Help create a long-term plan for North Minneapolis neighborhood parks!

 Passionate about North Minneapolis parks? Apply to the North Service Area Master Plan CAC by March 21!

A new project called the North Service Area Master Plan will create a long-term plan for all outdoor improvements and management at North Minneapolis neighborhood parks.   

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is seeking applications from the general public to serve on the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) for the North Service Area Master Plan (NSAMP). This planning project will guide long-term capital improvements, management and operations within the North Minneapolis Service Area.

NSAMP is a unique opportunity to set the vision for north side parks for the coming decades. The project will take a complete look at all outdoor park facilities, create improvement plans for each neighborhood park, and guide decisions on capital improvements—including NPP20 fundingallocations.

The CAC will work with MPRB staff and consultants over the next 12-18 months to make recommendations to MPRB Commissioners. Project details and CAC applications are linked below. They are also available by contacting the MPRB Project Manager, Adam Arvidson, at 612-230-6470 / or by picking up applications in person at each of the six recreation centers in the North Service Area.

MPRB will translate applications upon request.
