The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board believes that meaningful community engagement is integral to the success of the Minneapolis Riverfront Development Initiative, as well as the financial, ecological and social sustainability of the projects that stem from it.

As part of the initial six-month Design Development Strategy phase of the MR|DI, we have established two channels – or phases – of community outreach and public input to inform the process of developing a practical and sustainable framework for Upper Riverfront development, while maintaining the original inspiration of the RiverFIRST vision.

Phase 1: Refining the Vision > Spring
Phase 2: Expanding Relevance > Summer
