New Master Plans coming for Mississippi Gorge Regional Park, Minnehaha Regional Trail, Southwest Service Area
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is excited to launch three new park master planning projects:
Southwest Service Area Master Plan
All Minneapolis neighborhood parks south of I-394 and west of I-35W, including small triangle park properties. Does not include regional parks such as Minneapolis Chain of Lakes Regional Park (including Brownie, Cedar, Isles, Bde Maka Ska, and Harriet) nor regional trails (Kenilworth, Cedar Lake, and Minnehaha) because regional parks and trails are required by the Metropolitan Council to have separate master plans.
Apply by March 7 to advise on any or all of the projects
These three separate master plan projects will set visions and priorities for future park and trail improvements. The planning for each of these projects will be guided by separate Community Advisory Committees (CACs), which are appointed by various neighborhood organizations and elected officials.
What is a CAC?
Community Advisory Committees provide volunteer opportunities for stakeholders to share insight and resources and serve to build and sustain relationships between the community, partner agencies and the MPRB. Members of the CAC are expected to represent the views of park users and to work collaboratively with each other and the public to provide comprehensive recommendations to the Board about the project.
