Criteria Based System for Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board Capital and Rehabilitation Project Scheduling
An urban park system’s equity decision-making tool for capital investments
In selecting projects to be funded by the 20 Year Neighborhood Parks Funding Plan, the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board (MRPB) developed a set of equity-based criteria for prioritizing capital investment and large rehabilitation projects. This effort is meant to quantifiably evaluate neighborhood parks, and ensure that investments are equitably targeted and support a central theme of MPRB’s Comprehensive Plan: to meet diverse community needs. Community characteristic values were determined at the neighborhood scale park characteristic values are based on the specific assets within each individual neighborhood park. The criteria draws on multiple data sources and could be modified for green schoolyard site selection within a city.
