Current Phase: System Planning
This month brings a series of meetings to discuss "preferred concepts" for each park. These concepts were created and refined by the project's design team, based on a range of community feedback gathered since summer 2017.
• Project start-up
• Park inventory and analysis
• Consultant selection
• Community Advisory Committee (CAC) application process
• Community visioning
• Community discussion park needs, likes, dislikes, concerns, and dreams
October 2017-June 2018
• Development of park concept plans
• Community discussion about park plans and area-wide vision
• Creation of North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP) document
• Community comments on the document
• Final adoption by MPRB Commissioners
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.
