South Minneapolis Parks

Open house for South Minneapolis Parks Master Plan scheduled Feb. 1

Initial concepts included in South Service Area Master Plan will be discussed at Brian Coyle Center Feb. 1

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) hosts its fifth community open house related to the South Service Area Master Plan (SSAMP) on Feb. 1, 2016, 6-8 pm at the Brian Coyle Center, 420 15th Ave. S. The SSAMP is a project that will create new plans for all neighborhood parks in Minneapolis residing south of Downtown and east of I-35W.

Four open houses were previously held in December. At these open houses, the public can view initial concepts for Currie Park and other South Minneapolis parks and provide input prior to the next stage of design. There are no formal presentations, making it easier for community members to attend at their own preferred time. Children are also encouraged to participate; activities will be available. Somali and Oromo translation will be provided.

Initial park concepts can also be viewed on the project page, along with materials related to previous community engagement activities and ongoing demographic and facilities research. Anyone can comment on the South Minneapolis park concepts by filling out an online survey or contacting the project manager listed below. The online survey closes Jan. 22.
