Kenny Neighborhood is one of 81 Minneapolis neighborhoods. Its most conspicuous boundaries are Lyndale Avenue, on the east, and Highway 62, on the south. It is a residential neighborhood comprised of 1700 homes, 96% of which are owner occupied. It is regarded by most Kenny neighbors, and Minneapolis residents, as a safe and stable neighborhood.
The Kenny Neighborhood Association (KNA) existed for many years as a loosely structured community group that organized a summer festival and published a newsletter. KNA received a big, organizational "shot in the arm" with the introduction of NRP (the Neighborhood Revitalization Program) to the neighborhood in 1994. Since this time, KNA has created by laws, filed and been excepted as a non-profit, hired staff, prioritized neighborhood concerns and is developing a Action Plan to address them, initiated a pollution prevention campaign concerning Grass Lake, and educated residents on community issues such as the proposed expansion of Highway 62.
