Meeting June 3 to Gather Input on West Bank Interpretive Plan

The following announcement has been issued by the Park Board:

Meeting will focus on the West Bank Interpretive Plan by the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board

The St. Anthony Fall Heritage Board is currently conducting an interpretive study of the West Bank area of Central Mississippi Riverfront Regional Park.  There will be an advisory committee meeting on June 3, 2014 to gather input for this plan.  This West Bank effort is similar to the East Bank Interpretive Plan: http://www.mnhs.org/places/safhb/pdf/EastBankVisionPlan_hires.pdf completed last fall.  This plan is funded by the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board.  The meeting is open to the public. Please join us!

Excerpt from the East Bank Interpretive Plan: “This plan builds on years of research and many proposed visions for the St. Anthony Falls area. In particular, The Power of the Falls: Renewing the Vision for St. Anthony Falls Heritage Zone (2009): http://www.mnhs.org/places/safhb/pdf/2009interpplan/Report_small_12_23_09.pdf sets forth a set of interpretive themes that acknowledge the value of reflection and personal experience in learning about this important place in our history.”
