Open houses set for greenway corridors

Dakota County will hold open houses for two greenway corridors – the Lake Marion-South Creek Greenway and the Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway – for residents to review and comment on the plans. The open houses are part of the year-long master planning process for the two greenways.

The open houses will be 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the Lebanon Hills Regional Park Visitor Center, 860 Cliff Road, Eagan, and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, at the Lakeville Water Treatment Facility, 18400 Ipava Ave., Lakeville.

Attendees can review and provide feedback to the planning team on alignment alternatives, design character, trailheads, habitat restoration, interpretive themes and more. The information for both greenway corridors will be presented at each open house.

The Lake Marion-South Creek Greenway travels 18 miles from the Minnesota River in Burnsville to Lake Marion in Lakeville and on to Rambling River Park in Farmington. The Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway travels 11 miles from the Village at Mendota Heights through the communities of Mendota Heights, Inver Grove Heights and Eagan to Lebanon Hills Regional Park.
