Comment on Draft Ecological System Plan

After the public comment period closes, MPRB staff will compile and analyze feedback received and potentially adjust the plan. Then the Board of Commissioners will host a public hearing before considering its approval.

About this project

The Ecological Systems Plan, in conjunction with the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, will set a vision for making Minneapolis parks and public lands more friendly to the environment.
