Board of Directors

Welcome to


Since 1964, our mission is to organize people, knowledge and capital for the collective empowerment of the Jordan Neighborhood.

The Jordan Area Community Council (JACC) is a nonprofit, citizen participation organization for the Jordan neighborhood. Its mission is to “organize people, knowledge and capital for the collective empowerment of Jordan residents.”

It is one of the city’s first community organizations, JACC began in 1964 when local PTA members came together to prevent closure of the North Branch public library. That struggle, which resulted in a new North Library opening in 1970, firmly established JACC as a grass roots organization based upon the belief that residents could solve problems through collective action.

It gets its name from a neighborhood junior high school, which was built in 1922 and named after Minneapolis Public Schools Superintendent Emeritus Charles Morison Jordan.

The Jordan neighborhood is a community representing the widest breadth of lifestyles and demographics in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area. Bordered on the north by Lowry Avenue and on the east by Emerson Avenue, it has a unique border on the south and west by West Broadway Avenue. Jordan is mainly a residential neighborhood.
