The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is working on a plan for Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet that will guide investments in these parks over the next 25 years. They would like to hear from you!
How can the MPRB make these parks more welcoming and accessible? What activities do or would you enjoy doing around Calhoun and Harriet? What issues have you observed? What would like to see improved? Please send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the project manager, Deborah Bartels, at 612-230-6438.
A Community Advisory Committee (CAC), made up of appointments by elected officials and neighborhood organizations, has been meeting since July 21 to guide preparation of the master plan. Five meetings and two open houses have been held thus far. The CAC is currently reviewing three concepts for Calhoun and Harriet. These will be refined into a Preferred Concept presented on 10/27.
