Upcoming Meetings

There are currently no meetings scheduled.

The City of Minneapolis ordered a rain leader, or sanitary sewer, disconnect at Farwell Park and Audubon Park in 2014.  Storm water discharges are prohibited by Chapter 56 of the City of Minneapolis ordinance. MPRB has been working since that time to finalize plans to make the disconnection and to redirect storm water to the storm sewer.  City of Minneapolis Public Works crews will be performing the work, on behalf of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.

When the parks’ storm and sanitary infrastructure were originally constructed, they met the ordinances, codes, and regulations in force at the time.  Chapter 56 violations are not grandfathered in, however, and so the infrastructure must be updated.

This work is funded by NPP20.
