1. The final report and recommendation of the Lake Harriet Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) to the Board. The CAC is recommending that no additional buildings be built on the shoreline of Lake Harriet as originally proposed by Park Board staff; and that the current Lake Harriet refectory be remodeled within its existing footprint so that it can preserve its aesthetic design and and still accommodate an expanded menu.
