Seward Neighborhood Group

Established in 1960, the Seward Neighborhood Group (SNG) is recognized by the City of Minneapolis as the official community engagement organization for the Seward neighborhood, which is bounded by I-94 on the north, the Midtown Greenway on the south, the Mississippi river on the east, and Hiawatha Avenue on the west. 

About SNG

SNG is an aspirational organization.  We are committed to making our neighborhood more vital, equitable, livable, and sustainable – by building relationships, by engaging all community members, by promoting equitable and accessible development of the built environment, and by acting as stewards of our natural environment.  

SNG organizes community events, projects, and programs; connects residents to important resources; and advocates for policies that improve the lives of Seward residents. Our work is rooted in social justice, community connectedness, environmental consciousness, and the diversity of cultures and worldviews that makes us who we are.
