Minneapolis Park Board and Yinghua Academy co-host Northeast Park Community Meeting
 
Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Yinghua Academy are co-hosting a community meeting on Thursday, November 8 from 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the Northeast Park Recreation Center, 1615 Pierce St. NE. Yinghua will provide an overview of its upcoming facility expansion, along with visual renderings. The MPRB will provide an overview of how it will engage the community in upcoming Northeast Park master planning. The timelines for each organization will be discussed.

Yinghua is preparing to begin construction on a $6 million renovation and expansion project in the summer of 2013. The investment will update its current building systems, accommodate its current and future enrollment, and enhance program offerings.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board’s capital improvement program includes $4 million for building and site improvements at Northeast Park. Park staff will share information about upcoming community engagement for a Northeast Park master plan and near-term plans to address the community’s programming needs.

Yinghua Academy is located at 1616 Buchanan Street NE and is adjacent to Northeast Park. The MPRB’s current recreation building is located on school property. To plan for the expansion of Yinghua, the MPRB has allocated funding it its capital program for several years. Since spring, Yinghua and MPRB representatives have been working collaboratively to determine how the groups might work together during their respective design and construction planning periods.
