Park Board seeks comment on Parade Parkway reconstruction plans
 
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will seek public comment on a refined reconstruction plan and schedule for Parade Parkway and adjacent parking lots at an open house March 13. The open house will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Kenwood Community Center, 2101 W Franklin Ave.

Parade Parkway is a short segment of street from Dunwoody Boulevard to Kenwood Parkway. Both the parkway and adjacent parking lots that serve the Parade Ice Garden are in need of reconstruction. The project is included in the MPRB 2011 Capital budget.

A public open house to review plan options for the project was held August 22. While there were varying comments received, the community consensus was to shift the street roughly 60 feet to the east allowing parking for the Ice Garden to be consolidated and made safer. Based on that input, the Park Board added parking lot reconstruction funding in its 2012 budget to allow the consensus option to be built. It is this option that will be presented at the March 13 open house for further comment.
