Public Hearing Notice
Dean Parkway/Cedar Lake Trail Improvement Project
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) Planning Committee will hold a public hearing on a concept plan for proposed trail improvements along Dean Parkway and Cedar Lake on Wednesday, March 6 at 6:30 p.m. at MPRB Headquarters, 2117 W. River Rd., Minneapolis.
The resolution before the Planning Committee is to approve the preferred concept plan as recommended by a Community Advisory Committee (CAC). Trail safety, usability/functionality, and tree preservation were the community priorities that guided the CAC’s overall recommendations for trail improvements.
The concept plan is based on community preferences received through extensive outreach, including three public meetings, an open house, and public surveys. Included in the plan are separated bicycle and pedestrian trails between Dean Parkway and Kenilworth Trail as well as safety improvements at key intersections. Missing segments of connecting off-street trails will be added between West Lake of the Isles Parkway and Cedar Lake Parkway. The parking lots on Cedar Lake will be modified and the bicycle trail realigned along the parkway.
You are invited to attend this public hearing where you will have an opportunity to review the plans and share your comments with the Planning Committee.
