The Upper Harbor Community Engagement Learning Table is a space to advance development that strengthens the social fabric of the existing North Minneapolis community, bring greater wealth and local ownership into the community, and foster stronger relationships between North Minneapolis and the Mississippi River.

The Learning Table provides the “learning water;” a place to ask critical questions and develop the “learning glue;” a place to develop relationships, create partnerships, and make commitments to explore ideas for incorporation in the development for the initiative. Each Learning Table theme is directly related to development topics with a goal to:

  • Learn together 
  • Create a shared approach 
  • Coordinate efforts

Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) Community Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting

6 p.m. to 8 p.m. CAC meeting (dinner still available)

Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board Headquarters

The focus of the fifth CAC meeting will be on the potential for “green gentrification” caused by new park land. MPRB, CAC members, and meeting participants will discuss strategies on how to address these concerns through the park process, creation, and ongoing operations. The public and families are invited to participate in both dinner and meeting.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board’s (MPRB) 17-member Community Advisory Committee (CAC) will work with the MPRB on the next phase of Upper Harbor park planning, including coordinating with the City and developer on infrastructure and private developments that will interact with the future park areas on site.
