PUBLIC HEARING FOR THEODORE WIRTH REGIONAL PARK MASTER PLAN

The MPRB has issued the following notice:

PUBLIC HEARING FOR THEODORE WIRTH REGIONAL PARK MASTER PLAN

On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, at 6:30 p.m., the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will hold a public hearing on the Theodore Wirth Regional Park Master Plan.  The hearing will be held in the Board Room at MPRB Headquarters, 2117 West River Road in Minneapolis. Individuals wishing to speak at the hearing may call 612-230-6400 to sign up in advance, or may sign up outside the MPRB board room until 6:25 pm the day of the hearing. After the hearing the MPRB Commissioners will consider approval of the plan. 

The Master Plan is a written and graphic document intended to relate current park data and analysis, communicate a plan for the park’s future, and guide strategic implementation of the plan over the next 20 years. The master plan document is a reflection of the recommendations of an appointed Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and the input of the public, neighborhood organizations, partner agencies, and other stakeholders. 

The previously issued Draft Master Plan has been revised based on public, MPRB staff, and agency comments.  The final plan to be considered for approval will be made available to the public when the Board Meeting agenda and packet is made public, around the Friday before the February 18 meeting.  At that time the public may access the document and all supporting materials via the Park Board’s meeting website (www.minneapolisparks.org then click “View Board Meetings and Agendas) or via the

project webpage (www.minneapolisparks.org/currentprojects

then click “Theodore Wirth Regional Park Improvements”).  For general information about the planning process to date, visit the project webpage
