Wayzata Lake Next Steps

Posted on October 24th, 2014 under Talk of the Town.

Since the adoption of the Lake Effect Framework in March, the City Council has been focused on implementation of the plan.  To assist with this work, the Council retained Mary deLaittre of Groundwork: The Foundation for City Building in September to develop an implementation strategy for the Wayzata Lake Effect Plan.  Ms. deLaittre previous work includes the RiverFirst project for the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board as well as the former Executive Director at the Minneapolis Parks Foundation.

The Council is focused on analyzing current and future projects within the scope of the Lake Effect plan, examining fundraising avenues, and developing a strategy for creating a supporting organizational structure to shepherd the plan forward.

The Council is meeting in monthly workshops, held on September 29th and October 21st, with an upcoming workshop scheduled for November 18th.  At the conclusion of the workshops, the Council will review and adopt recommendations regarding priority projects, fundraising strategies, and an organizational structure in early December.  Community members are invited to attend the council workshops, view the visual presentations and meeting minutes online at www.wayzatalakeeffect.com.
