Public Hearing on Hiawatha Golf Course Property Master Plan scheduled February 17

Public hearing will begin at 6:30 pm during regular Board of Commissioners meeting


The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) will hold a public hearing on the Hiawatha Golf Course Property Master Plan on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 6:30 pm. Board meetings are being held virtually during the pandemic, see below for options to participate in the public hearing.


The Hiawatha Golf Course Area Master Plan is a written and graphic document intended to guide capital improvements in the area over the next 20-30 years. The master plan document is a direct reflection of the input provided by the appointed Community Advisory Committee (CAC), which met 7 times between March 2018 and July 2019, and extensive additional community engagement. The plan will be posted to the Hiawatha Golf Course Master Plan project page on Friday, Feb. 12.
