The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board [MPRB] is working to understand the best aspects of options 1A and 4 and develop a revised design that can be embraced by the community. To help us better understand the community perspectives on the two options, individuals are being asked to complete a survey by March 26, 2014 at 11:59 pm.
The survey is designed to gather information related to critical design objectives of the play equipment, including how well it will hold the interest of users, it integrates the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. King and African American History theme into the design, and it meets the community’s playground needs.
The survey is available online (http://www.minneapolisparks.org/default.asp?PageID=1359) and at the park building.
Images of the playground designs they are looking at are below.
Thursday March 27, 6-8 PM at The Lowbrow, 4244 Nicollet
The Lowbrow has paired up with Finnegans and Full Cycle on the last Thursday of the month to let neighbors know about these great nonprofits and their missions!
Finnegans Inc., owns the beer brand and is a for profit S Corporation that pays the bills and salaries and then donates all the profits to the Finnegans Community Fund, a 501©3 non-profit. Over 98% of the funds that land in the Finnegans Community Fund are distributed to our non-profit partners to support hunger alleviation in each state where our product is sold. In Minnesota, profits go to support the Emergency Foodshelf Network’s Harvest for the Hungry program.
Full Cycle is a non-profit bicycle shop offering quality, refurbished, brand name bikes for sale. They also have a mission to connect with young people experiencing homelessness that are 16-23 years of age. Full Cycle offers six-month paid internships in the bike shop, free bikes by appointment, a youth specific food shelf, and access to Street Outreach workers that can provide an access to resources.
Drop into The Lowbrow this Thursday, meet representatives from both organizations, and Finnegans will even pour you one of their own, on the house, for sitting and chatting with them!
