The Levee Park Committee met Tuesday and decided to make a request to the city council to fund hiring the University of Minnesota's Center For Changing Landscapes (CCL) to assist in the planning and design of a refurbished Levee Park.
The CCL would spend 9 months assisting the commitee at a cost of $15,000.
Several ideas were discussed, including ways to attract kids and families to the levee
by tying in activties with local events like Earth Day, Steamboat Days, Mississippi Queen stops, car shows, the farmers market and various festivals.
Committee member Mike Kennedy says everyone agrees it's important to get as much public feedback as possible.
Kennedy says the committee will work on finding out just what type of attractions and activities would draw people to the park.
The committee will meet again March 26th at 3:00 p.m. in the We-no-nah Room at City Hall.
