From an August 17 Minneapolis Parks Foundation e-newsletter:
The Minneapolis Parks Foundation has taken a formal leadership role in the RiverFirst Initiative alongside our co-Managing Partners the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the City of Minneapolis. The RiverFirst Initiative is the inter-agency partnership overseeing implementation of the sweeping RiverFirst Vision for parks-based city building on the Mississippi Upper Riverfront.
The Park Board approved a contract with us to administer the RiverFirst Initiative, including management of all sub-contracts. Our work in this 12-month start-up period will emphasize strategic finance research and strategy development and stakeholder relations, as well as strategic communications planning and implementation. In addition, the Parks Foundation provides city-building expertise and bridges the public and private sectors on behalf of this multifaceted, long-range effort.
