The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) and the City of Minneapolis will host a public meeting to jointly engage the community in efforts to update the master plan for the upper river in Minneapolis. The meeting is scheduled for June 26 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the board room of the MPRB Administrative Offices building, 2117 W River Rd.
The plan, Above the Falls: A Master Plan for the Upper River in Minneapolis was first approved in 2000. The plan calls for continuous park frontage along both sides of the river, new residential neighborhoods, and job growth along with a reduced industrial footprint. Since the planís adoption, significant implementation steps have been achieved, including park and trail expansion, renovation of the Grain Belt complex, and establishment of the Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership.
The plan update will include recommendations for land-use policy, park development, phasing, implementation strategies and environmental stewardship within the Above the Falls plan area. The plan area extends along the riverfront from Plymouth Ave north to the Camden Bridge.
All are invited to attend to learn more, to meet the Above the Falls Citizen Advisory Committee and the Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership, and to discuss the plan update in its early stages.
