Please Help: Minnesota River Valley Master Plan

by Jeff on July 28, 2014

If you use and value the Riverbottoms area this is the most important posts I’ve ever made to Bike Jerks.

If you’ve read this site for any amount of time you know how much the Bottoms means to me, it’s the number one reason to live in this city, the combination of culture and the easy access to someplace wild.

Plans are currently being drawn up for the development of the area, and I for one am scared shitless that we are going to lose the last wild place in Minneapolis. There are plans for anything from a simple gravel path to a full on mowed city park with bathrooms and drinking fountains and huge parking lots being considered for the area near Cedar bridge.

Not only would this totally ruin the wild spirit of the place, but dumping tons of money into developing an area which floods annually seems insane. Unless of course they put into place huge levees to prevent the flooding…

If you would like to have your voice heard, please fill out the survey and check out the meeting. I know I plan on being there. We only get one chance to save this area from Bloomington style Mall of America Mickey Mouse bullshit development. Let’s not blow it.

For information on the MNRV master plan, go to the City’s website at http://bloomingtonmn.gov/proj/mnrv/mnrv.htm. On this page you will find a public survey soliciting input on the MNRV master plan. We encourage you to take the survey and please feel free to share the survey link with anyone that you think may have an interest. In addition to the focus group meeting, a public open house has been scheduled on Thursday, July 31, 2014 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Bloomington Civic Plaza Council Chambers.

Treasure and I are off to Saddle Drive, a QBP dealer event, then are heading out to Wyoming for another crack at Middle Teton. This is a pretty big deal for us as we’ve got a bit of unfinished business out there. It’ll be an emotional climb, far too long in the making.

If you’re curious as to what happened last time we attempted, go here.

Be back on the 28th.

Hope you have a great week. Wish us luck and safety.
