NRP Future Funding options
I want to post two additional links relating to civic engagement in general and to future funding for NRP in particular.
This is the latest issue of the NRP Link, the Mpls. NRP Newsletter.
On the first page it does a nice job of summarizing the work of the NRP Future Funding Task Force and outlining some of the options for the future funding of NRP.
The full report can be read here.
These recommendations make an excellent starting place for finding ways to fund NRP in the future. They have been forwarded to all the jurisdictions involved in NRP: City of Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, Minneapolis Library Board, Minnesota State Legislature and Minneapolis School Board, for comment.
If we are to secure future funding for NRP it will take a great deal of grassroots support and effort. Please take the time to look these over and share your thoughts and ideas with me, other elected officials, community members and neighbors.
