Community News: Residents invited to help plan the future of Minneapolis Parks
Monday, September 21, 2015 6:10 AM


On Monday, Sept. 21, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will hold the next series of city-wide meetings to share information and gather feedback on what may be the most comprehensive planning effort in its 130 year history.


Minneapolis residents are encouraged to get involved and help the MPRB with three distinct, yet deeply intertwined projects: Closing the Gap: Investing in our Neighborhood Parks, RecQuest, and Service Area Master Plans. RecQuest and Service Area Master Plans focus on what Minneapolis residents want in parks over the next 25 to 30 years. Closing the Gap is about funding these needs.


The final “wrap-up” meetings will continue throughout September. The nearest meeting is Monday, Sep. 28, 6:30-8:30 pm, Keewaydin Recreation Center, 3030 E 53rd St. But there are other meetings available.


Learn more about Closing the Gap by watching a short video and share their opinions by taking a 15-minute survey at through September 30. Or attend a public forum to learn how other cities facing similar challenges funded their neighborhood parks.


Details about each project are available here
