Minneapolis Park Board: Keep it or kill it?


The Minneapolis City Charter Commission will hold hearings on proposals to abolish the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board and on other major changes proposed for city government. Proponents say the changes will make city government more efficient. Opponents say the changes will consolidate and centralize power, diminishing checks and balances. The first meeting was held last week, and there were strong opinions expressed. Go – listen – participate!
