The Next Steps

A master plan has been developed that includes information relating to need, property acquisition, management, development concept, conflicts with other uses, operations, citizen participation, social needs and natural resources. 

The master plan will be submitted to the Metropolitan Council Park and Open Space Commission for adoption into the regional park and trail system. 

The Missing Link project will be eligible for federal, state and Metropolitan Council funding. Implementation will begin as funds become available. It is anticipated that completion of the Missing Link will take many years.
