Survey asks, What brings people to the Lake Harriet concession?

A committee tasked with determining the future of concessions at Lake Harriet wants citizen input.

The group already has been performing in-person surveys at the lake. Now, they’ve moved online. Topics the 10-question survey covers include what positive or negative impacts a concession change at Lake Harriet could have and whether those surveyed would spend more on higher-quality offerings.

Southwest residents also can provide input at a July 30 community meeting. The committee is seeking information on how a change to the concession would affect neighbors. For example, would more food options be a good thing?

The meeting will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 4201 Sheridan Ave.

As set up by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the committee has to complete these tasks: assess the scope of concession opportunities at Lake Harriet, consider the possibility of an extra building and present recommendations to the board. They next meet July 13 at the Linden Hills Recreation Center, 3100 W. 43rd St. For more information about their work, click here or here.
