The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is hosting a community meeting to discuss the dog park proposal:
September 2, 6:30 PM, MLK Park Gym.
We need YOU at this meeting to advocate for this community-building, safety-creating strategy! If you want to learn more about the proposal visit here, and if you want to really stay up-to-date and help the project, friend Kingfield Dogpark on Facebook here.
Show your support for the Kingfield Off-Leash Dogpark!
A) Buy a Kingfield Dogpark t-shirt or doggie drink bottle at the Kingfield Farmers’ Market this Sunday at the KFNA table (read about how KFNA uses this table to build support for neighborhood projects in a recent Southwest Journal story by a Market Board Member!) The $20 cost for a T or bottle goes directly to the dog park project.
Please take a minute to complete a quick online survey about Nicollet Avenue. The purpose of this survey is to help us understand how people use Nicollet Avenue today and how they would like to use the corridor after the reconstruction of Nicollet between 31st and 40th street is complete in 2013. The area of Nicollet being reconstructed will run from 31st to 40th street. The information in this survey will be used by the Nicollet Avenue Reconstruction Steering Committee to help guide the design process for this important community corridor. You can find more information about the project on our Nicollet News page
