Area CACs forming for master plans

Posted on 20 February 2018 by calvin

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will launch three new park master planning projects:

—Minnehaha Parkway Regional Trail Master Plan: Parkland along both sides Minnehaha Creek between Minnehaha Regional Park and the western city limit.

— Mississippi Gorge Regional Park Master Plan: Parkland flanking both the east and west banks of the Mississippi River between Bridge No. 9 and north edge of Minnehaha Regional Park.

— Southwest Service Area Master Plan: All Minneapolis neighborhood parks south of I-394 and west of I-35W, including small triangle park properties. Does not include regional parks such as Minneapolis Chain of Lakes Regional Park (including Brownie, Cedar, Isles, Bde Maka Ska, and Harriet) nor regional trails (Kenilworth, Cedar Lake, and Minnehaha) because regional parks and trails are required by the Metropolitan Council to have separate master plans.

These three separate master plan projects will set visions and priorities for future park and trail improvements. The planning for each of these projects will be guided by separate Community Advisory Committees (CACs), which are appointed by various neighborhood organizations and elected officials. Apply by Mar. 7 to advise on any or all of the projects as part of their CAC.
