City seeking applicants for Community Planning and Engagement Committee for Upper Harbor Terminal project
The City is seeking applicants for a Community Planning and Engagement Committee to work with the project team on the Upper Harbor Terminal redevelopment project.
The City Council recently approved a concept plan for redeveloping the 48-acre site along the riverfront in North Minneapolis home to a former barging terminal. The first phase is expected to include affordable housing, mixed-use development, riverfront parkland and an outdoor music performance venue.
The committee will work with the City of Minneapolis, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the project’s development team on community engagement, refining the first phase of the concept plan and visions for future development.
Applications are due April 14. The committee will include seven community resident members, five cultural group representative members and three affiliation group representative members. More details are available on the City Clerk’s website.
The City Council and Mayor Jacob Frey are expected to appoint the Community Planning and Engagement Committee in mid-May after the application and review process. The committee is expected to have its first meeting late May.
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is also establishing a Community Advisory Committee that will work concurrently on park-related components of the redevelopment project.
