Next Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail Master Plan CAC meeting scheduled January 21

Meeting will focus on new designs for the parkway corridor west of Cedar Avenue

The next Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail Master Plan Community Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting is scheduled Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020, 6-8 pm at Lake Nokomis Community Center, 2401 E Minnehaha Parkway.

CAC Meeting #11 will provide opportunity for the CAC and public to discuss the next round of designs for the parkway road, as well as other remaining design areas still under discussion.  Essentially, the meeting will include the entire corridor west of Cedar Avenue.

The design team is moving forward with another round of designs for the parkway road, per discussion during the last CAC meeting in December. In response to the recent traffic study and a diverse range of community comment on the current designs, these new designs will include a continuous parkway for vehicles and also address other underlying community concerns.

Specifically, the new designs will:

  • Include a continuous parkway for motorists in both directions
  • Retain the lower Nicollet Parkway under Nicollet Avenue
  • Enhance ecological function and ped/bike safety and comfort. They will not merely perpetuate existing conditions.
