MPRB public meetings seek input on Bike, Walk and Roll Plan
 
Minneapolis residents will get a chance to share their ideas on biking, skating, walking and running in Minneapolis parks at a series of meetings in February. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will host public meetings on the Bike, Walk and Roll Plan, one of the first activity plans to be initiated to develop a new Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for the MPRB.

Meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m. on:

  • Monday, Feb. 9, Lake Hiawatha Park, 2701 E. 44th St.
  • Thursday, Feb. 12, Windom NE Park (multi-purpose room), 2251 Hayes St. NE
  • Tuesday, Feb. 17, Loring Park (Great Room), 1382 Willow St.
  • Thursday, Feb. 19, Brackett Park, 2728 39th Ave. S
  • Monday, Feb. 23, Lynnhurst Park, 1345 Minnehaha Pkwy. W
  • Thursday, Feb. 26, Wirth Chalet (Fireplace Room), 1339 Theodore Wirth Pkwy.

The Bike, Walk and Roll Activity Plan will set the programming and infrastructure guidelines for biking, in-line skating, walking, mountain biking, hiking, running and BMX riding in Minneapolis parks.

The 2007-2010 MPRB Comprehensive Plan approved in 2007 calls for the development of activity plans that outline the delivery goals, benefits, facilities, operations and maintenance required to provide each major recreation activity (or group of similar activities) in the park system. The plans will be used to guide capital improvement and facility maintenance programs.

For language accommodations call 612-230-6472 at least 48 hours in advance.

For more information about the meetings or the CIP call 612-230-6400 or visit www.minneapolisparks.org Capital Improvements.
