Draft Park concepts and online survey posted; further discussion developing

Draft park concepts posted: watch online video, find presentation slides, boards, and an online survey. 

MPRB is seeking input on draft park program and concepts, public art master plan, and more. Find materials in one place on the website, take an online survey, share your thoughts, and pass the word around.  We are not asking for people to pick a concept, but are seeking input on the draft designs and what people like, do not like, feel is missing, etc. Although a few graphics are embedded in the survey, we highly advise that you watch the video first.  The survey focuses on a few key questions and the does not contain full information.

While the draft concepts largely focus on the possible physical layout of the key park experiences that we have heard requested, the discussion of how this park supports North Minneapolis community members is much larger. Watch for upcoming engagement opportunities.
