East of the River Park Planning : We need you….

Help plan our Eastside Neighborhood Parks

Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board launches project to create long-term plan for all Minneapolis neighborhood parks east of the Mississippi River. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is seeking applications from the public to serve on the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) for the East of the River Park Master Plan. This planning project will guide long-term capital improvements, management and operations at all Minneapolis neighborhood parks east of the Mississippi River (Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis). Community members that offer diverse perspectives across race/ethnicity, age, physical ability, income and interest are encouraged to apply. To learn more about the CAC, https://www.minneapolisparks.org/park_care__improvements/park_projects/current_projects/east_of_the_river_park_master_plan/

Columbia Park has a seat on this CAC and is seeking interested parties to appoint. Parks in the neighborhood that are part of this planning process include Hi View, Columbia (including the dog park) and Architect Triangle.

Follow the Rules for Recreational Fires

Fire Pit

With the warmer weather, some of us are spending more time outside and enjoying outdoor fires. Following these Minneapolis laws will help keep our neighborhoods safe and livable:
  • Outdoor fires are permitted between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m.
  • Keep fire small: less than three feet in diameter and two feet high.
  • Postpone a fire when Minneapolis is under an air pollution advisory. Fires release fine particles that contribute to air pollution and are implicated in a number of health problems including strokes, heart attacks and asthma. Sign up for air quality alerts at http://mn.enviroflash.info.
  • Burn only untreated, unpainted, dry wood. Never burn cardboard boxes, trash or debris, because the smoke can be toxic. www.minneapolismn.gov/environment/air/airquality
  • Fire must be at least 25 feet away from a structure or combustible material and in a fire ring or pit with edges more than six inches high.
  • Have a hose or fire extinguisher present.
  • Postpone the fire when the wind exceeds 10 mph.
  • Fire must be constantly attended by someone 18 years or older and completely out before being abandoned.
Illegal open burning or recreational fires could result in fines that start at $200.
