MPRB Seeks Residents Interested in Serving on a Community Advisory Committee

Via a November 29 e-newsletter from Minneapolsi Park and Rec Board:

Applications for 2018 appointments are due Friday, December 22, 2017

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) Board of Commissioners is seeking applications for appointments to five ongoing community advisory committees:

- Saint Anthony Falls Heritage Board – One Appointment
- Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee – Three Appointments
- Neighborhood & Community Engagement Commission (NCEC) – One Appointment
- Minneapolis Tree Advisory Commission – Four Appointments
- HomeGrown Food Council – One Appointment

Service commitment may vary based upon needs, expectations and policy goals. However, most advisory committee members can expect to approximately 10-15 hours of work per month. Most terms are two years and all board and commission members are not subject to term limits.

Some Boards/Commissions have a need for specialized skills, but most people will find a Board or Commission that is a great fit for their knowledge base. Public members of Board and Commissions are people who may not have regular, ongoing experience in a specific topic area, but have a general interest in a Board or Commission’s work area. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about an area of interest and contribute a perspective that is fresh and unique to the service area.

Applications must be received no later than 5 p.m., Friday, December 22, 2017. Following submission, applicants will receive an email confirming receipt of the application and describing the general process for appointment. Appointments for open positions will be made at the January 2, 2018 business meeting of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. For a full description of each committee and to complete the application please visit:

Applicants with questions about the appointments process should email their questions to or contact Radious Guess at 612-230-6419.
