Community Workshops

Noble Parkway & HWY 610

The City of Brooklyn Park invites you to an important conversation to guide the future development of the old Park and Ride lot at Noble Parkway and HWY 610.

In early 2020, the City of Brooklyn Park launched a series of community workshops to guide opportunities for future development of the old Park and Ride lot. The workshops were postponed in March due to COVID-19 and are now scheduled to take place in November 2021.

The City invites you to conclude this important conversation to guide future development opportunities. The final two sessions will recap what was gathered in early 2020 and build consensus for the final recommendations to be submitted to the Brooklyn Park City Council.

Mark your calendars. We encourage participants to attend both events.

Virtual and in-person options will be available for the November 9th session, but in-person attendance is strongly encouraged for the November 16th session.

All events are FREE and open to the public.

To receive a virtual meeting link, RSVP to Gretchen Nicholls at gnicholls@lisc.org.
