Gold Medal Park Permanence Plan

cfroid

Great article from Mill City Times describing Lisa Goodman's solution for the upcoming lease expiration for the Mill District's Gold Medal Park: "City Council Member Lisa Goodman announced a long term solution for preserving Gold Medal Park at the October 21, 2013 meeting of the Mill District Neighborhood Association.

Dubbed the “Gold Medal Park Permanence Plan”, Council Member Goodman outlined a very simple plan:  Use the existing lease arrangement between the Parks Foundation and the City, due to expire in 2 years, as the template and make two simple changes – the term of the lease would be 50 years and the foundation would no longer pay the City of Minneapolis $50,000 per year for the “right” to provide a public amenity for city residents.

Goodman stated that she believes she has the votes to pass the plan, targeting December 2013 for passage.  Prior to the vote, the plan would be heard by the City Planning Commission.
