The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is holding a public hearing for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park Playground concept plan. The hearing will be held on July 16, 2014 at 6:30 pm in the 2nd floor board room of MPRB Headquarter at 2117 West River Road in Minneapolis. The draft concept plan and play equipment designs are the result of an extensive community engagement process that included more than 150 individuals, including more than 60 youth. A guiding design theme for the concept and play equipment is celebrating and honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and African American history. An artist team worked with the community, MPRB staff and design consultants to bring this theme into the playground design.

“I am thankful to everyone that participated in the planning for the new playground and look forward to celebrating with the community its opening in 2015,” said Commissioner Brad Bourn, 6th Park District.

The development of the concept plan included six community meetings, events in the park, community surveys and public consultations at Sabathani Community Center and Kingfield’s Farmer’s Market. Spanish interpreters were provided, as needed, at community meetings and at the Sabathani Community Center consultations. In addition, postcards, surveys and flyers were developed in English and Spanish. Individuals have also been able to track the project through regular email updates, mailings and online information. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Council and Kingfield Neighborhood Organization assisted with notification and community engagement throughout the development of the concept design.

All those attending the public hearing will have an opportunity to review the plans and share their comments with the Planning Committee of the MPRB Board of Commissioners. If you are interested in speaking, you may sign up until 6:25 pm. on the day of the hearing. If you require language translation or other accommodations, please call 612-230-6472 at least two business days prior to the hearing.

    This week KFNA offers a look at “The ART of Community & Play”. Kingfield Artist, Rachel Breen, is back at the market and you can learn about her community “seeding” project as well as representatives from the Minneapolis Park board, presenting designs for comments for the new playground coming to MLK Park in 2015.

    Rachel Breen will be having conversations with neighbors about what they have inherited and what they would like to pass on to future generations. She will be incorporating impressions from these conversations, along with images of heirloom seeds and plants into the creation of the murals she will make on neighborhood garages. According to Rachel, “My recent work has explored the practice of saving heirloom seeds, asking larger questions about what we have inherited from the past and the legacy we hope to leave behind. By focusing on my work on activity that humans have been doing for thousands of years to protect seeds, I ask the public to consider our role in sustaining the environment today and into the future. “

    Playground Design Team Members will be at the Market to display the equipment design and collect comments from 10 AM- 1 PM. The design team is energized by the additional comments they received through the most recent survey. The comments are enriching both the theming and the play value to produce a better playground equipment design. The goal is to finalize the design on June 25, 2014, then bring it and the overall concept for the playground area to the MPRB for approval in July.

    also…Build a mini Kingfield!
    This Sunday at 10 am kids and families can gather under the info tent to build a model of a mini Kingfield neighborhood out of legos!

    Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 4055 Nicollet Avenue South, Minneapolis

    Bring your bikes, trikes, and don’t forget your helmet!  Bicycle riders of all ages are encouraged to test your peddling skills on a safety course provided by the Minneapolis Park Police.  We’ll cover safety tips, have free equipment checks, and conduct proper helmet fittings.

    Haven’t registered your bike with the City yet?  We can help with that, too!  Volunteers from the Kingfield Neighborhood Association Crime Prevention and Safety Committee will be on hand to enter your information into the Minneapolis Bicycle Registration Database.  This can help increase the chances of your bike being returned to you if it is lost or stolen, but also can help identify the rider in case of a bike crash (many bicyclists don’t carry identification with them – especially children).
