Please join your neighbors Tuesday, Feb. 20, for a fun and interactive park design brainstorming session as part of our monthly neighborhood meeting.
The design session, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Windom Park Recreation Center, is part of the East of the River Parks Master Plan process being conducted by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. This is your chance to directly weigh in on what you want to see at our neighborhood park. Park staff will lead us in brainstorming exercises and discussion specific to our neighborhood. Our new parks commissioner, Chris Meyer, also plans to attend.
Also joining us will be our new Minneapolis Police Department Crime Prevention Specialist Abdirashid Ali to talk about crime statistics and trends in the Windom Park area in light of recent reports from neighbors about an uptick in incidents here.
In addition, City Council Member Kevin Reich will provide an update on Ward 1 and the overall outlook for the new city council and mayor.
Time permitting, we try to reserve a spot on each month’s meeting agenda for Open Forum — where residents and neighborhood business owners can bring forward issues, concerns, and announcements pertinent to our community.
Snacks will be served. Free childcare is supervised by park staff. The meeting takes place in an accessible location and is open to all. Please contact us seven business days in advance to request other meeting accommodations.
