Statement from Levee Park Committee Chair:
Regarding the Levee Park Vision Plan, the committee supports the general concept of re-balancing flood protection with the community’s connection to the river, but recognizes that the consultant from the University of Minnesota Center for Changing Landscapes proposes very significant changes to the flood protection system. It’s important to emphasize that this is a vision plan for the park – it is not a construction document. As with any large project like this, what is ultimately constructed contains important elements and concepts of the vision, but the details often differ. This is why public input is so important – we want to know what the community feels are the most important parts of this project – so that we can emphasize them moving forward.
