Funding, Timeline, and Master Plan Phases
Because this project has $250,000 in state Parks and Trails Legacy Fund dollars for master planning the Mississippi Gorge Regional Park and $2,108,000 in state Parks and Trails Legacy Fund dollars that have been slated for use at Bohemian Flats/Lower Riverside, all of which will expire June 30, 2019, the master planning process will run as follows: Bohemian Flats/Lower Riverside will be the earliest focus of 2018 and following CAC identification of prioritized rehabilitation projects for this area, Phase I rehabilitation construction projects for Bohemian Flats/Lower Riverside will run concurrent with master planning for the areas of Bohemian Flats/Lower Riverside unaddressed through rehabilitation projects, as well as the rest of the Mississippi Gorge Regional Park. Per funding requirements, all master planning must be completed by June 30, 2019. It is expected that the Mississippi Gorge Master Plan will come before the board in a public hearing and for approval toward the end of 2018. After a public hearing and full MPRB Board approval of the plan and CAC recommendations, the consultant will finalize the document for submission to the Metropolitan Council. The consultant will also provide an accessible copy of the document to be posted on the MPRB website. Phase II construction, which could include more rehabilitation or specialized work, is expected to begin in 2019. The Master Plan will inform the activities that will be included in Phase II construction and provide priorities for future projects.
