  • Staff is evaluating the processes and policies around banquets at the Civic Center to better serve internal and external customers of the facility.
  • Currently staff has been directed to not book reservations for Lion's Park until the park is fully evaluated and completed in the spring.
  • Staff again worked with 1st Graders at Mississippi Elementary in the selection process of the Summer Movie in the Park.  The process includes a math lesson in voting and staff shares information about the Parks in Coon Rapids.
  • Recreation staff will have a more prominent role in the organization and planning of the Love My Pet Fair in 2020.  Previous lead staff was from Police and will be retiring this summer.
