May 18 public meeting recap

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, along with the City of Minneapolis and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, hosted a meeting to provide a project update and to gather public input on the Hiawatha Golf Course property.

As with the previous meeting, attendees were randomly assigned into groups of 9 – 12 people.  Each group was asked to consider the following factors that might influence directions for water management and use: regulatory requirements and other water management evaluation, ecologic benefit, neighbor compatibility, uses and activities, community heath and other factors generated by the groups. After about 45 minutes, each group stood and was asked to present their findings.

A summary of findings presented and the project update presentation is below.
