The following notice has been issued by the Park Board.
Formal Master Plan Document to be Drafted This Summer, Followed by 45-day Comment Period
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) would like to thank the Calhoun-Harriet Master Plan Community Advisory Committee (CAC) for its tireless work throughout 11 public meetings spanning almost 10 months. At its last meeting, the CAC approved its final recommendations for the master plan, which will create a 25-year vision for Lake Calhoun, Lake Harriet and the surrounding parkland within Minneapolis Chain of Lakes Regional Park.
A formal master plan document is currently being drafted based on the final CAC recommendations. The draft master plan document is expected to be presented to the Board of Commissioners later this summer.
Once the Board of Commissioners receives the draft master plan document, it will open a 45-day public comment period. After the public comment period closes, MPRB staff will categorize and respond to each public comment and seek approval from the Board of Commissioners.
Once approved by the Board of Commissioners, the master plan will be submitted to the Metropolitan Council for its approval and final adoption. The first round of improvements identified in the master plan will begin in spring 2017.
