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.
