Share Your Views on Sustainability with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board(MPRB) has provided a link to its community survey on sustainability, hoping that you'll take a few minutes to complete the survey before February 26.

The survey is one way the MPRB is collecting public feedback on its sustainability initiatives – from watering trees to recycling in the parks and at community events. Sustainability was identified in the 2007-2020 Comprehensive Plan as one of the five core organizational values upon which the MPRB performs its work.

The MPRB will use the survey's findings to help plan its education and outreach efforts regarding sustainability in Minneapolis parks, programs and events.

Click hereto complete the survey online. Paper versions are also available in all of MPRB's recreation and service centers.

Please feel free to pass the survey link on to others who may be interested in keeping the park system green.

FERC Gives Crown Hydro 30 Days

Letter from FERC dated February 13, 2012 which may be the last straw for Crown Hydro, given their need to use either the existing historic tunnel and tailrace, or construct a new tunnel (not feasible), both of which would require at least subsurface rights from the City of Minneapolis or the Park Board.

Based on our review of the history ofthe license and your filings, and before we will agree to consider your proposal and not to pursue the implied surrender of your license, you must: (I) affirmatively demonstrate, with a detailed map and proposed project description, that no MPRB lands (to include any subsurface rights, easements, or other legal claims) would be affected or included in the new proposed scheme of project development and boundary; and (2) provide a plan and schedule, including all efforts and steps needed, to complete the development of this project.

We usually start with an appetizer, but this time we opted to have dessert instead.  The Caramelia Chocolate Marquise is pure melt in your mouth ecstasy.   You just have to try it to understand.
