Open houses planned for Coon Rapids’ park strategic planing

The city of Coon Rapids has a large system of parks and trails that are well utilized by the public.

To continue this tradition, the city has embarked on a new strategic planning process to help guide the maintenance and development of parks, recreation and open space planning for the future.

The public is invited to attend two upcoming open house events to provide input and ideas for parks planning and development for the future.

The events will take place on Wednesdays, May 23 and May 30, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Coon Rapids City Center Council Chambers, 11155 Robinson Drive N.W., Coon Rapids.

The firm of Brauer & Associates, Ltd. is helping the city guide its strategic planning process.

Brauer & Associates will also lead the open house events, sharing highlights of what the firm has learned about the city’s park system to date and discuss preliminary planning ideas and approaches for moving forward.
