Downtown Council moves to create new parks conservancy


Last week the Minneapolis Downtown Council and Downtown Improvement District (DID) made the first move toward creating the city’s first parks conservancy.

On June 10 the Downtown Council/DID’s (the two organizations merged last year) Executive Committee voted to allocate $50,000 toward creating a new branch of its organization that could operate, program and fundraise for public spaces downtown. Initially efforts will focus on Peavey Plaza and The Yard, the 3.4-acre park planned as part of the five-block Downtown East development.
