Public hearing for Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska-Harriet Master Plan set for April 19

Public hearing scheduled Wednesday, April 19, 6:30 pm at MPRB Headquarters

A public hearing for the Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska-Harriet Master Plan is scheduled April 19, 6:30 pm in the Board Room at Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) headquarters, 2117 West River Road. Any interested community members are invited to attend and comment on the Master Plan, which creates a 25-year vision for Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska, Lake Harriet, and surrounding parkland within Minneapolis Chain of Lakes Regional Park.

The Master Plan is the result of nearly two years of community-based planning and design. The public comment period opened on Jan. 18, 2017 and closed on March 4, 2017. Originally the public hearing was scheduled for the April 12, 2017 Board of Commissioners meeting, but additional time is needed for MPRB staff to address the hundreds of submitted public comments.

If the Board chooses to amend the Master Plan, it will be revised and an Executive Summary will be prepared. Both will be posted on the project webpage with a Table of Contents for the Appendix. Specific documents will be sent upon request due to the large number and size of the files within the Appendix.

Once the Master Plan is approved by the Board of Commissioners, it will be submitted to the Metropolitan Council for review and adoption. Future funding of capital improvements at the two lakes and surrounding parkland is contingent upon a Met Council adopted master plan.

To meet funding deadlines, a set of short-term, high-priority improvements identified by the Master Plan's Community Advisory Committee will begin in Summer/Fall 2017. Check out the Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska-Harriet Trail and Access Improvements project page for more details on that work.

Public Hearing
Date: April 19, 2017
Time: 6:30 pm
Location: MPRB Headquarters
Address: 2117 West River Road

This is Deb's reply to how one can sign up to speak if they want to speak:

There is a signup sheet outside the Board room the night of the hearing. You can also contact JGoodrich@minneapolisparks.org in the week before the hearing.
