Today word comes that Wesley Walker, the Executive Director of Northway Community Trust (which pretty much holds the purse strings for NMTF and therefore their collective nuts) has given his assessment of NMTF, which is exactly as follows...
"For all intents and purposes, NMTF has ceased to be a functional organization."
One kindly assumes some kind of new NoMi marketing effort will be reborn out of the smoldering NMTF ashes, evolving from past mistakes. In the meantime, de facto North Minneapolis marketing has been left to ad hoc, volunteer efforts answerable to nobody like, oh gee, bloggers.
But that's OK, because lately even the mainstream media has been changing its dreary, tired tune about North Minneapolis. Violent crime down 40 percent! Housing bargains galore! And Lavender Magazine will declare NoMi a "gayborhood" on or about August 14.
