Boom Island / B. F. Nelson Charrettes

The MPRB has issued the following notice for the MPRB – Central Riverfront Master Plan Boom Island and B.F. Nelson January Charrette Meetings:

Community Advisory Committee Members, Commissioners, and Neighbors,

The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board will host a two-day charrette to gather public input for the Central Mississippi Riverfront Regional Park Master Plan.

Nelson Parks and their connections.  A charrette is an intensive creative session intended to generate alternative approaches to a design problem. It is a way to immerse a project team with key stakeholders and the community in a real-time, iterative learning and creative process. Please join us!
