The Mpls Park and Rec Board has CLOSED the survey for the new playground. Jennifer Ringold reports that there is a “strong” showing for option 1A and 4. You can view all options on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/giahue.schendel/media_set?set=a.10152245899211030&type=1
There will be another meeting to discuss possibly integrating ideas of both options; the intent is to create a place where neighbors can give input/ feedback.
KFNA is curious what the best way to connect with families is on this matter. Family involvement from those of us who want to use MLK park is critical now and has dwindled since the first survey on playground design was distributed last summer. Please share your ideas on better ways to connect with you and your children. You can email me directly at email@example.com.
The Park Employee in charge of community engagement on this project is Jennifer Ringold and you may also feel free to contact her at 612-230-6464, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The final community meeting showing multiple playground Â designs and theme options was held last night, however, you can still comment/vote through today! Â Your input matters! Â Especially looking for input from parents of younger children as the participating community last night was a generally older crowd.
Here is the link to voteÂ http://www.minneapolisparks.org/default.asp?PageID=1359Â We believe voting will end on Sunday…. Not sure the time so if you care to comment PLEASE do it right away!
