Applications Now Being Accepted for the Cedar-Riverside-based Study Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

Now accepting applications: Community Advisory Committee for Cedar-Riverside-based study

About the predesign study

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is exploring the potential for building a new recreation center in the Interstate 94/Riverside Corridor, integrated into a larger development on the east end of the Augsburg University campus. The new recreation center would help supplement the programming offered at the Brian Coyle Community Center. A renovation or nearby relocation of the Brian Coyle Community Center is also being explored as part of this study. Additional information and key documents are on the project web page

About the community advisory committee (CAC)

The predesign study will be guided by a community advisory committee (CAC), with members appointed by MPRB commissioners and an MPRB selection committee. 

Community advisory committees provide volunteer opportunities for stakeholders to share insight and resources and serve to build and sustain relationships between the community, partner agencies, and the MPRB. Members of the CAC are expected to represent the views of park users and to work collaboratively with each other and the public to provide comprehensive recommendations to the Board about the project.
