You’re invited: Discuss preferred concepts for North Minneapolis parks at two meetings in June

The process of developing, recommending and approving design concepts for every Minneapolis neighborhood park north of I-394 and west of the Mississippi River [PDF] continues in June. These park designs have been developed as part of the long-term plan for the area’s parks, known as the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP).

The community advisory committee (CAC) will host meetings on June 4 and June 14 to review and discuss the single “preferred concept” for each park in the area. The public is welcome to attend both meetings; a light dinner will be served, and include take-away containers for those observing Ramadan.

About the meetings

Last winter, the design team developed several initial design concepts for each park (see links below). Now, based on community responses to those concepts, the team is working to create one design for each park for final discussion. These designs will be made available to the public before the first meeting on June 4.

CAC #7 will be dedicated to discussing the concept for each of the parks, and then deciding which concepts need further discussion and which are likely ready for the CAC’s recommendation.

CAC #8 will be dedicated to more in-depth discussions about the concepts for those parks that need it.
