Skatepark meetings with the city [well, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is a separate entity, but, quibbles] are a fine time to test one's faith in the system. Following a pretty impressive response to that online skatepark survey that was touted on here earlier this summer (1339 responses ain't bad), MPRB is holding two public meetings that will be about a citywide plan for future parks as well as what to do with the city's six existing skateparks.
Pulling directly from the press release, here's the pertinent info:
