The Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission (GMRPTC) is announcing a series of application workshops to be held in each of the Commission’s six districts in mid-March (see attached flyer). These workshops will provide information and training on the Commission’s web-based Application Requesting Regional Designation as a Regional Park or Trail. A NEW web-based Master Planning tool will also be introduced at this workshop.
The Regional Designation application is the required first step for local park and trail facilities that wish to receive Legacy Parks and Trails funding for Greater Minnesota. Funding recommendations are available only for those facilities that are designated as regionally significant through this application process.
Please share this notice with your appropriate Parks & Trails staff, volunteers and/or elected officials. These workshops are the only planned in-person training on the new system in 2016. Applications will be due April 29.
More information about the workshops can be found in the attached notice and FAQ sheet. Registration for individual workshops can be found at http://www.eventbrite.com/o/gmrptc-8060574801. More information about the Commission can be found at www.gmrptcommission.org.
