Digital survey recently launched
The City of Fridley is in the first phase of a major parks master plan.
“Once completed, this plan will affect all of Fridley’s parks in one way or another,” said Luke Cardona, the city’s marketing and communications manager.
The first major phase of this effort is community engagement by way of four community workshops that will be held at the Fridley Civic Campus.
“We’re inviting the public to these interactive workshops that will result in them having a direct impact on the parks master plan,” Cardona added.
The four workshops, all at Fridley City Hall, 7071 University Ave., NE, are as follows:
- The first workshop, will be held 6-8 p.m., Thursday, June 27, and will be an open discussion about the city’s parks and trails and how they should be improved;
- The second workshop, exploring options, will be held 6-8 p.m., Thursday, July 11. This interactive workshop will allow residents to consider options for the different types of parks located across the city.
- The third workshop to be held 6-8 p.m., Thursday, July 25, will use background from the two previous workshops to consider what will be needed to achieve completion of ideas presented; and
- Final recommendations will be considered at this final workshop, 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 8.
The city has also launched a digital solution for residents to give their feedback atcityoffridley.mysocialpinpoint.com/parksandtrails#/sidebar/tab/survey.
