhoods in south Minneapolis—Field, Regina and Northrop. These three neighborhoods encompass the area bounded by Second Avenue South and Cedar Avenue, East 42nd Street and Minnehaha Creek (map). Each of these neighborhoods was named for a local school—Field and Northrop public elementary schools, which are still in operation, and Regina, a parochial school which now houses PICA Head Start and La Creche Early Childhood Center.

FRNNG welcomes the participation of neighborhood residents, businesses, and property owners.

FRNNG Mission Statement

To strengthen our community, foster good personal relations among the people of our neighborhood and promote an informed citizen. We will function as a non-sectarian community action group to create a common space where diverse residents and stakeholders can come together to  improve the economic, educational, cultural and residential life of our entire neighborhood.

FRNNG Vision Statement

We see the Field, Regina and Northrop Neighborhoods as a continued vital, stable part of the city of Minneapolis where people of diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds live in harmony and mutual support: a community with internal and external communication systems that enable its residents to work together to preserve positive features of our neighborhood and the city.
We see a community that shares a faith in our neighborhood and believes that by working together we can effect change.
We see a community with safe streets, quality schools, stable and well-maintained housing, parks and recreational facilities, and supportive commercial businesses that can be enjoyed by all segments of the community.
