The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will take community input through 2014 on more than $5 million in improvements planned for Northeast Park.
The next meeting about the plan is a community workshop Wednesday, July 31 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Logan Recreation Center, 690 13th Ave. NE.
At the meeting, the plan’s overview will be discussed, along with a needs assessment summary. There will also be an interactive park design exercise, in which those in attendance can discuss design concepts.
A follow-up meeting is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 3 from 10 a.m-12:30 p.m., once more at the Logan Recreation Center.
That meeting will have design concepts on display followed by a review and comment session regarding the designs.
The Northeast Park Master Plan is, according to a MPRB release, a part of the board’s “5-year Capital Improvement Program [and] currently includes $4,000,000 for building and site improvement and $1,150,000 in field and site improvements.”
Per the Master Plan, groundbreaking and construction would begin in 2015 and completed the following year.
