At the meeting, the CAC will begin establishing a vision for the golf course property. A vision is a unique, high-level, singular statement that captures a community’s intent for a given area of parkland. Establishing a vision at the beginning of the master planning process allows for every subsequent decision to flow through and be filtered by the vision so that it meets the intent of the community.
At the July 25, 2018 Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) of Commisioners meeting, commissioners approved a modified Resolution 2018-230 after the Hiawatha Golf Course Property Master Plan Community Advisory Committee (CAC) requested clarification on the parameters of the new master plan for the property.
A discussion item regarding the CAC request for the Board of Commissioners to consider master planning for reduced and continued current pumping scenarios was tentatively scheduled for the June 6, 2018 Board meeting, but that discussion has been postponed. Commissioners wish to explore the project and the underlying water management complexities more fully with staff and the MPRB’s consulting engineers prior to a discussion of the requested revision to the CAC charge.
