Background and Funding
Master Plan Community Engagement Background
The South Service Area Master Plan (SSAMP), in which Currie Park is included, is the result of nearly two years of planning and design by MPRB staff, the community, and hired technical consultants. Nearly 100 community engagement events were held and several different stages of input garnered thousands of individual comments on park plans, guiding principles, and the planning process itself. Specifically, for the Currie Park Open House, translators were provided in Somali, Oromo, Korean and Vietnamese. Printed surveys were also provided in Somali, often requiring responses be translated back into English for staff review. All of this was done in an effort to ensure that the planning process was open and equitable for community members often left out of planning processes, namely people of color and recent immigrants.
