September 6, 2017, Wednesday - Public Hearing on Sheridan Memorial Park Improvements at MPRB

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Minneapolis Park and Rec Board, 2117 W River Road N

Public Hearing on Sheridan Memorial Park Improvements

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is holding a public hearing on proposed improvements for Sheridan Memorial Park. Sheridan Memorial Park will receive more than $1 million in park improvements in 2018. After evaluating feedback from three public meetings and an online survey, a preferred concept for the park improvements has been created. Click the link below to view a detailed depiction of the proposed improvements, which include new playgrounds, paths, public art, picnic shelter, restrooms, a basketball court and volleyball court.

During the hearing, interested members of the public will have a chance to weigh in the proposed improvements before the Board of Commissioners. After the hearing is closed, commissioners will consider its approval. If approved, construction bids will be awarded over winter 2017-2018 and the park improvements will be built during spring-summer 2018. In 2015 the MPRB was awarded a $500,000 grant  from the National Park Service Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership project. The federal grant is matched by $1 million in Minnesota Parks and Trails Legacy Funding (administered by Met Council).
