Southwest Service Area
Current Phase: System Planning
Deadline for submissions is April 23 at 2 pm
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB), City of Minneapolis and Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) are excited to announce two upcoming public open houses scheduled April 12 and April 17. These informal events are designed to begin conversations about four projects that will study, plan and improve Minnehaha Creek and surrounding public space in Southwest Minneapolis.
These three separate master plan projects will set visions and priorities for future park and trail improvements. The planning for each of these projects will be guided by separate Community Advisory Committees (CACs), which are appointed by various neighborhood organizations and elected officials.
Applications for the Mississippi Gorge Regional Park Master Plan CAC are due March 7. The deadline for Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail and Southwest Service Area Master Plan CACs has been extended to March 21.
The SWSAMP project will kick off in spring of 2018.

A Service Area Master Plan is a process that engages the community to:
The Southwest Service Area Master Plan (SWSAMP) will include all neighborhood parks south of I-394 and west of I-35W, including small triangle park properties. In all, 39 park properties are included in the SWSAMP project. (Map of all parks properties involved in the project coming soon.)
SWSAMP will not include regional parks such as Minneapolis Chain of Lakes Regional Park (including Brownie, Cedar, Lake of the Isles, Bde Maka Ska, and Harriet) nor regional trails (Kenilworth, Cedar Lake, and Minnehaha Parkway) because these parks and trails are required by the Metropolitan Council to have their own, separate master plans.
