The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board adopted its current Comprehensive Plan in 2007. A two-year long development process involving over 4,000 residents, visitors, elected officials and MPRB staff, set forth a new direction for the organization. Research and outreach conducted for this project, shed light onto changes that had occurred in the city in terms of demographic composition, health and recreational trends, among others. With these findings in mind, MPRB’s 2007 Comprehensive Plan defined vision themes for the organization that reflected MPRB’s values and defined the ways in which it would carry out its mission.
 
A process to create a new comprehensive plan for MPRB is underway. The MPRB 2020 Comprehensive Plan will provide policy guidance to the organization through the year 2027. This planning process is a two-year commitment launched in the winter of 2018 that  will involve commissioners, staff, and the public in shaping the future direction of Minneapolis’ outstanding park and recreation system.
