Over 60 residents gathered on Sept. 23 to discuss the future of Corcoran Park. CNO organized the meeting in cooperation with Corcoran Park staff in response to Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board requests for input on future improvements to park amenities, programs and services, and recreation centers around the city.
Everyone who attended shared what they love about Corcoran Park, and what they’d most love to improve or change. CNO gathered additional input through conversations at the park with families, Twin Cities Native Lacrosse and other frequent users, through door-knocking, through conversations with local day care providers, and through an online survey that closed Oct. 4. Through this process we heard from well over 150 households and we analyzed the input to identify the community’s top priorities.
The CNO Board has sent a summary of the neighborhood’s top improvement priorities with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. These priorities will become an action plan for park staff, the park board, CNO, and the community to implement over time.
