Current Phase: System Planning
January's Design Week is the next step for NSAMP. Two intensive creative sessions bring together the public, MPRB staff and designers to collectively develop concepts for Northside parks as part of a shared learning and creative process. In addition, the design team continues its work during Design Week and afterward, using public input collected from the sessions and since the launch of the NSAMP project.
The public is welcome to attend meetings hosted by four work groups dedicated to particular Northside parks and related topics. The groups are part of the planning process for the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP) for all neighborhood parks in Minneapolis north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River.
The public is welcome to attend meetings hosted by three newly established work groups as part of the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP), currently underway by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB).
The North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP) will have extensive community engagement, and lots of different ways to participate. Throughout 2017, we expect to be in the parks, at community events, attending community meetings, and trying to talk with as many people as we can.
For now, there are three ways to get involved:

A Service Area Master Plan is a process that engages the community to:
The North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP) will include all neighborhood parks north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River. It does not include Regional Parks (Theodore Wirth, Victory Parkway, North Mississippi, and Above the Falls/RiverFirst) because these parks are required by the Metropolitan Council to have their own master plans.
The project WILL include the Shingle Creek Regional Trail corridor and the Wirth Parkway corridor between Golden Valley Road and Lowry Avenue. These regional facilities do not have current master plans, so we will plan them along with the north side neighborhood parks. In all, 34 park properties are included in the NSAMP project.
