It’s Official: Mpls Park Board Adopts RiverFirst

Last night, March 14, 2012, the nine-member Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board officially adopted the RiverFirst vision, when it approved Resolution 2012-133 (pdf).

The unanimous vote sets in motion design and planning for Upper Riverfront projects slated to break ground in 2013, including the Scherer Park District, loop trails and knot bridges, and greenway corridors leading to both east and west banks.

Other important activities authorized under the RiverFirst resolution include officially unifying the vision, initiative, and projects under the “RiverFirst” moniker, and establishing a collaboration agreement between the Minneapolis Park Board and RiverFirst partners, notably the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Parks Foundation.
