What’s your vision for Lake Minnewashta?

As you may know, the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, with help from Minnesota Waters, selected the Lake Minnewashta Preservation Association for training that will guide our association through the process of creating a comprehensive Lake Management Plan (LMP). The LMP addresses all aspects of our lake and provides the opportunity to create a comprehensive guide to addressing the top priorities for our group. Additionally, we are eligible for $2400 in funding that we will apply to improving the quality of the lake.

As part of the Lake Management Plan program, the LMPA is hosting a community visioning session to seek your input! Please join us on May 14th at Faith Lutheran Church (corner of Minnewashta Parkway and Highway 5) from 9:30 a.m – 12:00 noon

We will be discussing and asking for your input on the lake management plan and the action plans we should be taking on topics, such as:

· Invasive species
· Fisheries
· Runoff and erosion

As part of the lake management plan program, a few LMPA members attended a day-long training session which provided funding information, while broadening our horizons and increasing our knowledge of our lake and what we can do to “enhance” its quality. We look forward to sharing information about this program with you and hearing your input!

We hope to see you on May 14th !

Please contact Paul Quarberg at pquarberg@gmail.com to confirm your attendance or for more information.

    Unfortunately, this meeting was very sparsely attended. We will be working to market it over the summer with the intention of holding it again on 9/26/11. If you care about the lake, you should be attending. If you don’t care about the lake, you probably aren’t reading this.
